The Mother Practice as a 10 month Practice Using the Sacred Movement Ritual we will unfold the mysteries hidden within the movement expressions. Each movement is the voice of another Wisdom Mother. We welcome one Wisdom Mother at a time on ten consecutive cycles of the New Moon.
Sitting meditation, expressive movement practices, creativity, spiritual philosophy and devotion to God as Mother, will all be tools to deepen understanding.
The Ritual involves experiencing the effect of outer and inner movement in the context of connecting with the Divine Mother. You will learn to feel & communicate the deeper understanding that comes from this. You will learn how spontaneous movements are a language from your inner truth.
Each movement phrase is a spiritual lesson and contemplation. We will learn to recognize Her wisdom flowing through our body and consciousness as energy, insight and movement. This is an advanced course on the inner aspects of Yoga and how consciousness expresses itself through the physical reality.
"Each movement of the ritual holds a key that unlocks the door of another beautiful level of consciousness"
Journeying up the mountain with the tantric goddesses
An initiation into the 10 cosmic powers

Ruth reads the book to the students
Journeying up the Mountain is the story of the incarnate soul traveling back to God, the Source. It is written through metaphors in a casual, unassuming, even playful way. It is based on devotion to the Divine Mother and specifically that of Durga. Devotion means we step into the Mother’s love, into Her heart, where we feel alive. She is all around us and moving through us. We are stepping into aliveness itself. Durga’s purpose is to conquer the mind, our sense of separateness, by finding 10 wisdom forms, goddesses, cosmic powers, inside herself. She reveals them to her students, in this case, one chapter at a time through daily activities, initiations, and meditations. The Beings assist our every moment, influencing and refining our soul’s progression. In each chapter the environment shifts according to the influence of the different Mother or goddess that is present, presiding over the environment. Historically, Indian masters used an internal path of meditation as the research method, a path to go back to God to understand the purpose of life, the highest meaning of being incarnated. In so doing, they heal or dissolve the karma (our human conditioning influencing the mind) which keeps the soul on the wheel of birth and death. Once the karma is resolved, the mind healed, the soul can be released from this cycle and merge back to God. The journey up the mountain is metaphorical. We are traveling the mountain of our incarnation back to God where all answers Are. In so doing we elevate this life and future lifetimes (if any) to the highest version of an incarnate being, one that is free, full of the Light, and at peace with all that is. The story is the Path to Liberation, enlightenment, Self Realization, Moksha, merging with the One. It is the path of the immortal being. Mystics from all traditions search for this One as their Source for the illumination of their Soul. As we do it for ourselves we do it for the All, as we are not separate.
