Online 21-Day Mantra Meditation (June 28-July 18)
“You can, with work and dedication, take on the very qualities of the goddess herself. Why? Because she already lies within you.” Thomas Ashley-Farrand, Namadeva Acharya
We begin on the New Moon!
New Practice Dates: June 28 – July 18
Registration will be open through July 1st.
You are invited to join me in a very powerful and sacred 21-day supported practice, which includes Mantra Japa and Guided Meditation. The repetition of mantra, Mantra Japa, is an ancient meditative tool which can reduce karma and ease suffering, bringing us closer to our true potential. Anyone can practice mantra. You do not need to have any previous experience with yoga or mantra or have any specific spiritual belief to fully receive the benefits.
ABOUT THIS PRACTICE:
When the energy is high and the solar light is at its highest, you will embrace a heightened frequency of healing power, plus attune to the strength and beauty of the inner goddess at its peak.
In the East, the Great Feminine is considered the primal source of power, the Shakti that flows through our bodies and in nature itself. Shakti creates the pulse of life.
Through the practices of Mantra Japa Meditation, you will experience:
- The Wonder and Wisdom of Goddess Saraswati
- The Beauty and Abundance of Goddess Lakshmi
- The Strength and Justice of Goddess Durga
- The Nourishment and Devotion of Goddess Parvati
- The Destruction and Power of Goddess Kali
A brief summary:
Mantra Japa Practice with recordings-you will receive a specific stack of Sanskrit mantras with instructions, plus recordings of the mantras. We’ll be chanting mantras to connect with Goddess Saraswati (for wisdom and discernment), Goddess Lakshmi (to recognize and appreciate the beauty and abundance within and without), Goddess Durga (for self-confidence, protection and justice), Goddess Parvati (to harmonize actions and will, bring nourishment and enhance devotion) and Goddess Kali (to move towards goals quickly and effectively).
Daily Newsletters-you will receive Daily Newsletters with inspirational teachings, images and quotes and a detailed break-down of all the Sanskrit mantras with their meanings and applications.
3 Live Zoom Calls-within the 21-days, we will join together with Live Zoom Calls. They include Group Chanting, Guided Healing Meditations and Q & A. These Live Zoom Calls are scheduled for June 21, June 30 and July 11 from 7-8pm EDT. They will be recorded for your convenience in case you cannot attend them live.
Guided Healing Meditations-during the Live Zoom Calls, you will be guided through visual meditations to help you feel grounded and at ease, to bring nourishment on a physical and emotional level, to connect with personal strength and power and to assist you towards heart-opening love and compassion.
Daily Collective Healing Group Energy-chanting the ancient vibrations of Sanskrit in a collective group, in the same 21-days, we will build the energy internally, bathe in light and expand/utilize these energies in whatever form is needed in our individual lives. In doing so, we affect all beings.
We chant, we visualize, we meditate, we manifest
Being reminded of the deep well of abundance and connection within and around us is vital during these times. It gives us an anchor to rest upon, a wellspring to relax into, a familiar, safe refuge.
This practice is designed to:
- Embody the Beauty and Strength of Goddess Energy
- Experience Power and Joy within you as your awareness deepens and your energy becomes clear and focused
- Feel the wealth of abundance and infinite blessings
- Bring forth Justice and Right Action
You will receive:
- A Sanskrit Mantra Japa Practice in its entirety with Mantra Recordings and details on the practice
- Daily Newsletters with inspirational teachings, images and quotes and a break-down of all the Sanskrit mantras with their meanings and applications
- Three Live Zoom Calls – June 28, July 7 and July 18 at 7pm EDT, recorded for your convenience
- Guided Healing Meditations within the 3 Live Zoom Calls
- Daily Collective Healing Group Energy
Infinite, transcendent, divine
Whether we seek balance in the areas of physical or mental health, finances/career, relationships or spiritual advancement/illumination, mantra disciplines give us the opportunity to accelerate the journey of personal transformation.
Here’s how this 21-Day Supported Mantra Practice works:
On the evening of June 27th you will receive the Sanskrit mantra practice in its entirety online with recordings of the mantras and details on the practice. There are varying lengths to the practice which range anywhere from 3-25 minutes. You can choose which form is best for you. The mantras do not change.
The mantras are then chanted daily, on your own time, at your convenience, for 21-days from June 28 to July 18.
You’ll be participating with like-minded folks all around the globe.
Materials for this practice will be sent out on the evening of June 27th.
Chanting in this way as a group, with the same mantras during the same 21-day period, can bring tremendous results. The energetic support intensifies the practice and brings great possibility for growth and life changes.
Contribute to a collective mission of peace and transformation
I look forward to sharing this journey with you!

“This is the first time I have experienced the transformative power of a stacked mantra and Likhita japa practice. During and since it ended, I have felt an inner strength and peace that I haven’t experienced before, an invisible infra-structure that is supporting me throughout the day, even without my calling on it! I especially enjoy chanting with Rajeshwari on the recordings sent, and feel part of an ongoing spiritual community I have been praying for." -Sita Howard, Mantra Student
“I have completed two forty day supported mantra practices with Rajeshwari. Although I was practicing at a distance, I felt energetically connected with her and with the group, especially when I chanted along to the mantra recordings. I appreciated Rajeshwari’s tender care for the group, the way she carefully designed each mantra sequence, and gave us information about the mantras bit by bit, so as not to overload. I also admired her passion, knowledge and availability to answer questions. With each forty day practice, I felt an energetic shift in my life as the old fell away and the new (aligned with my heart’s true desires) manifested. I highly recommend Rajeshwari as a knowledgeable, compassionate teacher.” -Janis McCallen, Mantra Student
