In this emerging age of the empowered feminine, individuals are seeking out methods to channel and invoke their energy in productive ways.
The yoginī traditions of India and Nepal offer a roadmap and tools for cultivating inner transmutation and outer transformation. These traditions, while ancient, can still be found in parts of India today; their awakened iconography and holistic cosmology direct the practitioner to the center of their own mandala and therefore to the center of his or her own power.
In this 4-week online course, instructor Laura Amazzone will take you on the yoginī’s adventure to the center of the mandala, where the differentiating and distorting forces of a patriarchal paradigm finally surrender and succumb to the healing and nourishing ground of the empowered feminine.
On this four-week journey, you will discover the rich history, philosophy, cosmology and iconography of the yoginī traditions of India and Nepal. You will explore the rich symbolism of these ancient traditions and learn how to engage with them in your own practice and life.
This course is not simply for female modern postural yoga practitioners (the demographic commonly associated with the word yoginī today). It is not simply for those interested in the historical curiosities of an ancient tradition. This course is for those who who seek a living representation of the ground of existence and tools, principles and practices for aligning with that primordial ground.
We hope you join us for this four-week adventure to the center of the yoginī mandala.
