Shakti Home Varkala was opened in 2018 by two woman’s Sonia Indigo with the precious assistance of Nora Dubro, her student and colleague since 2014, and since then, is open all year round, receiving guests from all over the world.
This is a place created by women and for women. It’s a retreat with a feminine energy, where you can just be yourself, “secured in the arms of the Mother India”, surrounded and supported by other like minded woman’s. Occasionally (very rarely) we may have couples, families or men’s with a more feminine, subtle, sensible energy, however, this is a save place created for the clients, students and friends from Sonia Indigo and Shakti Spiritual Healing Center which are 95% of woman, 2,5% from the gay community and 2,5% of men’s with a more feminine and sensible subtle energy.
We are located in South India, Kerala (God’s Own Country), Varkala beach, one of the Top 10 beaches in India, rated 3rd place by Tourists, and one of the First 30 Tour Destinations in the Planet, rated 28th place among the 100 top ‘Best Value Index’ around the globe.
The main beach is Papanasam beach. The word Papanasam means washing away sins. The legend says, that to take a dip in the waters of Papanasam Beach washes away all the sins in one’s life.

Sonia created the Shared Kitchen area in a way that makes you independent in making your own morning tea and meals. At your request, we can also serve you delicious homely food, salads and vegan food with fresh vegetables and fruits from the daily market. The nearest restaurants are 10 minutes walking from here.
Sonia and Nora are the body, mind, heart and soul of the place, from managing the place and looking after the guests, to gardening, cooking, cleaning, maintenance, office work and artistic painting, healing and teaching they do a bit of everything. Their creative mind is always “cooking” new ideas to improve Shakti Home, and every year there is something new to offer to guests.
