Lakshmi is the Hindu Goddess of Prosperity and Abundance. Though she favors virtuous hardworking people, she also showers her devotees with an abundance of joy, pleasure and all things that make people's hearts glad. She reminds us that we each deserve to be happy, prosperous, and satisfied with our lives.

During this presentation you will learn the meaning of the iconography behind Lakshmi and her connection to the long history of ancient mother goddess worship in India. You will hear the tale of how the Goddess of Good Fortune fled angered by the demons and gods. You will learn how the remorseful demons and gods persuaded Lakshmi to rise from the sea of milk returning prosperity and good fortune to the world.

This program includes a ritual on deservingness during which you will be guided to release those negative thoughts that often plague each one of us with feelings of unworthiness and un-deservingness. These negative thoughts are what prevent us from receiving the abundance of the universe. We will end with a dance of celebration opening us up to receive what we deserve and desire.
