* Intro to Sri Vidya Tantra
Sri Vidya is an ancient school of Goddess-centered Shakti Tantrism. It's focus is on diety, mantra and yantra. Sri Vidya is a system of esoteric discipline combining the elements of the knowledge, devotion and ritual. Practitioners of Sri Vidya see material and spiritual life as two poles of the same thing; physical is but a single continuum with spiritual, God-Goddess indivisible pair. Individual life is the same as cosmic life, like a hologram, the part is the same as the whole.

*Ganapati Mantra Sadhana
The path of Sri Vidya is entered at the root known as mooladhara chakra. Mooladhara chakra is about grounded connection to the earth. It is from the earth that fire ignites and kundalini awakens. Ganapati is the deity who guards the entrace to the cervix and is who we worship to remove obstacles and clear the pathway to awaken our higher intelligence. The mantra for Ganapati will be transmitted and various inner tantra yoga practices will be given to support your sadhana. This sadhana is a pre-requisite for further practice.

What is Sadhana?
Sadhana is a daily spiritual practice that takes us beyond duality. It is an offering to the deity and is taken for a period of time which is typically 40 days. For Ganapati we do 44 days. This commitment will require 15 minutes daily for chanting the mantra 108 times.
