Are you inspired to reconnect, awaken and nurture your Feminine Energy? Do you feel called to listen to the internal feminine voice and the feminine power centres?
Do you feel a rush of energy when thinking of travelling to the ancient heart of the sacred goddess temples of India? Do you wish to be supported and guided in your travels and life journey in the safe container of sisterhood and with an experienced mentor?
The sages of Tantra have known for centuries that when you follow the path of Shakti, the ‘sacred feminine principle’ as personified by the goddess, the attributes of the deities can manifest spontaneously. By visiting the temples charged with these energies we tap into our own inner divine feminine to heal, replenish and reinvigorate.
THE AWAKENING SHAKTI PROGRAMME 2021
Jo will share her broad range of embodied practices from her 25 years of yoga and women's study from breath work, asana, embodied movement, chanting, mudra, mantra and deep relaxation. Alongside our practices, we will experience the 10 Maha Vidya temples and their loving and profound energy.
Jo has pionereed and lovingly developed this intensive immersion (Awakening Shakti) since 2018 and the programme has over 40 graduates worldwide. The programme gifts women a radical opportunity to listen to the feminine voice within and revalue the power of the feminine. From our first bleed to the wisdom of the menstrual cycle, pregnancy, birth to menopause there are so many 'siddhis' (mystical experiences) naturally arising for women beyond lineage, tapas or spiritual/religious tradition.
THE MAHA VIDYAS - THE WISDOM GODDESSES
The Kamakhya temple is one of the oldest and most revered Shakti Shrines in India. It is one of the most important of the 51 ‘Shaki Peeths' (located in India, Pakistan and Nepal), where the goddess Sati’s body is said to have landed on the earth. Kamakhya is her womb or 'yoni'. Kamakhya includes temples dedicated to all 10 wisdom goddesses (Maha Vidyas) of the tantric tradition from Kali to Dhumavati. Each one has a direct parallel in the female lifecycle from menarche to menopause which we will explore.
INDIA - THE MOTHERLAND
This trip is offered with enough comforts that it will suit a first time visitor but it is still an adventure, offered in the spirit of authenticity and non- commercialism. We respect local culture. Come with an open mind and heart and ideally a willingness to eat some Indian food! India can be challenging for the first time (or any!) visitor but we welcome you to join whatever your experience and will ‘look after you’.
We will stay in the Radisson Blu Guwahati Assam for your comfort and peace of mind.
