Goddess Kali

 

The Goddess Kali

The Mythology

Kali (pronounced kah'lee), the Hindu triple Goddess of creation, preservation, and destruction is the animating force of Shiva. In many eastern mythologies it is recognized that destruction or letting go of things is necessary to give space for new creation. In that sense destruction is as much part of the divine as creation.

Kali has a dark image about her. But mostly she is a gentle loving goddess. Once a year she unleashes her power in bringing out that dark side of facing fears and giving courage to let go to create space for new life to unfold.

The Lessons of this Goddess

Kali has begun her dance in your life to tell you it is time to face your fears. All that is lurking ominously, either buried deep in your inner darkness or close by, needs to be stared in the eye and brought into the light of consciousness. Are your fears serving you by warning you about dangerous places, things, or people? Or do your fears prevent you from dancing your dance, living your life, creating with Creation? It’s human nature to resist change, fear the unknown. Kali teaches us that accepting change, the fear of the unknown, grieving of lost past, the pain and sadness of letting go is sometimes necessary to continue our path of a fulfilling life.

Wholeness is nurtured when you reclaim the pieces of yourself that you've given over to fear. Most fears are formless. By naming and witnessing the fear, you gain power.Wholeness is created when you learn to acknowledge your fears and walk through them.

Our Mission

We at KaliYoga believe that Yoga can be a powerful tool to step out of your comfort zone, go to that edge where we face our limitations, where our best efforts meet face to face with our deepest fears.

Yoga offers techniques to focus on the present moment. Only with a keen awareness of the Here and Now we can overcome fears, retrain old habits and with that live our lives more fully.

We recognize that people come from different places on their path to a healthier, more fulfilled life. The beauty of Yoga is that it offers techniques for everyone – no matter what age, fitness level, health or spiritual awakening we are, there is a place to start that journey.


As the very first Yoga Sutra states “Here and now start the teaching of Yoga.”
We believe KaliYoga to be such a place.
