Release, Restore, Tap Into
The Rhythm of The Season
Everything we ingest becomes our consciousness.
Our consciousness becomes our behavior, our relationships, our worldview.
How do you cleanse your palate and cultivate your sensitivity?
Join me Oct. 9-20 for a virtual Fall Cleanse guided by the Goddess wisdom of Navaratri, an ancient celebration invoking the transformational power of the feminine. Attune your body, mind, and spirit to the feminine forces of Durga, Lakshmi, and Saraswati. Over the course of these nine sacred nights, you’ll receive three asana practices, three meditations, three mantras, and a step-by-step Ayurvedic restoration protocol for your body and mind.
What I love about the divine feminine is that aligning with Her gives us access to the power of our sensitivity so that we no longer have to be afraid of what may show up in life. I used to be so ashamed of my emotional volatility that I would literally stuff myself to the gills with food until I couldn't feel anything but physical pain. In the aftermath, I felt more shame, and so I hid myself away from friends, community, opportunities, my life. In that solitude I developed a dependence on alcohol. When I committed to facing the feelings of fear, sadness, inadequacy and shame, I was immediately stripped of many things in order to make room for the nourishment I needed in order to heal. This is the force of Kali. She is described as many things, but most often the word is fierce, frightening, or terrible. But the ancients say that she is only frightening to those who are not ready to see the truth.
Once we have faced our soul’s cry for transformation, we ready ourselves to receive, deeply, the nourishment of our earthly existence. Food, sleep, and sex are the pillars of our well-being, and they are available to us as part of what we must do to survive. Examining beliefs around deservability and cultivating receptivity in the heart is the work of Lakshmi, whose name means ‘Auspiciousness.’ She is the luminous quality of the sunrise, and she beckons us into delight, enjoyment, and healthy boundaries.
The grand finale of our journey through consciousness brings us to our unique and necessary desire to create - to be in the flow with our soul’s purpose. What turns you on? What sends you into theta state? What is your creative gift to the planet? Working with the shakti of Saraswati - ‘she who flows’ - is like working with moonlight: intuitive, nourishing, and internal.
Are you ready to recalibrate to the wisdom of the divine feminine? Are you ready to nourish your body, your mind, your spirit, at the deepest level? Are you ready to dive in?
