The Program

The Devi Training offers 3 modules, each one of them dedicated to one of the goddesses from the Vedic Tradition. Sarasvati, the goddess of knowledge, Laksmi & Lalita the goddess of abundance & sacred beauty and Durga, the goddess of integrity, also known as the peaceful warrior, healer & mentor.

 

We wanted to offer this retreat so that women can have a glimpse into the longer trainings that are being held throughout the year as well as for our friends & sisters around to the globe to gather in the spirit of the sacred feminine and our bond as sisters.

 

A time to resolve in timelessness, pampering each other and sharing with each other our stories of joy, of love, of loss, of life. While bathing in the profound teachings of Mother Veda that makes us see, that we are whole and complete as we are. The source of love is not outside of myself, it is myself.

 A place to breathe

This retreat is here to bring women from all backgrounds together: offering support, tools & teachings that have its roots in the Vedic Tradition.

In the Vedic Vision, all that is here, is sacred. All that is here, is my infinite expression. The world is my heart. I am the whole, nothing is away from me. There might be many different forms, different ornaments yet they are all sustained by one and the same gold. Vedanta says you are that gold.

Discovering that I am the gold, frees my heart from pain, as I stop comparing myself with other women and I discover that what I want, is what I am. I am whole, I am acceptable, I am lovable. I am the source of love, security & happiness. That is sacred beauty to me.

The secret lies in accepting what was, embracing what is, loving what comes, and giving what we want and ultimately knowing what matters and what doesn’t, what we can change and what we cannot change.

In that understanding we can heal, grow and mature. Eventually we can embody what we know and share with others who also want to be free strong and brave women.

Be Woman Retreat is for you, for any woman who wants to embody what it is to Be a Woman, be herself and fearlessly embody all her sides, meet the world with an open, non judgmental, compassionate, caring, and loving heart, mirroring back love and validation. This retreat can help to find new inspiration for life and tools on how to lead and hold ones own Women’s Circle.

Testimonials

“Before I came to the devi retreat in Sweden, I had never heard of Vedic tradition. I went into it with an open mind and 7 days later I came out with 1000 times more love for myself, my fellow devi’s and nature. I already clicked with the idea that you yourself are all that you need a few years ago, but after the retreat it finally settled in my head. I know now that that is true, that I am beautiful and perfect no matter what, and I deserve the best. Such a powerful message I think everybody should learn. I am so thankful for this experience. Thank you Sharada, Pia and Ananya.”

– Yorien

“I want to take the time to thank you for the beautiful goddess retreat you held this summer in Sweden. It was magical and EXACTLY what I needed. It was life changing!! Before the retreat I was so lost and exhausted. You made me feel welcome, accepted and loved. I got to connect with my spirituality through your guidance. I have great respect for your knowledge but even more for how well you gave us theory and practice at our level, to make us curious and feel safe. You are a true Devi and you bring out the devis in everyone you meet. I am forever grateful that I got to meet you and participate in the devi retreat. When I got home, my partner saw how I had changed in a positive way. And we both recognized how important it is for me to have an altar, a sacred space for me to meditate. So he built a beautiful shelf where I could have my privacy and I meditate there every day. I am sending you lots of love and gratitude from the bottom of my heart!”

Sharada for Be Woman Project

“Know Woman. Be Woman. All Women. Nature. Nurture. Me.”

It started with an English mantra; a prayer that has given birth to ‘Be Woman Project”. An initiative to inspire women from all backgrounds, different nations, cultures and languages.

Sharada’s passion and love for the sacred feminine to heal, brought her to lead Devi Circles which are Women’s circles.

Sacred gatherings for women that offer a safe non-judgmental space to heal, find self-acceptance, compassion, courage and empowerment. The circle offers support to overcome competition, jealousy, fears, insecurities and the sense of unworthiness through knowledge, sharing and devotional practices.

Be Woman Project is her vision to inspire as many women as possible to rediscover the value of being a woman and having a sisterhood.

Through sacred collaborations, reaching out events, education and heart sharings we find healing, nourishment, strength, support and everything we need in order to mature and embody the love that we are essentially.

The secret of Devi, ‘the way of the sacred feminine,’ has been a deep discovery for Sharada. Learning many Sanskrit Devi Mantras with her revered teacher, brought her closer to understanding the inner meaning of the Goddesses of the Vedic Tradition. Sharada has been studying in India and Bali for many years. She is a devoted student and teacher of Vedanta, Puja’s (Vedic Rituals), Vedic Chanting, Sanskrit & Guided Meditation. Today she shares the priceless jewels, that have blessed her life so profoundly, whole heartedly with many seekers in Asia, Europe & Online.

A note from Sharada: If a woman’s heart can heal, it heals the whole universe… because she is the whole universe. Women have shared and come together for times immemorial; gathered to pray, to sing, to worship, to support, to heal, to nourish, to grow together. Now we come together to inquire into the nature of I and embark on the profound journey towards Self Acceptance and the discovery of Love.
