Embodying the Sacred Feminine Immersion
Sunday 16th June, 2019
Sunday 10.00 – 13.00
Join experienced yoga practitioner Tarini Lee, to explore the depths of working with sacred feminine energies as empowering psychological archetypes and meditative tools that can support us all in daily life.
Tarini has studied in the Vedic Tradition for many years and is an experienced yoga therapist. During this immersion day, Tarini will guide us through getting to know a selection of the 10 Mahavidyas – wisdom goddesses. We will explore these archetypes practically, seeing how we embody their attributes and how we might integrate all aspects of their qualities and energies which can also be present in our soma (body) and psyche in overactive, latent or dormant forms.
Among Das Mahavidya are: the warrioress Bhairavi, who supports us in embodying our strength and power, the abundant beauty Kamala, who represents our capacity to experience pleasure, beauty and sensuality, the ego-polishing fearless Kali, and Lalita who strengthens our relationships, while preserving our individuality.
In this practical day, we will sense into who we might want to call on to assist us in navigating our world with greater ease. We will practice ways of invoking the goddesses and using yogic practices to embody them and their qualities to empower ourselves, such as mantra, visualisations, invoking mantras and general mantras (sacred sounds and chants) to clear the energy field, focus the mind and invite union with, and as, these divine energies. There will also be time for sharing, discussion, practice and integration.
This day is open to everyone of all genders.
