Where should such a goddess turn?
Kali, mistress of the temporal worlds
Wants bliss defined in human terms.
Staid Ganesha knows this wildness
Must be curbed, Shiva, peripatetic
Agrees, and across the wilderness
Both gift Kali a companion eagle, hurt
By no arrow, fed on nothing, it returns
Each night to its eyrie in her heart.
– Rukmini Bhaya Nair, Kali –
Hello, fellow friends on the path,
This month, I’ve themed all the LIVE classes around a god or goddess of the Hindu Pantheon. Each week, the class will include a 15-minute storytelling session around the selected deity and a 45-min vinyasa session to follow. However, the last class of the month, February 27th, I’ll be offering a 2-hour practice!!
PS- that doesn’t mean we’ll be doing asana for 2 hours, but instead, we’ll do mantra, meditation, and asana!!! You can see this month’s class line up here.
The gods and goddesses represent archetypes that live within; in Awakening Shakti, Sally Kempton explores how the goddesses are experienced in four ways:
- As energies that reveal themselves in the natural elements of human culture,
- As distinct divine personalities,
- As aspects of our own unique personality and essence,
- As the awakened Kundalini Shakti.
Today, we’ll be exploring one of my favorite goddesses, Kali, the Goddess of Revolution. Be prepared for a fiery practice!
Today is the raffle for the 30-Day Challenge! Please join me for the LIVE raffle after class today if you took part in the challenge. If you cannot make the class, we’ll start the raffle a little after 12pm, if you’d like to watch.
SHOUT OUT TO THE COMMUNITY!!
It’s been so wonderful to see so many of you in the Facebook Group supporting the dialogue. One of the things I enjoy about the class-of-the-day and the 30-day challenges is how people share pictures of their home studios and the pets/kids who join! It’s great to see that your practices are a family affair.
If you aren’t able to make the class, we’ll post the on-demand replay in the New Release playlist 24-hours after the class has gone live.
