Solstice Sadhana Virtual Retreat
40 Days of Contemplative Practice, Spiritual Guidance, & Healing Dream-Work
“Shower your blessings, O Lord. I offer my ego as an oblation.”
Satguru Sant Keshavada, ‘Lord Ganesha’
There are a wide variety of contemplative methods you can explore within the Vedic tradition.
During this winter solstice’s celebration of light, we’ll connect to the many ways that sadhana can enrich our lives with grace & purpose.
Our particular emphasis this year at Vidya Institute will be a deep focus on the stories, mantras, and spiritual lessons of Ganesha.
The central blessings of Ganesha are:
The Removal Of Obstacles
The Muladhara Chakra (The Root & Foundation Of The Body)
Sattvification of Your Buddhi (Purifying Spiritual Awareness, Intellect, & Judgement)
Consistent & Disciplined Progression Through The Stages Of Spiritual Attainment
Gitte will lead traditional prayers and mantras of different categories to Ganesh in a call-and-response format and provide wisdom teachings and rich story-telling from oral teachings on Ganesh. We will look at the various shaktis related to Ganesh, the symbolism of his different objects.
Additionally, one of the weekly sessions will be devoted to Maha Lakshmi, as one of the 10 mahavidyas.
Exploring the hidden meanings of Athārgala Stotram and Atha Tantroktaṃ Devī Sūktam will be emphasized during these sessions. And Gitte will teach on the virtues in these mantras, weaving in the relevant links to Patanjali’s Yoga Sutras, your life, and your practice itself.
Please note enrollment will be limited to 60 for the Solstice Sadhana Retreat General Enrollment group.
Enrollment Closes On December 20, 2021
