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!
