ABOUT THE IMMERSION
Join us for a day-length immersion invoking the Hindu goddess, Kali, co-facilitated by Dina Smirnova and Jacinta Percy. This is the continuation of a series of gatherings intended to explore sacred sound and yoga by examining various mystical themes with a strong focus on maintaining the integrity of the teachings and spiritual practices. This is an opportunity to build upon the practices we shared last year on a deeper level.
Kali: the fierce one, the Absolute, the Dark Mother. She teaches us to be fearless in the face of the fearful one, and her sword is that which slays through the illusions of the material world, revealing that which cannot be destroyed. Depending on the level of consciousness from which you approach Kali, she can either be seen as a goddess of the margins, scary and demonic-like or as Mother Kali, the benign and loving source of kindness and blessings.
If you’ve ever experienced outbursts of energy, boundless creative expression, sudden changes in life, or the process of birth itself, then you are familiar with Kali’s power. When we work with Kali Shakti, she invites us to consider where we are ego-driven and asks us to release our attachments radically. Some examples of where this energy may be present or needed include the process of purification and detoxification; burning limitations and karmic veils; strengthening the heart; liberating the shadow aspects of ourselves.
This gathering will be the third of a three-part series, exploring the triad of creation, sustenance, and transformation. We welcome all levels, bodies, and experiences into the space. Some prior yoga experience and knowledge are recommended but not required.
