Like the natural flow of breath, the natural action of Lakshmi Shakti expresses itself in the fine balance of giving and receiving
With Laura Amazzone
Join us for a special Lakshmi Puja (ritual) from a Shri Vidya Tantric lineage performed by Yogini and Priestess, Laura Amazzone, M.A. Lakshmi is a beloved Goddess of Beauty and Abundance. She is a Goddess of Love who brings Harmony, Peace and many other gifts to those who know the secrets of Her worship. While most worship Lakshmi for the material and external blessings She brings, Her closest devotees know that Lakshmi’s greatest gifts are those that She reveals within our hearts.
Laura will give a short teaching and introduction to Lakshmi’s myth, iconography, qualities and history. There is much more to this Goddess who rose from the sea than is often told! Laura will also lead a guided meditation, visualization with mantra, and puja.
Jai Lakshmi Maa!
