This 7 week Online Course guided by Janice Craig will focus on the Chakra & Deity Mantras, starting September 26th thru November 12th, 2017.  The course will complete live & in person for a Full Moon Weekend Retreat in California.  The retreat is optional, yet highly recommended to fully integrate and embody the teachings.  This 7 week course is for continuing practitioners.  Previous study or practice required.  

Sri Vidya is an ancient Shakta Tantra wisdom school that is focused on goddess worship or Shakti, the feminine principle.  It is the knowledge of the mother goddess Sri Devi or Lalita Tripura Sundari.  She is the cosmic mother who is the Queen of the three worlds (sleeping, dreaming, waking) and is worshipped in the form of a Sri Yantra. The Sri Yantra is divided into nine avaranas which correspond to the yogic energy centers in the human body, called chakras.  The beauty of Sri Devi may attract you but don't be fooled by her delightful appearance. It is the beauty of pure perception and the revelation of one's divine self that we are moving towards. One must do the transformational work. There is no escaping it.

In the tradition of Sri Vidya we worship the deity as self and therefore when we offer mantras or sacred sounds we are offering it to the divine within.  We are asking to heal and transform our pain and suffering into bliss and delight.  To remember that which has been forgotten or is still asleep and unite once again.  We do not deny any part of our self (light or dark).  Instead we embrace the totality of who we are in this body, in this existence and love it into wholeness.  Sri Vidya practitioners understand that individual life is the same as cosmic life, like a hologram; the part is the same as the whole.

I invite you to join me in exploring this supreme science and devotional art.  We will not only dive into sadhana (daily practice) but combined with the philosophy and direct experience we will begin to understand the relationship between deity, chakra, mantra, yantra and tantra.  The teachings are based in lineage.  It is important to understand that this is NOT a teacher training, a certificate program or step by step process on becoming a "goddess".  This is intended to be a pathway for one's spiritual evolution, embodying the vidya (knowledge) through devotional study and practice.  If you are ready to awaken and empower your fullest potential, keep reading!

I was lucky to participate in “Awakening the Inner Deity” with Janice Craig in person over 4 months. Janice created a beautiful, safe, embodied, and connected container in which a group of women could come together to worship the divine feminine. This immersion in the Sri Vidya tradition was a tremendous blessing to me. The mantras, the pujas, and the energies stirred in the group worked together to bring about real personal transformation. I found myself with a more open heart, an abiding worship of Her, and lots of creative juiciness. I highly recommend Janice as an impeccable teacher and embodiment of the divine feminine.

— Wendy Cary Prince BSN, RN
In a time of great change and painful letting go in my life, the mantras brought me tremendous joy, peace and support. Ganesh and the sweet circle held me softly as I surrendered to abrupt reorganization of my life to align with the new potent prayer for love. Janice holds the perfect safe strong container to go deep, to be curious and fall in love with the mystery within. I am forever grateful for this precious Sri Vidya tradition which has found me to expand my consciousness in such a delicious way. Thank you. Bless your generous heart Janice! Jai Ma!
