WHAT STUDENTS SAY
"Halo Seronko is the wise sister guide we all need in the sacred practices of Temple Arts Studies. Her life-long dedication and sincere commitment to her dharmic path of dance and devotion offers sheltering signposts for grief-stricken hearts yearning for pathways of beauty and liberation. With nurturing attention to her students, she gently witnesses fears and hesitations to subside as we shed our pain stories, ancient traumas and dive deep into the sacred arts of anchoring and sustenance. Arriving in our own unique ways (stumbling, blocking, falling, breaking and opening), each student enters the temple under the gaze of her encouraging guidance and intuitive urgency of tending to our individual and collective healing."
— Kanwal Rahim

Tantra is a path of awakening,
A path of remembrance,
A path of expansion.
It is not an abstract concept to be philosophized,
It is to be lived through direct embodied experience.
Tantra invites us to be penetrated by life,
To live in a way that breathes beauty
into every action, thought and spoken word
until our life becomes a play of love.
It is a way of being that is so natural for the liberated feminine.
A way that is easy to forget under the weight of life’s burdens
Where we can lose sight of the deeper meaning
of life and why we are here;
Where the mystical hides in the costume of the mundane
She begins to awaken within us,
Whispering in our hearts
That it is time for us to remember who we are at our deepest core
And in doing so reclaim our path as Her priestesses.
Open the Temple Gates Within
and Let Shakti Lead the Way
