This song by Radha aka Jacqueline Maxwell of Bhakti Yoga Shala moved my heart as it was the time of my mother's memorial. It is not about the outer form. It reminded me of how healing and sweet like honey that support I would receive from my mother who always loved me and saw the beauty in me even when through challenges, through times when you are cracked open, vulnerable. The beauty that cracks through is the grace of the goddess, the love from the the Great Mother. This is the spirit of Spring Navaratri. Tender and fierce love.
Welcome to Fall Navaratri!
Navaratri is a 10-day sadhana period dedicated to the triple form of the Great Mother that is celebrated around the world during the transforming period of the Autumn Equinox when the world is in a delicate balance.
Beginning at the turning point of the Autumn Equinox this year, Shakti Sadhana opens our life to transform (Ma Durga), create (Ma Saraswati), sustain as
abundant love (Sri Lakshmi) and celebrate the victory of consciousness as the culminating point of the sadhana period (Vijaya Dashami).
This journey is accompanied by simple life-sadhanas and a period of blessing and fortifying one's home to bless and celebrate the fruition of the year's
journey at the following New Moon. This is a process that is inclusive to all spiritual backgrounds and encourages a personal approach to the universal
teachings and practical wisdom of yoga.
Sadhana includes guided audio meditations, videos and an active FB group.
You can choose from 10 minutes to 1.5 hour of practice a day and connect with the collective in this transformative sadhana. Once you enroll, you can join the group every year.
May all beings know the peace and support of the Great Mother.
Jaya Mataji ki Jai!
