Dakini's Mirror
Dakini's Mirror

In non-dual Tantric traditions understanding the nature of our minds is essential on a path of awakening, self-realization, & liberation. The Dakini’s Mirror is a sacred Mandala that helps us to re-cognize our emotional patterns by working within 5 fields of energies/Consciousness (the Dakinis) & their elemental families. This mandalic “map” assists us in understanding & transforming the chain of obstructed and liberated emotional reactions. Contact us for more info

Ganesha Sadhana
Ganesha Sadhana

As most of us who love Shakta and other Tantric and Yogic traditions know, Ganesha is an elephant-headed God of Wisdom who is invoked to remove obstacles. As the God of Karma and Dharma, He also brings obstacles to reroute us when we have strayed from our path. Ganesha is invoked at the beginning of any ritual or undertaking. He is the one who opens the gates-- both external and internal ones!
