Program

Yoga and dance are ancient spiritual paths to self-realization, to live in wholeness and access your innate wisdom and happiness. There is a natural synergy between the two disciplines. Throughout history, they have endlessly inspired and influenced the other, ultimately they are one. The practices and studies in this eleven-day immersion into Goddess are based on the teachings of non-dual Tantra of Shiva/Shakti and the Indian classical dance of the Bharata Natyam style of the Thanjavur lineage.

You will explore the different aspects of Devi Shakti (energy or power) through Goddesses: Kali, Durga, Lakshmi, Saraswati, and Parvati, exploring sculpture-like posture, fluid asana, and dance movement, pranayama, mudra, mantras, mythology, symbolism, signature qualities of each goddess, meditation, and yantra. Each day, you will explore a meditation, allowing you to relax into your inner world of self-discovery and the magic of time spent in India. You will learn within an actual temple goddess mythology and symbolism and the wisdom tools that she offers you and your life path.

You will do so in historic Dehli and at ancient goddess worship sites and temples throughout the region of the state of Madhya Pradesh, the heart of India. Visiting circular yogini and secret forest temples and ancient places of goddess practices at the world famous UNESCO World Heritage Site of Khajuraho, the legendary for Tantric worship. 'Woman is the basis of the world, the universe is her form' by Shaktisangama Tantra (II.52).

  • What is Devi Shakti

  • Visions of different yoga philosophies in relation to Shakti

  • Devotional dance and asanas to awaken and embody Devi which can release tension or trauma
  • Meditations and contemplations that allow you to access, energize, and release your inner Shakti

These practices will reveal sacred powers within you to:
