Be Woman Circle Facilitator Course dedicated to Sarasvati Devi- Education on the Sacred Feminine
About This Event
Be Woman Project have put this women’s circle facilitator training together to create a safe space to be, to heal, and to learn. You will get all the tools and confidence to embody the sacred feminine, as well as an inspiration for others in the spirit of woman and sisterhood.
In this course we will get to know the meaning of Devi, the sacred feminine, according to the Vedic Tradition & Vision. Devi is she who is self shining, love, and has all power and knowledge. She is trustworthy, non judgmental and compassionate towards all beings. It is said that there is only Devi, all that is here, is sacred.
In reality there is only one non dual being that appears as many forms, names and functions. Sarasvati, is the painter, the painting & the painted. What a beautiful contemplation. As it appears, we women appear as many forms and shapes, coming from different backgrounds, cultures and traditions. In this module we overcome those dividing factors and we discover that we have so much in common.
We are a conscious being that wants love, wants nourishment, wants freedom from rivalry, jealousy, competition, the sense of unworthiness. We want to be free from pain and as long as we focus on the differences we will be in pain. The solution is to focus on the truth, that you and I are from one and the same source, love. That means you and I are in reality one and the same being. A being that is in its essence loving and caring, filled with jewels and magic. We discover that the source of love, security and happiness we seek in life, is myself and that I have all the ingredients that are required in order to live a fulfilling and content life.
“A great value to me is to let the voice be heard, to listen and be listened to. Offer our braveness. Take time, let our heart feel other women’s heart. Feel the pain, feel the love, just feel. Sisterhood for me; is that we relate and share. Opposite from comparison, and competitions, instead showing each other all the love we are capable of. Be a woman made me recognise the big gift and what healing it gives to listen and to be listened to." AnnaStina Yoga Teacher and participants to Be Woman Sarasvati Training 2019
ScheduleDuring this course you will learn how to guide women's circles. Women’s circles are powerful and healing. When women come together, magic happens, nourishment takes place, and healing is happening. Listening to each other's stories, sharing each other's joys, and moments of difficulties empower women and create a sacred bond. You will learn how to set up a sacred space for women to come together, to heal, grow, and come to find ourselves.
You will share the importance of having an altar, the foundations, the basics, and the key ingredients to successfully hold a circle for women. The same tools can also be applied for circles for men and women. Yet primarily, you will be focusing on the sacred feminine by starting with yourselves. It is important to commit to one's own emotional, spiritual, and cognitive growth in order to be equipped and support others in their journey.
Women have come together for eons to pray for their families and the world’s well being. In the woman’s heart, the whole world is contained, worthy to discover and cherish. The light of knowledge clears up the darkness of ignorance and removes all pain and suffering. It is the light that represents Sarasvati, she who is knowledgeable.
Every day there will be classes on the sacred feminine, sacred cycles, sacred sexuality, morning rituals and practices, mantras, sacred chants and songs, guided meditations, yoga, and dance. As well as pelvic floor health, introduction to yoni egg practices, stress and hormonal/fertility problems, sharings around pregnancy, and sexuality after having given birth. As well as the important aspects of the art of listening and communication.
