Call of Kali
A retreat to India
28 January-8 February 2021 |Rishikesh, India
This retreat to India is for womxn who are hearing the call (even just a whisper at the door) of Sisterhood.
For 11 nights/days, we will connect to each other, ourselves, our host country/people through ceremonies and rituals that include: holistic yoga practices (asana, meditation, etc), time in nature, song, dance, play, and pilgrimage.
But, who is Kali and why is she calling?! Kali one embodiment of the Divine Feminine in the Yogic tradition. Many know her as the ferocious, demon slaying Goddess with blood dripping from her tongue. And she is this...this warrior, this slayer of that does not serve us.
She is also the ultimate nurturer and life giver. She is Ma, the Mother, the Divine.
And she is calling us Sisters back to what we once knew...that our strength is soft and flowing and powerful and needed. Back to each other to love and support one another in our own demon slaying and truth nurturing. This awakening to the Divine Feminine, to the Mother, to that energy and love that exists within each of us is critically important and needed.
So, my Sisters, do you hear the call? Come home with us to our Beloved Mother India, Ganga Ma, each other and yourself. Re-awaken, rediscover, reconnect. We’ll be there for you.
A beautiful guest house a short drive yet seemingly a million miles out of town and right on the bank of Ganga Ma, the sacred river Ganga will be our home, our container. A falling stream runs adjacent to the house and will lull us to sleep at night. Rooms have heaters in case it's cool at night and AC if it's hot during the day. Each ensuite room is double occupancy with hot water showers. This guest house is comfortable, cozy, and all ours while we are there. The staff is as nurturing as the land and the food is equally delicious and nourishing vegetarian, Indian cuisine.
We eat on an open air deck among the leaves of the jungle trees and practice in a yoga shala with a view of Ganga through those same trees. The guesthouse is an extension of the land it's on...it is a special, womb-like, high vibration place.

Jess and Victoria met while dancing on Diwali at their mutually favorite cafe in Rishikesh. They did their prenatal yoga teacher training together starting later that day and have since shared belly laughs, music, song, tears, play, love. and Sisterhood. Their deep connection is ancient and nurtured in this lifetime by their shared practices of ceremony, yoga, kirtan...and being total nerdy goofballs together. They can't wait to share their Beloved India and Ganga, as well as the practices and rituals they hold dear, with you!
