SARASVATI MODULE COURSE CONTENT

Here is a description of the classes and also content. We hope to cover all of them, yet we want to also take the time needed for each process and allow the unfoldment of the training to be organic and natural according to the Devi’s needs. We ask for your understanding and heart to be open to receive as things are given and being unfolded. That is the way of the sacred feminine, ever in sacred symbiosis with what is. Of course if at any time, one Devi really doesn’t want to partake in any of the activities that is respected and honored but we encourage to trust the process and allow the heart to melt.

Rituals, Ceremonies

Mantras and guided meditation help us to manage our emotions, overcome fears and obstacles that hinder our natural loving expression in life.

This is a magical expression and participation mystique, a regression to the magical child yet this time with wisdom, understanding and depth.

Bhakti

It is an attitude that we will invite to reside in our hearts in and through every expression, practice, and learning. When we see what we have, it goes to the infinite. Everything is given, including my body, mind, and sense complex. When this fact is assimilated, Devotion is natural.

Devi Classes

Here we learn about our essential nature, we learn that we are lovable and worthy just as we are. Through stories from the Vedic Mythology we find lots of inspiration and support in life. We learn that the body is a temple; we neutralize complexes and judgments around it. We find a source of help and support through the teachings of Vedanta and the sharing with other women.

Devi Circles

Devi circles are magical, at times scary because here we will share with each other our stories and also reveal ourselves. We will learn how to invoke courage and strength to express out loud what has been untold. For many carry shame, guilt, hurt, judgments and fears.

One of the best ways to overcome them is to share and give voice to them and see that we are not alone. There is a background for it and there was helplessness. We can ask for help, we are worthy of it. We are ready to offer back what does not serve any longer. Based on different themes we will see how we have been conditioned and maybe holding on to wrong ideas and notions. In loving compassionate non-judgmental ways we let them go and unlearn.

Sacred Dance and Yoga help to process emotions, these practices are healing, strengthening, nourishing and simply beautiful.

Puja

Puja is a Vedic ritual.  It is a prayer with offerings. In a Puja we sit in front of an altar. It can be an established altar where we deliberately and consciously superimpose the universal power onto an object of our preference. It can also be somewhere in nature, near the ocean, in the woods or on top of a mountain where we use the elements as our object of worship.

In a Puja, I, the individual, relates to the total, the whole. The whole represents all knowledge, all power, all pervasiveness. It is the giver of all fruits of action, the cause of the whole universe. In other words, it is the infallible order.

We look upon the whole universe, known and unknown, as a conscious being, that manifests as forms and names, all of which is considered to be sacred and is not to be taken for granted.

Through the puja, we express our gratitude and invoke help, guidance, and blessings for the journey of life through prayers, mantras and offerings.

It is a way to sanctify and spiritualize ones life, either through daily puja and/or occasional puja for birth, birthdays, marriage, initiation into adulthood,  and death. Most anything can be celebrated and acknowledged through a puja ceremony.  

Meditation

We seek harmony, peace and well being. When we are in nature, we experience that satisfaction. When we look at the sun, at the sky, see the clouds, the birds, the mountains, the trees and animals we are accepting, at least in general. Yet when we meet and relate to people — mother, father, partner, sister and brother, employer — we find ourselves struggling, wanting them to behave in a certain manner.

We find ourselves wanting to change people, wanting to change the situation so that we can find that harmony again. It never works like that.

I have to find that satisfaction within myself, discovering that I am the very meaning of satisfaction.  I don’t need to change the world.  I can be accepting, compassionate, loving, caring and prayerful.

In meditation, we find harmony with what is. We find a place of spaciousness, accommodation and objectivity. We discover that, that place is myself, that there is always a place where I can rest and find solace and strength to face the many challenges of life.

A life of growth, of maturing and of gaining clarity about the truth of myself, the world and God.

Vedic Chanting

Mantras are specific prayers that have their origin in the Vedas. Chanting is a form of prayer, through which we can invoke the grace of the giver, who is the source of all knowledge and has all power.

Every action has a result and so do prayers. The result will be in the form of punyam, which is the unseen factor that helps to neutralize obstacles in our daily lives as well as grant us our wishes. Mantra chanting absorbs, integrates, heals, transforms and invokes blessings and protection.

Vedanta

Vedanta is the end portion of the Vedas that teaches Brahma Vidya, the knowledge of the limitless being, which is, according to the Upanishads, the Self.

Vedanta reveals that the nature of I is free from any limitation, it is one, non-dual being. The general understanding of the I is ‘I am limited’ time-wise, space-wise and knowledge-wise. It is because of this conclusion that I am struggling to become happy. This is what is referred to as ‘Samsara’.

In order to get out of that endless cycle of birth and death, I need to know my essential nature as free from death, free from change, free from any limitationwhatsoever.

Vedanta says,
You are the whole, you are full and complete as you are.
You are everything you want to be already.
You are the gold in and through all the ornaments.
All you need is to know, to remove the darkness of ignorance, to know yourself as such.

That is Freedom, that is Moksha. That is what ultimately every being is searching for in life, freedom from pain and suffering, freedom from the sense of smallness and inadequacy.

We all want to be happy, at all times and in all places.

We cannot find that in the world, the world is changing, that is the wonder of this creation, of this life.

Therefore I have to look somewhere else. Somewhere I have not yet thought of so far, somewhere closer than the closest.

Myself. That is Vedanta.

Sacred Feminine Yoga Practice

Sacred Feminine yoga practices supports our bodies to be strong, safe and comfortable to live in. Listening to the phases of our feminine home, we honor and heal rather than discipline and override our sensitive emotional and physiological shifts.

Pelvic Healthcare

We explore practices to reconnect to the pelvic floor, expanding on the general Moola bandha: root lock, exploring more subtle and focused ways of activation. Learn how to engage, relax and stretch different parts of the pelvic floor. The base of support for the spine and organs, a highly sensitive energetic center, a part of our body connected to strong emotions such as pleasure and shame – the pelvic floor is of great importance in our lives, often disconnected from and forgotten. We will acknowledge this part of our bodies for the structural, sensual, spiritual value it holds mother, father, partner, sister and brother, employer — we find ourselves struggling, wanting them to behave in a certain manner.

CORE EROTIC BLUEPRINT™ EVALUATION

A Core Erotic Blueprint ™ (CEB) is a map that helps you to understand your own sexuality and the sexuality of your lover. This map gives you clues about how to best arouse someone, what techniques to use, and how they like to be pleasured.

The erotic blueprint shows you how you’re erotically wired. Learning how to understand your own desires provides you with compassion and understanding about each other’s sexual needs and turn-ons.

It shows you where to go, what to do and what not to do. It’s a guide that gives you information about skill sets you need to take things to the next level. It teaches you your erotic love language with which to communicate compassionately leading you to a clearer path to pleasure.

Just like a fingerprint, we all have a core Erotic Blueprint. Knowing, accepting and expanding your core erotic wiring can open new doors in your relationship with yourself and others.

Intimacy & Consent

The most important thing to know about your sexuality is that it’s yours, completely and permanently. You get to choose if, when, how and with whom to share it. No one else has the right to choose for you.

It is about receiving and giving – what they are and are not, how they really work, how to tell the difference and why it matters. Understanding this one basic dynamic changes everything.

  • What “giving” and “receiving” REALLY are and why knowing the difference is crucial deeper, freer and easier on you.

  • Your own personal clarity.

  • A clear and effective container.

  • Skills for consent and empowerment.

Healing

Healing your sexuality can bring about clarity and empowerment in all areas of life, and the experience of compassion and affirmation can wipe away years of shame and confusion.

The next thing to know is that no matter how messed up, confused, or stuck you feel about your sexuality, it can be transformed. Healing is a natural process and an automatic result of paying attention. You are absolutely worth it.

We create a strong container of safety, love and acceptance, so that you can let go, rest into it, and follow your natural process. Your body knows exactly what it needs. Experiences can be sweet and tender, playful, energized, or intense. Emotional release is common. There is room for you here – your fears, your dreams, your yearnings, and your fully alive, fully feeling, outrageous, deep, wise, multi-faceted self.
