FEAR OF THE FEMININE ?
The natural year comes to an end as the solstice calls with her longest night of dominion, echoing back once again in the eternal cycles that reverberate in the realms of time and space.
We will meet on the last full Moon of the year for a night of sacred feminine ritual.
Meeting at the usual time on her annual full Moon Jayanti night, we will undertake the ritual of Kali Bhairavi.
Kali Bhairavi is the Mahavidya Goddess
who rules the funeral pyre & the grave.
This full Moon night
aligns through astral and lunar force
to the energies of Kali Bhairavi.
She is the fearsome feminine face of Shakti amongst the ten faces of the Dashma Mahavidya Goddesses.
Dashma means the ten mothers, and Mahavidya means ‘great wisdom’. Together they are “the ten great wisdom-keepers of femininity”.
In the Tantric calendar, each Mahavidya Goddess has her Jayanti, which can be translated as birthday or commemoration. Each Jayanti date corresponds with Lunar tides and astral forces that support the energy of the Goddesses in question.
SHE is the Shakti that brings us to look at our death in a very
femininely tangible way. Hers is a ritual of blood, bone and body.
On this nights ritual we will attempt to face the great adventure of death.
Kali Bhairavi is a unfathomable force. She be Mistress of a Moon most mystic… perhaps unknown?
She it be who spooks even the spooks. She has dominion over the dark secrets of death, and thus her ritual is nestled in the dark breast of the years end.
Straddling corpse and ghost in the cremation fires of conclusion, Kali Bhairavi tells us of the secrets of finality. Her deeper teaching is to show us the power of living every act as if it be our last.
That which repels us
has power over us;
yet, if we face it,
it can give us devotion.
Having a sense of finality to each and every breath, brings the power of Shakti to our existence.
The sobriety that comes from living each moment to completion is something to ponder upon…
Ponder upon it, if you will.
Power might all too easily be equated with the extroverted display of the active pole of energy.
Feminine power – perhaps to be rediscovered in both an individual and collective way, plays within different realms to the all-too-familiar realms and structures of linear living.
This ritual will be based around the different Bhairavi Mudras, these are a series of 7 facial expressions that stimulate the 7 chakras. The 3 Bija Mantras of Bhairavi that open and melt the doors to the three worlds of earthly, conscious and unconscious life will be chanted within a sequence of Asan that move us into her timeless dimension.
Issues or maladies pertaining to fear, femininity, fear of femininity, ghosts, death and psychic taboos, amongst others, will be addressed on this ritual night.
