Zoom Online Gathering for Navratri in Honor of Our Inner Durga
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, to reset your intentions, to let go of inner obstructions, and to consider the ways you wish to grow in the coming year.
In this free practice event, 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!
This virtual event will be held on the Zoom platform. A recording will be available to those that register and are unable to participate live or would like to view again.

Abiding in Natural Peace: 3-Part Series
Cost: $60 for Series
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 sponsored by the Sophia Institute, 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.
In this online series, Sally and Miranda (author of Relaxing into Grace) come together to share their wisdom and practice, through meditations and processes that kindle access to your inner world. We’ll illuminate some of the root causes of inner conflict that presently manifests on your path, and open to the grace of self-forgiveness that gives us all a fresh start.
Through teaching, graceful transmission, and precise practices, Miranda and Sally will guide you beyond the constraints and concerns of your ego identity with its inevitable agitation. You can emerge with greater access to the peace that passeth all understanding, not just for your own benefit but so that your presence can radiate peace to your loved ones and community.
In this program, we’ll:
- Explore your access to the state of natural great peace.
- Illuminate what disrupts your peacefulness, and why.
- Take a deeper seat in your meditation practice, accessing “thunderous silence”. Learn to navigate difference without divisiveness.
- Shift from seeking peace to ACCEPTING the peace that always IS.
- Radiate the gift of peace deeper into our fractured world.
(Miranda will lecture and lead practices Week 1. Sally will lecture and lead practices Week 2. They will co-lead Week 3.)
