Cultivating the ground for Traditional Tantric Sadhana
A hallmark of a living wisdom tradition (lineage) is that it is enlivened by the teacher-student relationship. The teachings of a tradition remain consistent through thousands of years and yet are enlivened by the experience of the teacher and their ability to give relevant teachings to the student at the right time. It is not enough to “parrot” information but to fully live it and Be it for lineage to flow forward to future generations. Teachings are also enlivened through a student’s practice and “tastes” unique on each person as the intelligence of the practice begins to flow out into daily life. When a sangha (spiritual community) is fully participating together in this way there is a living field of support and joy.
Sadhana is a daily approach to engaging with the Wisdom Consciousness (Deity) through mantra, yantra, rituals (such as pujas, homas and tarpanams) and how to be a student. These sadhanas are encompassing and will affect us at every level. Psychologically, emotionally and Spiritually.
Engaging with a living wisdom tradition allows the transformation of a limited mind entrenched in habitual suffering, to a mind creatively inspired by a global and ultimately a Universal point of view. This is the mind in Union with the Heart.

Durga is an essential force & power of Consciousness. Her field of Consciousness supports a shift from moving in the world with fear and grasping to moving with fluid strength and fortitude. Because Durga works with our fear it will also mean She works with our Desires- refining them to align with value systems that support the release of suffering. For ourselves and all Beings.

One of the most prominent qualities Ganesha is known for is the Removal of Obstacles. He is often invoked at the beginning of any endeavor for this purpose. He is also known as Ganapati which translates as “wedded to the senses.” His qualities of discernment allow us to be in the material world but helps us to keep our eyes on the Divine Mother. We will learn more depth teachings on Ganesh from the Shri Vidya orientation, learn his mantra and have guidance for a daily practice. For more information....

Awareness is the uncontrived, unattached recognition of the experience of movement- the movement of the arising and dissolving of thoughts in the continuum of Mind, the appearance and the disappearance of phenomena in the vastness of intrinsic space. There is only the sheer exquisiteness of this movement.
This is what we actually are.
Registration ends June 1st. Program begins the weekend of June 25, 2022
the importance of lineage in Tantra
Without the context of the lineage or an authorized teacher to illuminate these wisdoms for us then we run the risk of taking these teachings and trying to make them fit to our current capacity and worldview. Thus we run in circles and create even more tension to fit into a spiritual perfectionism. With the careful guidance of an authorized teacher to help us dismantle our current limiting identity constructs, the wisdom begins to shine through our direct experience and is integrated and digestible into our daily life. Action is effortless.
