Navaratri is a time of honouring Woman and performing Graha Shanti. Graha Shanti is the Yogic practice of balancing the planetary energies within the heart, mind, body and soul. We will do this through a mixture of Tantric Yogic practices that pertain to each particular aspect of the 9 fold Goddess of eternity.
These 9 Tantric planetary rituals work by aligning to subtle energies that nature presents at this astrologicaly aligned annual junction. We will align to the subtle astral forces through the intermediary of the 9 Goddesses of the night forces who are each embodiments of the planetary maneuvers that take place astrally at this time.
Such rituals have the potential
to melt frozen states of consciousness
and liberate inner afflictions.
We will take 9 nights to work with the planetary energies that possess the soul. A planet is called a Grah by the Yogins. Collectively known as the Navagrah (nine planets). Grah literally means ‘that which pulls you out of your seat of power’.
When a Grah pulls us, we do not see from a place of power, but rather are pulled into participation in the dramas of dreams of a disempowering reality that seems altogether too real to us when we are involved in the midst of it. Yet the potential for resolving our inner Karmic-constellations exists when we learn the Karmic lessons that the planets present to us.
We learn these lessons of destiny by integrating and resolving any unconscious knots of energy that bind the sacred heart. We invite all to come to a 9 night long, ritual initiation into the 9 planetary Goddesses of the night forces.
