Welcome to the Mata Shakti Ashram!

The mission of Mata Shakti Ashram is to promote the teachings of Kundalini Yoga and Meditation as taught by Yogi Bhajan, to provide education and practice of Sikh Dharma, and to be a place where co-creative gardening is manifested.

What does “Mata Shakti Ashram” mean?
*The word “Mata” means “mother” in India. In Portuguese and Spanish, the word “Mata” means wood or forest, and Mata Shakti Ashram is located in a quiet wooded setting.
*The word “shakti” means empowerment and primordial cosmic energy. Shakti represents the dynamic forces of feminine divine energy that move through the entire universe.
*The word “ashram” means the locus of activity for spiritual practices. We seek to be a spiritual center in Chapel Hill, but need your assistance to manifest this vision.
