Join us for a three-hour workshop invoking the Hindu goddess, Kali, co-facilitated by Dina Smirnova and Jacinta Percy. This is the continuation of a series of monthly gatherings intended to explore Sacred Sound & Yoga by examining various mystical themes with a strong focus on maintaining the integrity of the teachings and spiritual practices.
The Fierce One, the Absolute, the Dark Mother. She teaches us to be fearless in the face of the fearful one, and her sword is that which slays through the illusions of the material world, revealing that which cannot be destroyed. Depending on the level of consciousness from which you approach Kali, she can either be seen as a goddess of the margins, scary and demonic-like or as Mother Kali, the benign and loving source of kindness and blessings.
If you’ve ever experienced outbursts of energy, great creative expression, sudden changes in life, or the process of birth itself, then you are familiar with Kali’s power. When we work with Kali Shakti, she invites us to consider where we are ego-driven and asks us to radically release our attachments. Some examples of where this energy may be present or needed include the process of purification and detoxification; burning limitations and karmic veils; strengthening the heart; liberating the shadow aspects of ourselves.
This gathering is an opportunity to build upon the flowing essence of Saraswati and invoke the fiery energy of Kali. This is an intimate and potent container; thus there is a limited capacity of 20 people.
Some prior yoga experience and knowledge are recommended but not required. All levels, bodies, and backgrounds are welcome in the space.
