5 month online & In Person - Ganapati sadhana immersion
May to September, 2018

Janice Craig will be leading a focused group of practitioners through the Purascharana for Ganapati.  In Sri Vidya there is a central system of worshipping five deities.  Ganapati, Shyama, Varahi, Lalita and Guru.  Ganapati is the doorway or entrance into Sri Vidya and is a pre-requsite before entering into sadhana with other deities. 

Purascharana means satisfying the deity through the five elements. These elements are offered through Japam, Tarpana, Yantra Puja, Homa and Shanti. As we bring life to the deity we are blessed to receive the darshan of that deity.  If we adore Ganapati, he not only clears obstacles but overcomes them too.  Ganapati lives in the muladhara chakra at the base of the spine where he is the guardian of Kundalini Shakti.  When dormant karma is shaken up from sadhana, it is Ganapati who supports you to cross the hurdles more gracefully.  

We will not only dive into the esoteric meaning and practices of Ganapati but you will also learn practical self care rituals that support one during sadhana.

These teachings are in accordance with the Sri Vidya lineage under Sri Amritananda Natha Saraswati in which Janice has been authorized to transmit.

Online & in person Course Includes

We will meet in person four times every six weeks on Saturday from 10am-9pm.  And every 2 weeks (Tuesdays 7-8pm PST) for online satsang and sadhana review.  Each Saturday is a full transmission giving you all the tools and inspiration needed to dive into each sadhana.

Details for each sadhana are included below

She allows the wisdom and beauty of the goddess to flow through her, and thus, is able to pass on the tremendous potency and luscious opulence of her lineage stream. This coursing of grace through the embodied divine is a rare find. Janice is a hidden treasure and gem. ”

“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!”
