Power of the Goddess

“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

Free 3-Part On-Demand-Video Series

Join Rajeshwari Gretchen Carmel in the practices of Mantra Japa Meditation honoring the power of the goddess! Mantra Japa is an ancient meditative tool that can reduce karma and ease suffering, bringing you closer to your true potential. Anyone can participate. You do not need to have any previous experience with yoga or mantra or have any specific spiritual belief to fully receive the benefits.

Awaken the goddess within

Shakti, meaning “power” or “empowerment”, is the primordial cosmic energy, the creative power of the universe, the electric current that runs through your body and in nature, the very pulse of life made manifest.  

Shakti powers everything. It powers the entire cosmos, the evolving universe, and the evolution of consciousness within us. As the Shakti, coiled at the base of the spine, makes its way up the spine to the top of the head, it activates the major chakra energy centers, pierces the veils of ignorance, and can bring you to complete liberation. 

Embody the beauty and strength of goddess energy

As you chant the sacred words of the goddess, you take on the qualities in their perfected state. These celebrated deities offer purity, compassion, increased creativity, clarity of wisdom, power and skill, radiant spiritual energy and dynamic manifestation. Awaken, allow and experience these energies to a state of total freedom. 

Experience power and joy within you

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

Find justice and right action

At a time when world events feel heightened and the inner landscape of your personal journey continues to karmically unfold, practices such as mantra meditation can soothe and ground the spirit. Being reminded of the deep well of abundance and connection within and around you is vital during these times. It gives you an anchor to rest upon, a wellspring to relax into, a familiar, safe refuge.

Feel the wealth of abundance and infinite blessings

Chanting the ancient vibrations of Sanskrit, you will build the energy internally, bathe in light and expand/utilize these energies in whatever form is needed in your individual life. In doing so, you affect all beings.

Whether you seek balance in the areas of physical or mental health, finances/career, relationships, or spiritual advancement/illumination, mantra disciplines give the opportunity to accelerate the journey of personal transformation.
