Riding the Tiger: Women's Wisdom Village - Sun. 8/23 4:30 pm PT
About the Event
Is all the daily multitasking leaving you overwhelmed? A goddess of multitasking, the many-armed Durga carries talismans and weapons of strength and power in each of her hands.
Durga rides her Tiger through will Determination
Her mastery of Will and Determination and her Freedom from Fear give her the power to Ride the Tiger of change. She sees through her three eyes named Desire, Knowledge, and Action.
One embodiment of Durga is as the great destroyer. She makes a clean sweep of the disruptive forces that threaten peace and prosperity and that encourage evil. She is also the great benevolent and protective mother, who creates and nurtures. And, she is the fierce mother who unleashes her wrath to protect and liberate the oppressed.
In the Hindu pantheon, Durga is one manifestation of Shakti, the Mahadevi, or the Great Goddess from which all goddesses manifest. Shakti is divine cosmic energy, the feminine creative force behind all life, creation, and dynamic energy.
Durga is an archetype that we can access to marshal all of our strength, intelligence, passion, and determination in order to Ride the Tiger of change. She helps us to make a clean sweep in our lives with the powers of our anger, wrath, knowledge, intelligence, intuition, love, and protection.
What can we learn from the time we are living through? Where is our power, and how should we wield it? Join me to explore the ancient hopeful truths and power that lives within the myths of the universal experience of being a woman.
Dr. A. is a cultural mythologist and women's coach. Join her in weekly inspirational conversations, held online, about the big picture of being a woman in these times.
In each conversation, as women have done for millennia, we will gather at the well (ours will be virtual) to support each other and to find wisdom, insight, and clarity in uncertain times.
Enter the circle and:
- Experience new ways of understanding what we are going through today, from the wisdom in ancient myths and stories.
- Explore the legacy of wisdom from the profound universal experiences of being women.
- Broaden and deepen our thinking about our outer and inner worlds.
- Create a deeper connection to ourselves and to each other.
These weeks of social distancing and unrest can create more than stress and worry. We can emerge from this uncertain time with a story to tell about ourselves and our world. We can create a new vision for our lives, our families, our communities, and our world.
