About this Course

Welcome to the Shakti Rising Online Study Course! 

In this 12-week course, we will dive into radical self-discovery through the path of Shakti. Specifically, we will explore the ten great forms of Shakti known as the Mahavidyas (Maha = great, Vidya = knowledge or wisdom). These ten goddesses will become portals of deep exploration of our own divine nature. 

Some of the topics we will explore include:

  • Shakti
  • Shiva
  • Non-duality
  • Yamas and niyamas (ethical codes) and why they are important
  • Tantra
  • Yoga
  • Vedanta
  • The Direct Path
  • Bhakti, jnana and karma yogas
  • Granthis, chakras, nadis
  • Self-realization vs. self-improvement
  • Spiritual bypassing

This course is meant to be experiential and practical, where our awakening is embodied and lived through in daily life. Every week, we will meet via video conferencing. This recording will become available shortly after the class. Homework material will be available for each week after the live class. An ongoing built-in discussion forum is available for interaction with other students and group learning. 

Required reading: Shakti Rising: Embracing Shadow and Light on the Goddess Path to Wholeness

Additional resources (videos, blogs, books) will be recommended as we go along.

This course is for you if you have a burning desire to learn more about Shakti in her Dasha Mahavidya forms, about the nondual tantric path of awakening, and to dive into self-discovery without reservation!
