• Women’s Bhagavad-Gita Reading Group for Spiritual Development

    Link visible for attendees

    In this group reading we will learn how to channel our occupation and daily activities towards supporting our spiritual and personal development. Expect to deepen your understanding of the world around us and gain clarity in everything that we tend to question in life. Who am I? What is the end goal of my work? How do I find God? What is death? How do we live life aligned with its purpose? All of these questions are answered, and more, in this self realization support and reading group for women, that I organize and facilitate.

    To read more about me go to https://www.bhaktiyogaretreat.org/my-story

    The Bhagavad Gita, As It Is, translated and purported by His Divine Grace AC Bhaktivedanta Swami Prabhupada, is a transcendental journey which supports us to understand the purpose of human life and what the qualities of our true being are. The Bhagavad Gita is the complete source of all yoga, derived directly from the Vedas.

    I consider the Bhagavad Gita as not just a book, but a seminar which takes us to different places to promote our growth, expansion, and self realization.

    A false conception is that women do not ever speak about philosophy. This woman's group provides a sacred space for us to defy the norms. Let's enjoy the process of discussing ancient philosophical principles and question our conditionning in an inclusive and safe environment.

    I have traveled the world as a monk, managed an ashram, and supported countless women to be empowered in their spirituality. I have over twenty years experience designing and facilitating personal development seminars. I love holding space for women to experience their pain and anguish safely as a cathartic means for metamorphosis towards self actualization.

    There are no study requirements or attendance expectations for this reading group. The only ground rule is RESPECT - respect for the text, respect for the author that purported the text, and respect for each other. It is also expected that we express everything truthfully - agreement, disagreement, triggers, hurt, dislikes, etc., in a respectful way. In this way, everyone is free to authentically share themselves. In order to grow spiritually, we need to know how to step out of our comfort zone. In this group, no topic is taboo. Expect to potentially discuss sex and sexuality, abortion, drugs, capital punishment, and other uncomfortable topics The text will not always be comfortable to decipher, it pushes our buttons and triggers the depths of our fears; however, in this sacred space we will clear the blockages preventing us from shining in true color.

    I hope you do join us for this adventure in conscious living.

  • Mindfulness & Mantra Meditation Hour

    Link visible for attendees

    The word mantra means "that which delivers the mind from material anxieties." For the last 35 years, I daily practice mantra chanting for at least 2 hours daily, focusing on the Maha Mantra. I can't imagine my life without this practice and I want to share it with you.

    Join us as we unwind from the day, and re-align our consciousness for a peaceful evening, with a short mindfulness visualization, followed by mantra meditation.

    Maha means “great” and mantra means “sacred chant for deliverance.”

    Research has shown that the chanting of this specific mantra also potentially reduces stress, depression and anxieties.

    It is explained in the vedic literature that the transcendental vibration established by the chanting of the Maha Mantra is the sublime method of reviving our original consciousness.

    You are invited to come in and allow yourself to have your own experience during this hour of mindfulness and mantra meditation. Be seated comfortably, ready to give the full hour to your inner well-being.

  • Pronounce, Recite, and Memorize Sanskrit Verses

    Link visible for attendees

    During this 30 minutes weekly, I invite you to practice pronouncing, reciting, and memorizing sanskrit verses, mainly from Bhagavad Gita, and the Sri Isopanisad.

    We will go slow to make sure all participants learn at their own level of confidence.

    It is an opportunity to get support on your pronunciation, and to ask questions. It is also an opportunity to support each others to learn verses, and get to have our mind engaged in sublime knowledge.

    I hope you join in often. Together we will memorize important verses for our life, and to share with others.

    In service, Malini devi dasi
