Prema - Petra's Story

Petra is a certified Sound Therapist, Multi-Instrumental Musician, Cacao Ceremonialist, and Kundalini & Hatha Yoga Teacher. In 2013 her first Guru bestowed upon her the spiritual name, Prema Shakti, Prema meaning LOVE,  marking the beginning of a profound journey of self-discovery and healing.

Music has been Petra’s lifelong companion, studying many instruments from the age of 6.  As she entered her thirties, her passion for music led her to pursue a major in Music at the Conservatorium of Music. However, it was during the exploration of yogic studies and involvement in Kirtan groups that her path took an extraordinary turn towards sound and vibrational medicine. The revelation that sound and intention possess the power to heal resonated deeply.


Continuing a transformative expedition, Petra explored parts of South America, particularly the heart of the amazon jungle, where she encountered the transformative power of ceremony in Peru. These experiences awakened her connection to the healing potential of guitar and medicine music. Cacao, a sacred medicine, also became a constant companion, facilitating heart-opening ceremonies and teaching her to connect with her heart and inner truth.

Cacao Circles have been instrumental in the journey, guiding her toward self-love, nurturing, and nourishing, both through words and food. They've shown that positive thoughts shape a positive future. The path also led to explore healthy boundaries, soul connections, emotional processing, sovereign relations, and speaking the truth.


One of the most precious gifts from this journey has been the profound connection that cacao has fostered between Petra and her partner Chris. By participating in ceremonies together, speaking the truth from their hearts, expressing gratitude, and connecting on a profound level.

Petra’s personal journey has uncovered a wealth of knowledge in various fields, including gut health, superfoods, healing mushrooms, adaptogens, herbs & spices and the transformative properties of crystals and essential oils. Returning to Australia, she has further expanded her knowledge in Kundalini Yoga, breathwork, and shamanism.

Armed with a profound understanding of sound, energy and cacao, Petra is now dedicated to sharing her gifts with the world. Her mission is to help individuals embark on their own healing journeys, guiding them toward wholeness and empowerment through transformative sounds and healing circles.

The story is one of growth, exploration, and an unwavering commitment to the path of healing.
