Over the past few months, the Ten Faces of the Goddess workshops have been moving and touching the souls of the women in our community.
Here are some reflections from one of the particpants, Cintia:
These workshops introduce the ancient Tantric knowledge of the Mahavidyas, the ten facets of the Divine Feminine that are expressed in many of the traits present in every woman.
Each workshop feels like a unique mysterious enticing dance of the Goddess touching each woman, who finds their own reflection in each Mahavidya, as they manifest the Divine Feminine qualities to life and unveil endless treasures within each of them.
As every session comes to a close, there is a feeling of bonding, sisterhood and for many a sensation of being part of the magnetic entrancing dance of the Goddess – part of Her body, and Her many faces.
In the Tara workshop each woman delved into a journey of love and compassion.
We were able to look deep inside the souls of the other women, and find a mother, a sister, a friend who is there not just to help those she loves, but the whole Universe. That was the face of Tara. That was the face inside each of us. That was the face reflecting back to us in the eyes and hearts of each woman; our own essence…
We found the power of the feminine in holding each one of us in love, support and presence… in holding a space of compassion, empathy and forgiveness for every sister, mother, daughter, wife, lover in each season of life, in times of smiles and times of tears… we felt like this for each other… we felt this Goddess power of Tara emerging in us, naturally uplifting each woman, bonding us naturally together as cells of Her Spirit and extensions of Her unconditional love, to all the beings in the Universe.
In Tripura Sundari women found the meaning of true beauty, love and harmony.
Women discovered that True Beauty is an Universal truth, that is essential to the growth and evolution of Humanity. When it is present it brings a sense of Harmony, elation, of reaching a higher ineffable understanding…it touches the soul. We witness the beauty that exists inside ourselves with a mirror exercise, and in every woman who allows herself to shine from within, in authenticity and the embodiment of her core feminine essence. We experienced how beauty is not only interior, but is present also externally in every feature, in every curve, in every unique feminine body, as all are manifestations of the Eternal Goddess.
In Tripura Sundari we also explored how beauty is also what animates art. Who has never been touched by a piece of art, poetry, a book, by music that brought tears to the eyes?
And love! Love… that takes us to the heights of human experience, that makes humans feel invincible, through which the most incredible miracles, the most unbelievable selfless acts became a reality. That love starts inside us first. And love is what unites us, what makes us whole, alive and what makes life possible and the Universe one!
Feedback from the workshops:
“I feel I know myself better and that I can manifest more of my feminine qualities!”
“I really appreciate being in the company of other women and exploring the Divine Feminine and how She manifests in me and my life. “
“Discovering more in-depth the nuances of the Cosmic Powers and the breadth of the gifts they manifest in our inner feminine world is such an enrichment and it brings so much joy to my soul!”
The great goddess Tara – the shining light who guides all spiritual seekers. Tara is one of the quickest of the Maha Vidyas to respond to our calls for help. She is also the bestower of grace and the one who can help with compassion and forgiveness.
The great Goddess Tripura Sundari. The one who governs love, beauty, elevated eroticism. And inspiration for all women walking the tantric path.
