Yogini Wisdom

Each and every one of us will experience times when things fall apart; times when we lose a loved one, lose a relationship, job or house. These are times when we are forced to let go of the way things used to be. The identities we were used to no longer apply, and we don’t yet know what the new will be. We are thrown into a reality that is not predictable or obvious any more.

We call these times of crisis, times of transition. It can be immensely frightening to face the great unknown, but as yoginis—as students on the Goddess path—we lean into the opening available to us when things fall apart. We learn to harvest the freedom waiting behind the masks of who we have taken ourselves to be.
