With Shambhavi Sarasvati
November 17 – 20
The female deities of Trika Shaivism enact a cascade of becoming in which the wild diversity of life—both sentient and insentient—is shown to be the self-expression of an infinite, living plane of equality.
ABOUT THE TRIPLE GODDESS
What is the real nature of manifest life and how does it arise? What is the relationship between limited relative experience and the absolute? In Trika Shaivism (Kashmir Shaivism), the answer to these questions has everything to do with the Goddess and her creative power.
The force of of manifestation we call Devī often comes in threes. These sets of triple Goddesses form cascades that embody and teach us about how our diverse ordinary experiences arise and how simultaneously every aspect of life shares equally in enlightened essence nature.
In this experiential retreat, we will encounter the triple Goddess in several of her guises and discover her nature and wisdoms within ourselves.
