More often than not, shit happens.
Tensions between friends, sickness of a loved one, a global disaster, war and injustice.
The path of Bhakti Yoga is not about escaping from these challenges but instead about meeting them with courage.
There are many real world examples of spiritual leaders who meet injustice, exploitation and oppression with courage and humility – holding powerful people accountable for their actions whilst building bridges with them. Desmond Tutu and Tich Nath Hanh walked this walk working with the ‘enemy’ in compassionate and life changing ways.
In a small way, these gatherings help us to embody the skills that are needed to face the inevitable ups and downs of life.
By bowing down in reverence to a deity, we practice humility.
Humility is liberation.
It’s admitting to ourselves and others that we don’t have all the answers, that we are willing to learn and to listen, willing to be wrong, willing to tolerate difference, willing to challenge each other to be better and humble enough to look in our own hearts.
This gathering, we will invoke the qualities of goddess Maa Saraswati, who is known to bring order out of chaos and has a calming and centring personality.
The name Saraswati stems from the Sanskrit root “saras,” which means “that which is fluid.”
Saraswati helps us to channel the qualities of curiosity, creativity and openness.
These gatherings are meaningless without you!
Together, we bring out the best in ourselves and each other through simple practices and community living.
Please feel welcome to join us….
