Upcoming Events

October 4 • 5-6:30pm Pacific / 8-9:30pm Eastern

Celebrate the goddess of enlightened activity on the final day of the autumn Durga Festival.

Duhserra, also known as Vijaya Dashami, is the culminating event of Navratri, the annual celebration of Goddess Durga and her powers of action, protection, and victory.

It is one of the best days of the year to begin something new, reset your intentions, let go of inner obstructions, and consider the ways you wish to grow in the coming year.

In this free practice event to be held on Zoom, we’ll consider our own lives in the light of Durga’s mythology. We’ll consider how her powerful energy plays out in our own psyche. We’ll meditate, practice with an empowered mantra for removing obstacles, and enjoy the company of the sacred feminine in one of her most dynamic expressions!

Diwali, the Festival of Lights, is dedicated to Goddess Lakshmi, the Shakti of love and abundance. In this two and 1/2-hour Zoom workshop we’ll dive into the myths and explore several practices—including mantra, visualization, and inquiry—for discovering your own Lakshmi-consciousness. You’ll receive initiation into one of the powerful Lakshmi mantras. Together, we’ll plant the seeds of beauty, health, and joy for the months to come.

So many of us in this volatile world are living in states of anxiety. For some of us, it appears to be under control. For others, it’s a constant struggle to soothe ourselves. Natural great peace is our foundation. It is part of our deepest nature and therefore always accessible—yet when the world seems to be coming apart, it can be hard to gain access to our own depths of inner quiet. In this program, Sally and wisdom teacher Miranda Macpherson will share some of the secrets of accessing peace in dark times. We’ll look at what you must address within yourself so that you grow roots in this depth. We’ll explore how to live with clarity, wisdom, and equanimity in such fractured times.

Miranda will lecture and lead practices Week 1 (October 25). Sally will lecture and lead practices Week 2 (November 1). They will co-lead Week 3 (November 11).

During this 30 minute interview Sally invites us into her home and shares with us some of her fascinating life story as well as intimate insights into her deeply devotional spiritual path.

Sophisticated Ego
The ego ‘loves ‘ any form of self-improvement. The ego is always trying to get better at its game, and it looks on yoga and meditation as valuable adjuncts to its self-aggrandizing strategy. 

Sally shares with Philip Goldberg yogic wisdom for building resilience, finding meaning in upsets, developing the inner witness, and integrating the energy centers of the mind, heart, and belly.

Sally and Cora Geroux talk about the importance of prayer in a spiritual practice, the evolutionary nature of personal sadhana, finding a teacher, and the “realness” of the gods and goddesses.
