MAHADEVI – THE GREAT GODDESS WITHIN
// A Workshop for Women.
Saturday 24th June, 4:00 – 7:00pm.
£18.00. Spaces limited, pre-booking advised.
Gather for a new moon late afternoon with Mahadevi, the Great Goddess, exploring her multifaceted personalities and gifts through a practice incorporating the Goddess archetypes.
Acknowledging the elemental forces and our connection to a wider cyclical nature, we’ll explore the Goddess’ capacity to create, to sustain and nurture; her ability to tolerate the unknown; her love of the dark and the night and the moon; the wisdom of the circle, not the line.
Inspired by the ancient scriptures, the Upanishads, and in particular the Devi Upanishad, this workshop will incorporate an introduction to the ‘Tridevi’ – three goddesses who are the manifestations of the Great Goddess herself. Our physical practice will draw on asana, mudra, and mantra to explore each of these faces of the Goddess; from insight and wisdom, to balance and serenity, to fierce transformation and power. We will close the practice with a deep relaxation and a chance to gather together and sing out the Goddess, in her many forms, from within.
Jai Maha Devi!
Workshop runs from 4 – 6:30pm, with tea, chats and treats until 7pm.

All the Gods waited upon the Goddess and asked: ‘Great Goddess, who art thou?’
She replied: ‘I am essentially Brahman (the ultimate reality). From me has proceeded the world compromising Prakrti (matter) and Purusha (consciousness). I am all forms of bliss and non-bliss. Knowledge and ignorance are myself. I am the five elements. I am the entire universe. I am the Vedas. I am the born; I am the unborn. Below, and above, and all around am I.’
