About the event

The Śākta tradition reveres the Divine Mother as the universal creative power: Śakti. The formless and immeasurable power that is Śakti can only be conceptualized in relation to its activity as creator, sustainer and destroyer of the universe. Consequently, Śakti is Mahādevī, the Great Goddess, worshiped throughout India in various forms, beneficial and fantastic, including the mighty Durgā and Kālī. The immanent aspect of the divine is called Sakti and personified as female divinity, this means that the entire manifest universe is the Goddess, so the Universe is female energy. One of the principle in the classic hatha yoga texts is the concept of the rise of the Goddess Power latent within all human beings, called KUNDALINI-SAKTI, this term and the consequent body physiology is basically Tantrik (kula kundalini, kauliki sakti) because kundalini is the fundamental organizing intelligence of embodied Consciousness. Adi Sakti is the first primal creative energy of the Universe and this creative power is Female.

Some of the traditions of Yoga that have come down to us, such as kundalini Yoga, according to the teachings of Yogi Bajhan, have tried to keep alive the aspect of shaktism, giving the woman, or rather her energy, a central role, but six always speaks of energy, the more initiatory aspects and close to the mystical corporeal tradition have been replaced by a milder version of the woman, as a peaceful being and inclined to obedience; Like the ancient Greek maenads (wild women), tantric yoginis played cymbals, bells and tambourines and danced within a circle of light and a cloud of incense, in a nocturnal "gathering" or "congregation", or "circle" of yoginis or a "gathering of dakinis", for the purpose of "celebrating, officiating rituals, teaching and inspiring each other" .Many yoginis were spiritual teachers, who conferred powers and initiations, and the ruins of their circular open-air temples, in whose niches were statues of dancing women with animal heads, stand today as a reminder of their ecstatic and unconventional rites.

The term "yoga" begins to be used in reference to people around the 5th century BC, for example in the early sermons of the Buddha, who sought a technique to free himself from artificial and cumbersome ideas about the nature of the self, including those relating to the definitions of class, class and gender.  The problem of the predominance of the male figure seems to arise only around the 12th-14th century AD. We will discuss more about the origin of Sakti from a matrilineal philosophical, spiritual and physical approach through the Cult of Mother Goddess and its symbolism. At the end of the discussion we will dedicate our practice and meditation to Adi Sakti, of course this circle is open to everyone, women, men, non-binary and everyone is really welcome.
