The Shakti Sessions: Embodying The Goddess

Dive into the transformative power of the divine feminine. In the Tantric tradition, the ancient seers embodied this sacred vibration as an expression of Shakti…the divine feminine power. Following in this ancient tradition (& with a modern twist), each month we will meet to learn, embody, connect with one another, and connect within.

 

Embark on a journey where we explore what it feels like to embody life affirming qualities of ancient deities within the modern day context of all that you are.  Inspired by stories, myths, and teachings of the divine feminine, you will reconnect to your own powers through aligned yoga asana, breath work, mantra, contemplation, relaxation, and meditation. Each month we will explore the powers that these wisdom keepers hold, and learn how we can incorporate these attributes into our lives. The essence focused on merging aspects of the ancient wisdom of the divine within you...here and now. 

 

Experience the protective powers within you, shift the way you view the world, cleanse the mental, physical and emotional bodies through the practice of deity yoga.  Most importantly, this work presents the opportunity to shift the way we see ourselves, seeing the divine qualities we already hold.

The essence of Sita shows us selfless love and service and invites us to step through the door to surrender. It is through her unwavering devotion and trust that her whole existence becomes an expression of that love, though service. Surrender as a path to opening...submission as a form of trusting in the universe.
