Deity Yoga: Patterns of Power and Transformation

San Francisco Bay Area and online

Early Bird prices end July 25, 2015.

Take your yoga to the next level by becoming more intimate with the subtle fundamental energetic patterning of reality. Deity yoga is absolutely central to the original tradition of Tantrik yoga, but is rarely taught in the west. This is your access point to a whole new world of wonderment, flow, and empowerment.

This unprecedented new course taught by two masters of their field will introduce students of yoga to the patterns of conscious energy called “deities”. We will learn how to recognize these patterns of energy in their three primary forms as well as their formless nature. Many practical skills will be taught, especially involving mantras, yantras, mandalas, altar building, and daily life practices to connect with the deity powers as they exist within each one of us. Students will, partway through the course, commit to a specific practice which they will do 30 – 50 times to invoke the energy of a specific deity.

Six-week course includes:

  • learning the iconography, myth, mantra, and yantra of the major deities of the Yogic Tradition
  • local in person gatherings with meditation, kirtan, storytelling, lecture, discussion, and practices (limited spaces)
  • access to the online course website with streaming video and downloadable mp3 audio recordings, pdf readings, and a forum to discuss with the faculty and classmates (local and distance students)
