The Goddess Kali is one of the most recognizable deities from the Dharmic tradition to those outside of India. Most Western magical practitioners, Witches, and those interested in non-Christian spirituality have encountered images, stories, and mythologies surrounding the dark goddess Kali. There is, however, a lot of misinformation, confusion, and fears of cultural appropriation that surround approaching the black-skinned Goddess of time and destruction, the great slayer of demons. This class aims to introduce you to the living tradition of Kali's worship and cult as it is practiced both within Hindu communities and with newer worshippers who live outside those traditions.
We will explore the foundational stories of Kali and her lived worship and mysteries, including:
Kali shatters the wicked, slays demons, and holds high the severed head of her enemy...which is our ego. She is the wild and untamed mother of the cremation grounds, the fierce ally of liberation and spiritual enlightenment. Her battle cry shakes the cosmos and breaks the chains of delusion. Join Levi and approach the Great Mother who, even today, is the Supreme Goddess for millions of devotees around the world.
