The Sword of Durga – A Tantric Practise for Women’s Empowerment
Tantra is a path of liberation, a system of meditation practises for healing and transformation. During this session you will receive an introduction to the Tantric practise of Durga connecting with the feminine source of power, protection and wisdom. Durga means “fortress” and is usually personified as a beautiful golden goddess astride a lion, with qualities both fierce and compassionate. When we approach Durga in meditation practise , we access the energies needed to relieve our fears and difficulties and the strength and inner clarity needed to find our own agency in the situations in which we typically feel disempowered.
This practise helps us to step back from, and even cut through old limiting modes of thinking and feeling, bringing huge focus, awareness and presence to our being. This meditation incorporates core tantric tools of mindfulness, mantra and visualisation.
Zeenat Cameron is an initiate in the Hindu Tantra Shri Vidya tradition and has been authorised to share the practises by her teacher and lineage holder Parvathi Nath.
