The Devi Sangha is a unique event we've created to empower, uplift and celebrate the Divine Feminine. 

As in ancient times, we're reviving the powerful tradition of Devi Sangha, or Sisterhood Goddess circles. An opportunity for women to connect, adore and uplift one another. Stepping into the authenticity and raw feelings that Goddesses can create, share and express with one another.

In this evening, Viraja Prema will lead a Goddess circle where authentic expression will be encouraged, and seeing ourselves in each other will be the primary intention. We will then take the time and care to beautify one another, to dress up and adorn ourselves and feast in preparation to the Tantric Puja ceremony we'll be holding right after lead by Tantric Daka Ran Baron.

This Puja is based on Tantric principles, a Puja is a prayer.
In Tantra, Puja is a way of honoring and adoring the divine that dwells within each of us. The subtle sensual energies residing within our bodies are invoked, revered, and welcomed as honored guests at this feast of love.

In a Goddess Puja, we have the opportunity to express our unconditional love and adoration towards each other. This ceremony opens our hearts in a way that allows us to see the inner beauty and the Goddess within. We will be instructed in performing an ancient ritual which is simple in form yet very powerful in practice. As we accept the offerings and adoration, we connect with unconditional love and reflect that adoration back with our own presence. Taking part in these Pujas is a very powerful way to reconnect and relate with the divine feminine within us. It is through the practice of unconditional loving that we find that any emptiness or longing we feel within us can be filled with a simple act of giving.

This ancient ritual is thousands of years old. It was brought to life by Tantrikas who implemented the religious and spiritual practices of Yogis and sages into the Art of Adoration, the practice of breathing life and awareness through the five elements (Earth, Water, Fire, Air, Ether) in offering to the divine within every living being. We will offer fire, incense, roses, water, chocolate and more in adoration and worship of our divine Goddesses.

Women, Devis, though not required, you are welcome to dress for the evening – perhaps adorn yourself with jewelry you feel most happy in, or wear the scarf you love that you can’t wear to work. It is your evening; indulge yourself as you wish, but please be comfortable. As part of our event, we will have a joint adornment and clothing ritual where we'll help each other beautify and prepare for the ceremony.
