In this class, we'll show you how to work with goddess archetypes to help liberate your own powers of transformation (Kali), inspiration (Saraswati), and love (Lalita). We'll learn which goddesses we resonate with and discover how to bring a true deity field into our practice and our life. And we'll tune ourselves in to how the goddesses show up in our personality, as well as in our own subtle energy. Awaken and unfold your relationship to the sacred feminine energy within you--whether you are in a male or female body!
