Dear Yogini Sister..

Dear Yogini sister, you have responded to the call. I bow. Feed your intention. Stay rooted in compassion, empathy, encouragement and intuition, and it will navigate you through the fear. Fear is just a feeling, coming and going, your deeper intention is the voice of evolution. :: Chameli Devi

We are women who each in her own way is practicing her faith ~ whatever it may be. We’ve been doing it for years and years. Being Indian, the word [Read More...]

The Way Things Are

Guest blog by Dominique Youkhehpaz “I can’t believe her. She’s so flaky, and she always wants something from me,” I overheard a woman complaining one afternoon at a café.  I had just finished typing up notes about the Awakening Women Global Sisterhood Manifesto—a set of guidelines within Awakening Women for creating a conscious women’s culture—and [Read More...]

Dare to let that holy flame within you grow hot and dangerous

Come closer beloved Yogini, and re-claim desire as your holy connection with life itself. Can you enjoy how desire rushes through you? Sometimes fierce and strong as a hundred wild horses, sometimes a magnetic depth all the way to the inside of the inside. In your willingness to stay present, and to feel the raw [Read More...]

A Practice of Feminine Leadership

Every thing appearing in your experience right now, each sound, each thought, each feeling each pain, each pleasure, 
ALL of it, is the dance of Shiva/Shakti – an 
outpouring of unfathomable creativity. Each appearance is a wave arising and dissolving
 out of Lalita Devi, the one mysterious ocean. This is why the seeking for a [Read More...]

Guest blog by Miri Kalliwoda This was my third time in Corfu, and each time I meet new challenges and it is always teaching me something important for life.

Sister of Truth, something beautiful is calling you.

…a movement from within, urging you to leave the safety of the known. It is a deep and organic process, very much like when the seed, contained, perfect in itself, is moved from within by an unstoppable yearning to taste itself in all its expressions. The treasure that was hidden within it is risking everything [Read More...]

India’s Daughters ~ living Goddesses

Guest post by Sukhvinder Sircar ‘We were made for these times’. We hang our head in shame for losing daughters to rape. Rape, a heinous demon that devours women, but keeps them alive, shackled in shame. Rape is a scheming, devious demon that converts the victim into a culprit. A raped woman brings the biggest [Read More...]

We have prepared for this time.

Amazing one, We live in a time the prophets have spoken about for eons, it is the end of 2012. This is not a time to ask “what will happen to me/us?” This is a time to fully commit to the wisdom of your wide-open heart. Not to wait for it all to change, or [Read More...]

Spiritual practice, Sadhana, can be the kindest gift 
you can give to yourself and the world.

A future goal of perfection will never make sweaty, hot and holy love to you. Why chase a frigid lover made of plastic, when right here right now, intimacy itself is yearning to love you to pieces, to love you all the way in. Awakening, like love, is not an achievement. It is a blossoming [Read More...]

A post card from Greece, 3.

                Join the Yogini as she is aligning her hips with the heartbeat of now, wild and soft, dancing through the muddy waters, dancing through the bliss. Dancing fire, dancing silence. Dancing sunrise, dancing sisterhood. She is here for the real, and will not settle for less. No plastic [Read More...]

A post card from Greece, 2

                      There are birds who have a key to the inside of the inside. They are hanging out outside my window, tickling me apart into particles made of song until I am one hundred birds, taking off. Corfu, Greece July 17, 2012   Image www.bibbiefriman.tumblr.com

A post card from Greece, 1

                  Last night She showed me a tenth of an inch of her little toe. The beauty knocked me out for several hours, yet when I came to my senses again I begged for more. Since then I have been laying here, waiting. Sometimes She appears, as [Read More...]

Returning Home

A woman’s journey back into the body is a journey of awakening, a journey of liberation in its most genuine meaning. We are blessed today by living and enjoying the fruits of the woman’s liberation movement. Women in the western world are enjoying rights, freedom and empowerment that we may never have experienced before on [Read More...]

A ticket for my new life

When the Yoginis gathers in Corfu, something magical happens

Dear Sisters, Since the first time we gathered on the magical island of Corfu five years ago, our practice and connection to the ancient lineage of feminine practitioners have deepened in ways I could never have imagined.
