OPEN SPACE YOGA, Diamond Head
Durga challenges us on the battlefield of life. She leads us through our difficulties to establish harmony in our mind and hearts. However we must be willing to look at the darkness we to often turn away from.
In this course we will learn the meaning of the different parts that make up the Durga Yantra. The construction (drawing and painting) of the yantra will take us deeper into the feeling of devotion, meditation and sacredness. The ancient stories told in Devi Mahatmyam: The Glory of the Goddess Durga will provide support as we identify our own dark-demons and learn the sacred tools to confront them.
To seal in the energy of Durga and our intentions we will close with a ritual to honor our process and the goddess!
Do I have to be an artist to take this class?
You definitely do not need to define yourself as an artist to attend this workshop. Chanti is familiar with welcoming students of all artistic abilities into her classes. She will show you how to create a yantra using accessible methods and tools. Think of the creation process itself more as a meditation.
