TTF® Reunion & Yogini Retreat
aka shakti summer camp !!
Temple Tribal Fusion® Reunion
& yogini retreat
+ optional TTF® Teacher Training
This special and joyous Reunion is meticulously curated to prepare for our in depth Yogini “Sadhana“ (practice, ritual, transmission) which is generously offered to us by my beloved Yogini & Shakti Teacher. She has authorized me to take you through this experience on her behalf (Read her letter to you below for details). Her wisdom stream has tremendously influenced TTF®. This is truly an incredible opportunity and blessing for all of us!! And even more so since we have the invitation to meet in person to nurture and more deeply establish our “Sangha” (community & allies sharing a path of Transformational Discipline).
Our Reunion days leading up to the Yogini Sadhana prepare and heighten our bodies, minds, energy/Shakti, devotion, and understanding specifically for this sadhana and face to face, womb to womb introduction to the 64 Yoginis.
I sincerely hope to see you there! ooxx Tenley

Letter to you from my yogini teacher
Many of you were told Aditi Devi would be leading us through “Her 100 Names” Sadhana. This letter explains why she cannot, and authorizing me to lead an authentic preparatory Yogini Sadhana:
Dear Yoginis, It is with great sadness I am sending this note to all of you. I have been looking forward to being with each of you, and Tenley Devi, this August in Bend. Unfortunately, because of my mother’s health, I will not be able to join you after all.
I know that many of you have already taken up the sadhana and have been preparing in other ways with your attention, time, focus, and resources to make the journey to Bend. Please know, I continue to aspire to meet each of you and introduce you to a precious Yogini sadhana in the future.
In the meantime, the retreat in Bend will instead be led—with my blessings—by your own beloved Tenley Devi. Along with the usual movement-based sessions she offers, Tenley will also be sharing her own journey with the yoginis of east India. These yoginis are sacred feminine beings who inhabit round open-air temples in groupings of 64 (or 81 sometimes) and who are worshipped after dark in the old tantric ways. These circles of sacred yoginis have much to teach us about how to walk the path and bring our personal sadhana to fruition.
I have authorized Tenley Devi to offer you a small Yogini Sadhana that you will learn and can begin to do on your own. This is a joyous opportunity, and a rare one. Your own internal preparation to receive this Yogini Sadhana has already begun with your immersion in “The Song of the Hundred Names.” It is rare to receive a Yogini Sadhana, and rare to receive one from someone who has spent as much time immersed in this ancient wisdom as Tenley Devi has.
One thing to remember though, —and this is different from “The Song of the Hundred Names”—part of the requirement for the small Yogini Sadhana is that you do not share it with others, nor discuss it with anyone who does not attend the Bend retreat in August. Another more inner way to say it is that this small Yogini Sadhana requires samaya, the sacred vow to hold this all most sacred and secret and not to discuss it with others. Tenley Devi can describe this to all of you in more detail in person. Yet, please know going in, that this is not to be discussed with others, nor shared on social media, nor broadcast in any way. Keep it close and the energies will come to fruition within the sacred temple of your own body.
Please know you are in good hands and Ma is with all of us. I do wish I could be there with you, yet my commitment to care for my aging mother takes priority now. May your time with Tenley Devi in August be all you could have hoped for and more. She has my blessings and love, and so do you.
Love & Jai Ma, Aditi Devi
Additional important info from Tenley: After registration, you will be emailed everything you need to know to prepare and bring. Our Reunion days will be a detailed, inspiring, and powerful path leading us directly into this Yogini Sadhana and Temple experience.
The Reunion is to prepare and heighten our bodies, minds, energy/Shakti, devotion, and understanding specifically for this sadhana and face to face, womb to womb introduction to the 64 Yoginis.
Honestly, providing this 64 Yogini Sadhana BEFORE joining Aditi in person feels much more easeful and appropriate. Yogini study and practice can be a “fast and furious” path of transformation, thus needs to be done with care. The more pace and grace we can meet it, the more ease our psyches have unraveling and our bodies have embodying/integrating this massive level of Shakti.
If you would like to attend the private retreat with Aditi Devi next year, then please attend this pre-requisite and precious gathering, providing you an easeful introduction to Yoginis.
Contact me with questions. In celebration & devotion, Tenley
