The Feminine Mystic

By: Halo Seronko


The Mystic is one who sees beyond the veils, who reaches from the world of form and into the great mystery of the formless!

The Mystic is one who seeks to be enraptured by the divine, who transmutes the mundane into the miraculous!

Those of us on a spiritual journey, no matter the path we choose; Yoga, Tantra, Sufism, Sacred Dance, Herbalism, Astrology, Taoism and so many more, are on the path of the Mystic, or as women, the path of the Mystica.

Mystics throughout time have been an incredible contribution to society. The Mystics would open doors into the divine, lay maps to the mystery, and translate the unknowable into the known. They were keepers of the keys of beauty, truth, unconditional love and pure presence. 

Today more and more women are setting out on the spiritual path as they feel a deep calling in their hearts. In a society that is increasingly infatuated with materialism, we are thirsting for a deeper knowing of the self from the inside out! 

Women are the vessels of the manifest with the ability to create life. As we reach from the material into the spiritual, the aim of the feminine Mystic is to then also draw the wisdom from the spiritual back into the earthly abode of our manifestation through our sacred embodiment!

This is the medicine for the times we are in! The reclamation of our spiritual expression through form!

When we realize ourselves in this way and free ourselves in this way, we become Mysticas: feminine translators of the mystery and embodiments of divinities beauty. We become gateways for others to realize their direct connection to spirit as we live through example. 

There are so many methods in which we become Mystica: we dance, we sing, we create beauty, we celebrate together!

The aim of the path is liberation into our ecstatic nature as love, every step of the way an offering of beauty onto the altar of life.

Halo Seronko is the creatrix of Shakti Temple Arts where she serves as a Temple Dancer, Priestess and Tantric Yogini guiding women deeper into their innate radiance and power as the living Goddess, Shakti.

Living between the holy land of India and the USA for the past 6 years, Halo has been bridging the worlds by bringing ancient traditions of Shakti embodiment to the West. While in India she studies Classical Indian Temple Dance and Tantra, and goes on extensive pilgrimages to sacred sites of the Goddess. The mysteries of the feminine and of the womb have been her guiding lights upon her quest for deeper and deeper embodied understanding of the Goddess, and thus she has been diving deep into ancient practices of Shakti cultivation from various traditions for the past decade.

Shakti Temple Arts is Halo’s offering to the rise of the Divine Feminine. Through time tested lineages of embodiment, consciousness, health and beauty practices, Shakti Temple Arts offers keys to unlocking the soul's yearning for expression of it's innate divinity in THIS life, and in THIS body.

Halo believes that Temple is a vessel for God/Goddess, be it an ancient architectural structure, or our very bodies, breath and consciousness. It is a way of life that acknowledges the Sacred in all that is, and offers reverence and awe in the form of beauty, and the cultivation of embodied awareness.

Halo has taught and performed these arts in India, Guatemala, Australia and along the West Coast of the USA.
