21 Day Tara Sadhana
the Art of Shakti Alchemy

with Chameli Ardagh
& the Global Yogini Circle

April 18 - May 8

Participate from your own home.

Tara is the Great Shapeshifter. She is the capacity within us to liberate and transform stagnation into luminous wisdom, power and creativity. She is the transformation of energy, the brilliant dance of the elements, the Shakti alchemy that creates everything in the universe. We are made of her.
Through practicing with Tara, we remember, relearn, and reclaim our yogini ninja skills: to navigate the challenges and opportunities we face in our feeling world, our relationships, work, and global community with creativity and grace.

Tara teaches us we don't need to exile any part of ourselves in order to be free. Instead of dimming down or diluting our life force by trying to get rid of unwanted energy, we learn to transform energy so we can live wide awake in our bodies, rooted in our wisdom and power.

Tara takes many colors and forms, and each color represents different aspects of awake consciousness. Through her many splendorous expressions of the enlightened feminine, she invites us to embrace the totality of our female incarnation. The spectrum of feelings, contraction and expansion become powerful portals to spiritual awakening.

We will practice with: Green Tara, Fearlessness; White Tara, Compassion and Wisdom; Yellow Tara, Abundance and Prosperity; Black and Blue Tara, Pure Power & Discernment; Red Tara, Erotic Magnetism, and more.

Sadhana is spiritual practice. Spiritual practice is love. For 21 days, offer yourself to the altar of awake living. Through daily practice and short sutras of awakening, reconnect and recommit yourself to a truth sourced in the universal, yet vibrating uniquely through you.

Welcome. We have saved a seat for you.

“Chameli Ardagh is masterful at illuminating the ancient goddess teachings.”

Many of us are inspired by spiritual teachings but to actually embody them, in a daily practice of breathing them in and sweating them out, is a radically different proposition. Chameli Ardagh is masterful at illuminating the ancient goddess teachings in a way that is supremely tangible for modern women, without sacrificing their depth, creating a kind of frequency that sparks awakening.

“I experience a profound level of trust and commitment amongst my sisters that is unlike any other circle.”
With each Sadhana, I experience a profound level of trust and commitment amongst my sisters that is unlike any other circle. I’m  carried into an ancient yet familiar heart wisdom that cracks open a river of love within me and flowers the depth of my creative force in the world.

What is Shakti Sadhana?

Sadhana means spiritual practice.
Shakti is a name for the feminine creative life force of the universe.

Shakti Sadhana is embodied spiritual practice, where the Goddess is the portal to awakening.
In this practice, you consciously engage with both your inner and outer life, your darkness and your light, essentially seeing all of it as part of the unfathomable wholeness you are made of.

Shakti Sadhana is not a seclusive spiritual practice; it is a path that permeates every aspect of our lives. In the Shakti view, we don’t relate to spirit as separate from matter, but as different expressions of the same totality.

The Yogini circle is a circle of conscious women coming together with a shared intention of embodied awakening.  Our online 21 day Sadhana immersions are gatherings of several hundred women from all over the planet. Together, we co-create a resonant field of Shakti, which provides each of us with a powerful transmission of awakening. 
What will I learn in a 21 Day Sadhana?

The basis for all spiritual exploration in the Shakti tradition is the insight that that which we are longing for is who we already are. Thus our practice in Sadhana is not toward a goal of attainment in the future; it is a process of melting, of unraveling the wisdom and beauty already inherent within each woman.

In ancient goddess mythology, we find maps supporting us in this awakening process, and you will be initiated into practices from this alive lineage of women's embodiment that Chameli and the Awakening Women community have explored intensively together for more than 15 years.

How does it work?

The Sadhana begins Wednesday, April 18th. That day you will receive your first email, and you will also be invited into the closed Sadhana online group. Once a day (except for the day of the phone retreats), you will receive a short email with a new practice or a poem that will inspire you and keep you on track.

On Saturday, April 21st, we will meet for the first of three retreats with Chameli. These phone/webcast retreats (your choice) will take place on Saturdays (April 21st & 28th, May 5th) at 10 a.m. Pacific, 1 p.m. Eastern, 19.00 Northern Europe.

The calls will last 90 minutes. The last 30 minutes will be for Q & A. The retreats will be recorded so you can listen to them at any time.

In between the phone retreats, you will practice on your own. You can check in with your Yogini sisters as often as you like in the online Yogini Sadhana circle.

Will I have the time to do sadhana in the midst of a busy life?

You participate as much as is possible for you. To do some practice is better than no practice, and many of the practices are done in the midst of your life, as it is for you.

Once you enter the Sadhana, you enter a mandala of Shakti, of transformation. The practices and teachings will, independent of how much you “do”, unfold in unexpected ways.
Who is it for?

If you long to root yourself in a deeper truth, to live awakening in your daily life, to embody Shakti—the divine creative power—more fully, then this Sadhana is for you.

We will go deep. We meet in a shared dedication to living awake.
If you feel called, with a sense of YES inside…then claim your seat in the circle.

You don’t need to have any previous experience with these teachings. Our focus in the feminine embodiment practice is on direct experience.

YOUR experience is the authority. Always.

“Every sadhana takes me into deeper relationship with the sacred feminine on so many levels.”
I am always blown away by the depth of the practices and the strength of the community that’s created during these online sadhanas. In addition to the sheer joy of learning from someone as inspiring, articulate, genuine and wise as Chameli, every sadhana takes me into deeper relationship with the sacred feminine on so many levels.

"Chameli spoke the wordless things that live on my insides, and I felt fortified by listening each time."

I entered a potent portal of the Great Mother’s embrace and guidance the moment I began the Sadhana. The calls helped me reconnect with my own wisdom and rekindle my passion for my spiritual path. Chameli spoke the wordless things that live on my insides, and I felt fortified by listening each time.

"What a relief, what a bliss!  All of me, my being and doing became a practice in total devotion to the Goddess."

This precious month of intensive practice has changed me.  I experienced every action, movement, meeting, breath, meal, thought, interaction….. as a practice. What a relief, what a bliss!  All of me, my being and doing became a practice in total devotion to the Goddess.  I am one with the practice. I embodied the practice.  It just is, I am no longer separated from it.

“Chameli is a vibrant flower with a sweet aroma that fills me with happiness…her voice, wisdom, presence is pure nectar.”

Being invited into the sacred circle where hundreds of awakening women held a seat for me was deeply moving. I was welcomed with open arms, and drank from the elixir of sisterhood’s love and beauty. This connection infused my practice of exquisite self care with grace and inspiration. Chameli is a vibrant flower with a sweet aroma that fills me with happiness…her voice, wisdom, presence is pure nectar.
