Goddess Worship

AN INITIATION INTO THE WISDOMS OF THE GODDESS.

09 MAY

21:oo-23:oo CET | 20:oo-22:oo GMT
*A recording will be made available,
if you were unable to make the exact date/time.
Just get in touch.

 

Between the 15th of May and the 18th of June the Tantric Calendar presents us with four weekly Mahavidya rituals dedicated to the Goddesses Matangi, Bagalamukhi, Chinnamaste, Dhumavati.

On Sunday the 9th of May, we shall gather in ritual to prepare the ground for the month before us, that the Tantric calendar dedicates to 4 of the Mahavidya goddesses of feminine wisdom. On this Free Ritual night we will spend two hours moving through four faces of the feminine, from Matangi, the outcast woman, to Bagalamukhi, the teacher of sacred sound, to Chinnamaste, the wild one of bloodthirsty lust, concluding with the ancient smokey crone known as Dhumavati.

Regular students, beginners and newcomers are welcome to join us in ritual.

On this night we will provide a ritual introduction to Tantra and its approach to working with the Dasha Mahavidyas, before proceeding with a guided meditation and physical Mudra practice for each of the four Mahavidya Goddesses. The aim will be to help us familiarise with their qualities through story and by working with their yantras, mantras and mudras. Additional exercises will be shared with the participants so that you may continue working with these goddesses and their energies in the following days in your own time.

This meeting will provide a general understanding of the journey we will embark on through the series of Mahavidya rituals, and it will lay the foundations on which the four rituals, described below, will be erected.

Suffice it to say, at this point, the proximity of the rituals pertaining to these four goddesses, invites us to see them as strongly interconnected, as four phases of a single journey.

When we move beyond the layer of iconography and myth, which encapsulate the energies and qualities of these Goddesses, and look deeper into their meaning, it is possible to see how Matangi, Bhagalamuki, Chinnamaste and Dhumavati take us through a process of separation, discernment, awakening, and death, as four necessary steps in our spiritual journey towards the great feminine power that the Tantrics call Shakti.

Ancient & sacred

On these healing circles you will practice a form of Yoga that is rarely available and accessible even in India today. You will take part in a sacred Yogic tradition that roots itself in India’s native shamanic wisdom & Tantric lineage handed down orally between generations of Yogis, Babas, Sadhus and Fakirs.
You will be exposed to the old tantric ways of seeking profound healing and spiritual awakening, including practicing in darkly-lit spaces to quieten the mind and awaken the senses to the body’s subtle energy currents, holding simple postures for long periods of time, and engaging in powerful breath-work to open-up the body and take the mind into altered states of consciousness.

GENTLE

The practice draws on postures seldom used in modern styles of yoga, ancient sequences that honour the mother and the divine feminine, gently opening-up the body to its highest levels of flexibility through minimal effort.
Integral to this experience will be the exploration of sound-currents present in the body (Nada Yoga) – perhaps one of Yoga’s greatest secrets and one of the most powerful vehicles through which the karmic patterns stored in the chakras can be accessed and released in pursuit of profound healing.

 

UNIQUE

Unique to this tradition is its simultaneous employment of Asanas (postures), aerobic & anaerobic Pranayam (breathwork), Mudras (gestures), and Mantras (sacred sounds).
The synergy created by the employment of these various yogic tools will lead you into altered states of consciousness and dream-like experiences aimed at facilitating a greater openness to inward journeying and an easier access to your subconscious.

UNBOUND

Because we are going to play with shamanic yogic traditions, the practice will take place outside of clearly time constraints. Generally, the practice will last about 6 hours, but if the group is ready to practice longer we might carry well into the night.

INCLUSIVE

The Circle is open to those interested in the healing path.
Tantra and Yoga practitioners, and those seeking healing, practitioners of the mystic arts. Both advanced and beginners will find a place in this circle.
If you have had or are having psychosis please get in touch directly with us as this is important to know about in this work. The same goes for those with strong mobility issues. Drug and alcohol users also need to inform us of their condition. Thank you.

 

 

The practice usually takes place in the dark or darkly-lit spaces.
