with Chameli Ardagh and guest teachers
Maleda Gebremedhin, Founder of Womb Matrix Healing
Dominique Youkhehpaz, Awakening Women Teacher
You can start this course at any time.
Earth is birthing herself as you.
Gather wise women around you—
those who know you are neither crazy nor lazy;
those intimate with the currents beneath the seen;
those willing to stay with you in the discomfort of
mending the broken dreams of the modern world.
Your roots are deep and vast as the cosmos;
wisdom pulses through your veins.
Listen deeply to the knowing in your bones.
You belong here on this land, in this time.
Come closer…You belong.
Everything in this splendorous creation vibrates with the wisdom and creative potential of our origin; how can we possibly “save the earth” without listening and observing the perfection of how She herself has done it for billions of years? Her wisdom dances in every cell of our bodies. We are made of Her. We are sustained by Her. We are devoured by Her. Gaia’s intelligence is right here, beating our hearts in this very moment. Nothing is more essential to our individual fulfillment and our common future than realigning with the root of this intimacy with our Mother, deeply honoring and guarding Her infinite source of guidance, resilience and nourishment.
Earth-based wisdom teachings and Goddess mythology from all over the world guide us to see nature and our bodies as the physical expression of the spirit world. In these traditions, spirituality is not somewhere else, away from Earth. The spiritual world permeates all things in the material world, existing in reciprocity with its physical manifestation.
When surface reality becomes imbalanced like we see on Earth today, rather than scrambling for solutions at the level of the problem, the yogini, healer, shaman, and wise woman expands her view and plants her roots in the spiritual world, where she resources wisdom, healing and vision for the benefit of all.
Take your seat, Sister, in this gathering of dream menders. We will be inspired by ancient Goddess mythology and practices of awakening. We will support each other in aligning our daily actions with our values and love for Mother Earth. In awakening from the numbing cycle of denial, shame and overwhelm, together, we will reclaim a human presence deeply rooted in the magnificent dream of Mother Earth.
The teachings will be delivered in e-mails and audio recordings,
you can participate from your own home, start any time.

“I learned to lead myself ~ from within”
The 21 day Sadhana immersion was a dream come true for me. To feel held as I learned to hold me. To feel listened to as I learned to listen to me. And to be lead, by the voice and inspired words of Chameli, as well as the shared writings of my wise sisters, as I learn to lead myself ~ from within. I have been softly kissed by the Goddess. She is real and presides in this circle. I am home again.
“I am one with the practice. I embodied the practice.”
This precious month of intensive practice has changed me. I experienced every action, movement, meeting, breath, meal, thought, interaction….. as a practice. What a relief, what a bliss! All of me, my being and doing became a practice in total devotion to the Goddess. I am one with the practice. I embodied the practice. It just is, I am no longer separated from it.
Frequently Asked Questions
“I feel this Sadhana will go on and on, deeper and deeper.”
Dear Chameli and Sisters, thank you for this precious sadhana. From all the sadhanas I have joined, it was the deepest, and feel it will go on and on, deeper and deeper. I feel so connected to you and your beautiful sharings of photos, songs and words. Love to you all from the bottom of my heart.
“I have a deeper sense of belonging, stewardship, and devotion.”
I find no language for so much of what has transpired within me during sadhana. It will take time to integrate… I have a deeper sense of belonging, stewardship, and devotion to the shimmering, sacred web of life. I have a more keen understanding of discerning what is relevant and what is not. My heart has cracked wide open. For me, it feels as though sadhana has just begun… Forehead to the floor. I bow.
