Myth, Scriptures & Ancient Traditions
The Indian culture offers us a unique window into the worship of goddesses such as Devi, Shakti, Maa, Amma, all serving as names of the Divine Mother, an ancient tradition addressing cosmic energy through worldly form. She is known as the source of creation and the combined energy of the three forces of creation, preservation and destruction, also known as Trinity. For thousands of years in India various sacred texts, shlokas, mantras, meditation, chants and stories have been written to describe the beauty, power and purity of this divine force. And is the only country in the world where her worship and triumph still continues.
These traits represent the various roles women have played since time immemorial as mother, daughter, wife, sister, friend, lover that are mentioned in some of the greatest epics of India. Such ancient practices hold a practical meaning that describes the importance of energy, sound and vibration as part of our physical, mental and spiritual existences in this world.
Divine Feminine Story
The Divine Feminine course is designed uniquely by the founder of Himalayan Yoga Bliss, Yogini Sonam. The course is the product of a rich and intricate life journey that brought Sonam to craft a program serving women who seek to rediscover their potential and empower their lives further. She says once a woman knows her true potential as Shakti, she then becomes the Light that no darkness can conquer.
Growing up in the heart of the Himalayas, Sonam lived near a big Durga Shakti temple and participated in annual rituals and celebration of the goddesses, forming experiences that served as a stepping stone towards her devotion and love for Mahashakti. Her mother, a devotee of the goddesses and a dedicated Bhakti Yogi herself, introduced her to the importance of daily mantras, chants, fasting rituals and the traditional worship of the Divine Feminine. Early on, these celebrations mostly served as a ritual for Sonam, until she fully comprehended the importance of these practices along with the metaphorical value of the various facets of the Divine Feminine, existing within every woman and its significance in the betterment of society today.
A mature, stable feminine will help balance family issues related to identity, role, power, cultural conditioning, perceptions, repressed sexuality and gender resistance that’s prevalent within every culture, therefore leading to a collective change in the modern world.
As a dedicated devotee of the goddess, a sincere meditator and a rigorous student of yoga, Sonam has decided to bring these ancient practices in a simple, practical form. Through her powerful meditative techniques, this course comes to serve women seeking to rediscover their inner strength, ignite their feminine energy and its potential, and ultimately, lead a peaceful and purposeful life.
