Kundalini Yoga has changed my life in so many ways, and one of my most cherished lessons through this practice is the celebration of the Divine Feminine. This is a powerful, strong and devotional energy. Through the Divine Feminine we have the power to elevate, nourish and serve ourselves and others, to inspire, to heal, to commune and to be alone. We have the power to be graceful, tender, loving, challenging and assertive. Through this energy, what can't we do?
But, I have not always felt connected to this feminine energy. The name Jodh means undaunted and brave warrior for truth and righteousness. Through this name, I felt empowered by my masculine side. Over time, I felt there was another part of me that needed attention and nourishment. Last year, I spent a good deal of my practice and reflection cultivating my feminine energy. I was encouraged by my teacher to work with and use the name Jodh Kaur. Adding Kaur brings in the energy of the Princess of God. That was a tough one! It wasn't resonating for me, at all. For many weeks I struggled with this in my practice and finally, came to a space of acceptance.
In celebration of the Divine Feminine within me, I revisited the practice of the So Purkh meditation. Yogi Bhajan gave us this mantra to chant to heal our karmas around and relationships with the men in our lives (past, present, future). It was a profoundly healing experience and inspired me to offer a special workshop celebrating the Divine Feminine and sharing and practicing this meditation together.
The workshop on December 7 will include:
I began my 40 day practice around the same time last year and it brought me into 2019 a more loving, humble, graceful and compassionate person. I am grateful to be able to share this practice with you.
I am an animal loving-Vegan runner, I practice and teach Kundalini Yoga and I love to cook and eat flavorful plant-based food.
