Wisdom shines forth, O Goddess, in a person whose impurities have dwindled through past austerities, charity, sacrifices, pilgrimages, recitation and vows
     –    Kulanarva Tantra

The MahaVidyas, or Ten Wisdom goddesses, emerge from the Tantric spiritual tradition with an emphasis on embodied practice. 

These goddesses represent a wide variety of concepts as experienced through the lens of the feminine Divine. 

The approaches are characterized by a rich array of rituals, placing particular focus on:

  • Visualization
  • Mantra Recitation
  • Meditation (dhyana)
During this course, students will join together for both philosophy lecture and mantra practice (sadhana), we will explore the development of the tradition and develop an integrative understanding of key concepts such as diksha (initiation), yantra (sacred diagrams), mantra, and shakti.


Please note: There will be no class on May 18th.
