Spirited Master Class Series: A Date with Durga with Priya Devi

Date: 15 March 2024
Time: 06:00 – 8:00PM SGT
Live on Zoom


Durga is a prominent goddess in Hinduism, revered as a divine feminine force and a manifestation of the Supreme Goddess, often referred to as Devi or Shakti. The name “Durga” translates to “invincible” or “unreachable” in Sanskrit. She is a warrior goddess, symbolizing the power of the divine feminine to protect and destroy evil forces. She goes by many names, effigies and symbols and her gifts and messages are just as relevant today for women and men as they were over 3000 years ago when She first appeared in ancient hymns and verses.

Join us as Priya guides us on a ‘Date Night with Durga’. We will learn about:

  • The different paths to Durga, and why Priya lives and teaches an ’embodiment path’
  • How to find relatability with Durga through all stages of life
  • Durga’s symbols and correspondences and how to work with them
  • Reflections on how to sense Durga 
  • Q&A.

About Priya

You will often find Priya scribbling away in her notebook, eager to grasp every little detail and take delight in this wondrous human adventure. Her personal struggles with postpartum depression during the pandemic and burnout in the corporate world led her to explore somatic practices and delve into her Indian heritage’s divine feminine deities, such as Ma Kali and Ma Durga. 

This helped her understand her own strength and begin to realise the divinity within her and its ever evolving nature. 

Priya shares her explorations in a relatable and humorous manner, and supports busy individuals who would like to meander gently on a journey of self-discovery, to experience the unveiling of the interconnectedness of all things around us.

Spirited Masterclass Series: White Buffalo Calf Woman with Lakota Elder, Gentle Eagle

Date: 5 November 2023
Time: 7PM SGT
Live on Zoom

This master class will introduce participants to the Sacred Pipe or čhaŋnúŋpa (Lakota term), and their telling (as told to me) of the story of White Buffalo Calf Woman (Ptehiŋčala Ska Wiŋ). 

The Sacred Pipe is an instrument given to the people as a reminder to seek the Spiritual Path through prayer, both alone and in community. The pipe itself represents creation. Loading the pipe with a smoking mixture (Kinnikinnick) as we pray, is a way to imbue our words, thoughts and emotions, which are presented as intentions/prayers, into the physical structure of the plants. As we light and smoke the pipe, our prayers are transmuted from the physical into the spiritual and are sent not only to Creator, but to every part of the universe. 

The Chanupa is a manifestation of the principle of Mitákuye Oyás’iŋ or All My Relations, as it allows us to connect with all that is in the universe!
