Goddess Cleanse

Harnessing the Nourishment and Fulfillment of Navaratri

 

Navaratri (Nine Nights) is a celebration of the divine feminine which coincides with the Vernal and Autumnal Equinox.  In India this celebration is full of mantras and parties and rituals and special events.  In the US, well, we have a less reverent relationship to nature, but through our modern technological channels, we can connect ourselves to like-minded souls seeking deep nourishment and healing through ritual practices and food. 

The Goddess Cleanse is based on the Ayurvedic principle of Dinacarya, or daily ritual, and consists of varying levels of intensity based on your needs at the time.  Each participant will be given a full basket of tools and resources to choose from throughout the nine-day journey, and you will have access to these tools forever to revive and enhance the pieces you found most nourishing.

Creating something sustainable requires two things: practicality and pleasure.  If it's not practical, it's a waste of time, if it's not pleasurable, it's a waste of energy.  The Goddess Cleanse is absolutely BOTH.  The way in is through the shakti of the three wisdom goddesses - Kali, Lakshmi and Saraswati.  Each deity expresses a unique power (shakti) that facilitates a shift in our perception and therefore behavior.  Together we will explore how these shaktis express themselves through our unique experience in order to develop a personal and deeply satisfying dinacarya around food, movement and devotion.

Each of these deities is an expression of a unique wave of shakti, or natural power, and during Navaratri we tap into these powers in ourselves.  Working with deities is a little like working with the senses in that there is no way to singularly describe how something feels or smells or tastes because each of us has our own nuanced experience. Each deity’s shakti will occur to you in a unique way, although each has her own true essence.  

This program, when engaged with curiosity and sensitivity, will help you unpack and clear out any self-defeating patterns with which you might be grappling.  Feelings of stagnation, uncertainty, judgment, worry or boredom will be addressed during the cleanse.  If you have experience with cleanse programs emphasizing toxicity and weight loss I encourage you to put that aside.  The goddess wisdom says that no part of life can be left out, and through this inclusion of our experience - whether we want to repeat that experience or not, whether we have judged it right or wrong - is the key to our overall health, vitality, and fulfillment.
