The devi mantra is one of the few things I’ve been consistent with in a long time. It’s grounding. It’s beautiful. It’s a practice

I think it’s become a life practice for me. Just love chanting it every morning! And I find myself chanting particular verses in the day when things come up. It’s magical.

Nectar of Navarātri

Relationship with the feminine divine has been one of the most beloved, surprising and deepening aspects of my practice and life.

Navarātri is a sacred and important time to deepen one’s practice, make extra time for practice, or launch a new practice for the year. 

If you’ve been wanting to bring devotion, mantra, bhakti, and deeper practice and connection to the divine into your life, this is the time to begin. 

If you feel called to devote time to cultivate your personal relationship with the feminine divine, I would be honored to share this beautiful heart opening time with you.
