Join us on a deep exploration of Shakti, the divine feminine!
In this course, we will explore Shakti in ten of her forms known as the Mahavidyas. Building on my best-selling book, Shakti Rising, we will work with imagery, meditations, lifestyle practices and other exercises to contemplate on these goddesses, and to open to their radiant presence.
Praise for Shakti Rising
Read this book in order to understand how the swirling energies of life have meaning for you, how you may transform their shadow qualities into light qualities, and how to go beyond and see that what you truly are is awareness itself. You will emerge from this reading as you unwittingly entered: free and joyous.
-Jerry Katz, editor of One: Essential Writings on Nonduality, and founder of www.nonduality.org
If you are looking for enlightened words that help you see through the ego self in a gentle, nurturing way, this is it. It’s as if Shakti is speaking through Kavitha. I just finished this book and plan to start reading it again. I highlighted practically the whole book.

Dasha Mahavidya: The ten (dasha) great (maha) goddesses of cosmic wisdom (vidya)
The Mahavidyas are the ten great goddesses of cosmic wisdom. These goddesses become portals to truth, beauty and sweetness in daily life, when we invoke them in specific ways. They show us the path from suffering to joy, from bondage to freedom, and from discontentment to fulfillment.
These great goddesses have been steeped in deep mystery and mysticism, rendering them inaccessible to those who may not be familiar with the tradition. The uniqueness of these goddesses is that they are relevant to every path!
Nondual Tantric Exploration of the Mahavidyas
If you’re interested in forging deeper connections with the Mahavidyas, the Shakti Rising Online Course is for you! Over the course of 12 weeks, you will dive deep into the mystery of your own being with the Mahavidyas as your subjects of worship, nondual self-inquiry, exploration and profound openings.
The goddesses will be explored via imagery, meditations, specific mantras, lifestyle practices and other exercises to open to their radiant presence. Homework assignments will be provided every week, with other helpful resources.
I’m joined on this course by my dear friend, Aparna Khanolkar, who is a gifted Ayurvedic chef, author and lifestyle coach. While I immerse myself in teaching this course, Aparna will take care of all the logistical issues in her characteristic nurturing and life-affirming way.
The course will begin on February 27, 2018. Classes will be held every Tuesday at 8 PM EST (class dates: February 27, March 6, 13, 20, 27, April 10, 17, 24, May 1, 8, 15, 22).
Shakti Rising, available for purchase here. Other reading resources will be provided in the course.
The various contemplations and exercises of this course will be rendered more effective and impactful in the context of a daily, committed meditation practice. If you already have a daily practice, please keep up with it. If not, the free Bliss Meditation Course is highly recommended.
If you are not able to make it to the live video calls – no worries!
The beauty of this online platform is that the recorded live sessions will be posted into the student area immediately after the class for perusal.
You can listen to the lessons as many times as you want – while driving, for instance.
In addition, the course has innumerable other downloadable resources built in, that will become available each week.
The entire course is built on a platform that thrives on discussion and participation with me and others enrolled in it.
