Devi

The role of the Divine Feminine

Lalita Devi is a divine feminine archetype needing urgent and greater recognition. She is the representation of Shakti in Form. She is aliveness in the most juicy way because of her ability to facilitate the unblocked flow of life. She is Shrichakra Raja nilaya- Lalitha Devi, the divine mother.

There are many representations of Devi as the divine mother, the mother of all mothers and the creative energy of life which gives life to new life. Like all mothers, this energy desires expression in life and it also desires that all life coexist in harmony. We can see this in our mothers today are they will work their fingers to the bone and keep

What is Dharma?

A mystery to those not knowing the essence of life

To get the best from life, you must love life and treat it with love.Via Vogue and lemonade

Dharma is living in accord with life while sustaining what is known and fruitful for all life.

In other words, to know Dharma in its fullness you must know life in its fullness and that is something few people achieve in their lifetimes. Therefore to know Dharma as a layperson without access to the accumulated knowledge of Vedanta requires a relaxation of beliefs and an openness to explore.

To put it simply, Dharma is a way of being in the world that sustains

Kundalini Yoga

Divine awakening

Kundalini yoga is largely a western fad laced with misconceptions and half-truths. Popularised by some teachers, kundalini yoga performed without proper guidance can cause very serious physical and psychological problems, therefore it should only be practised under the direct supervision of a qualified guru.

Defining Yoga

A path to unity and community

Life co-existing in time and space

Yoga as a word means simply means unity, but yoga as properly understood is a science of ‘self’ – it is a way to answer the age old questions; who am I, why am I here and how can I be happy.

Just think, you and I, we have this body, it’s such an amazing organism yet we know so little about it. Yoga helps to better care for and understand this body in much the same way a good mechanic knows and cares for your car.

Yoga Tantra

The art of transformation

Tantra yoga is not a clear classification within western yoga because for thousands of years it has been passed from master to student, and because of inherent dangers within tantric practices the real knowledge has been kept out of the public domain. So unless one is raised within Hindu or Buddhist societies engaged in tantric practise, understanding tantra in any classical sense is impossible without years of detailed study.

Most hear of Tantra as a new age buzz word that has evolved over the past 50 years. Mention tantra to many people and they think of kinky sex and a mystical union between men and women. This is a limited view because there is no
