Saraswati Sadhana Self Study
21 Day Sadhana
Expression. Wisdom. Freedom.
With Chameli Ardagh & the Awakening Women Team
Self study course. Start any time.
She is wisdom behind knowledge,
the impulse behind the movements,
the breath within the breath.
She is a quantum universe, exhilarating intelligence.
Mind blowing, crazily free.
While you plow ahead in your well trodden tracks
banging your head against the limited world you call real,
Saraswati is the aspect of consciousness that soars free in the realm of infinite possibilities.
When the wind is just right
bringing with it a scent of new visions,
it is Her soft tap on your shoulder you feel.
Her unmistakable divine whisper tickling your ear;
Hey, sister, may I have this dance?
Saraswati is the Goddess of the arts, of creativity, of sound and of wisdom.
She speaks in colors, in mantras, in the breeze through the leaves.
To the not yet initiated, Saraswati seems hard to grasp,
flying free as the wind not remotely interested in all the limitations we cling to.
She is the quantum field of vibrating potential;
the thought you never thought before;
the expanding vision; the scent of the spontaneous;
the solutions suddenly appearing when you
dare to engage with the vast landscape beyond what you know.
We cannot solve our problems
with the same thinking we used when we created them.
She is mystical alchemy of creation,
the miraculous journey from a subtle inspiration,
to a feeling, to an idea, to an action, to a form.
In practicing with her, you are a bridge from the invisible to the visible.
She is demanding in her unshakeable trust in
your ability to express yourself, just as you are.
She is challenging you to take a chance, in this lifetime,
to trust that you are not a mistake.
That you are whole. That you carry a unique medicine in this world.
You have invested so much energy
in being right about your fundamental flaws–
trying to convince us that your insecurities and wounds
must earn you a rain check from life.
And how about all those ideas about what it means to be self expressed…
the pressure of feeling it is all up to me,
the nagging feeling of not doing enough, not being enough,
the comparisons, the overwhelm and burden of a fictitious perfection…
it can make even the most exuberant of us
oh, so very very tired.
In the meantime–in the midst of the most terrifying vulnerability
of simply being– all creatures and plants and mountains and clouds in the world
are expressing themselves with a momentous gusto.
Everything and everybody so utterly unpretentiously are
celebrating their own significance in the world.
We are all colors on a vast canvas,
a cosmic rhythm,
a dance on an incomprehensible dance floor.
Saraswati has saved a spot for you on her
divine dance card. For the love of it all,
(If you know our sadhanas and want to skip the details about how it all works)
What is Shakti Sadhana?
Sadhana means spiritual practice
Shakti is a name for the feminine creative life force of the universe
Shakti Sadhana is to live awake to She who breathes you through it all.
It is to consciously engage with both your inner and outer life,
your darkness and your light, seeing them essentially as
an unfathomable wholeness you are made of.
Shakti Sadhana is not a seclusive spiritual practice,
it is a path that permeates every aspect of our lives, melting the harsh walls of dualism.
The Yogini circle is a circle of conscious women coming together with a shared intention
of embodied awakening, which creates a garland of grace weaving through the world.
What will I learn in a 21 Day Sadhana?
The effect of the feminine embodiment practices can only be known
through direct experience, it can never fully be described in words,
but here are some pointers:
The practices direct you
:: towards a radical wholeness.
:: towards your deepest commitment, you become a bride of truth.
:: towards a relaxed power.
:: towards a reverence for the pulse of life in your body and in all beings.
:: to a deep place of home which never leaves you no matter how turbulent life shows up.
The practices become your allies in your longing to live as
an embodied instrument of awakening in the world.
Being invited into the sacred circle where
hundreds of awakening women held a seat for me was deeply moving.
I was welcomed with open arms, and drank from the elixir of sisterhood’s love and beauty.
This connection infused my practice of exquisite self care with grace and inspiration.
Chameli is a vibrant flower with a sweet aroma that fills me with happiness…
her voice, wisdom, presence is pure nectar.

I want to thank you from the bottom of my heart
for this fantastic Sadhana immersion.
I love the depth, the clarity and the simplicity in all the practices.
Sometimes I read your daily mails at work and soft tears are flowing.
I am grateful beyond words.

These weeks of the online Goddess Sadhana
have been a sweet returning home for me!
I was warmly welcomed in the timeless circle of yoginis-
and I was introduced into the deep knowledge of being love-
it is stored in every single cell of my body now.
Wherever I am, whenever I long for it,
I can reconnect to this global circle of dedicated women.
Thank you, Chameli, for the beauty and the sacredness
you bring into my life and our lives! I bow to you all.

How does it work?
The day after you pay, your Sadhana will begin.
Once a day you will receive a short e-mail with a new practice
or a poem that will inspire you and keep you on track.
3 of the emails will be a recording of a tele-retreat with Chameli & the global Yogini circle.
Will I have the time to do sadhana in the midst of a busy life?
You participate as much as possible for you. To do some practice is better than no practice,
and many of the practices are done in the midst of your life as it is for you.
Once you enter the Sadhana, you enter a mandala of Shakti, of transformation. The practices
and teachings will, independent of how much you “do”, unfold in unexpected ways.
Who is it for?
You will go deep. You will practice daily.
You will explore the wild realm of the Yogini within.
If you feel called, a sense of YES inside…
then claim your seat in the circle.
And no, you don’t need to have any previous experience with these teachings.
Our focus in the feminine embodiment practice is on direct experience,
YOUR experience is the authority. Always.
It has been amazing to feel at home
and participate in a course of such depth and support.
The daily practices are truly inspiring, the talks from Chameli
powerful and directly speaking to me. I bow to you all… and I want more!

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.
The teleclasses and the massive loving and beautiful supportive energy from Chameli
and all of the divine sisterhood has made a tremendous difference.
Catarina Olvenmark, Business Consultant and Coach
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. Barbara Heile, Artist, www.heileart.com
