Join E-RYT 500 Mollie Busby for an immersive 12-week Soulful Sadhana, and dive into the Tantric Teachings of the Goddess through the lens of the yogic tradition, drawing inspiration and wisdom from the book by Sally Kempton
We've all had teachers and coaches encourage us to tap into our "inner goddess," but... what does that even mean?
It's time we get some answers!
In this 11-week course for women, Mollie is honored to guide you through all this and more: What/who are the goddesses of the Yogic tradition, what is their history, how do they relate to our daily life, and how do we work with them as archetypes to invoke transformation in our own lives? This is not a surface-level course with a few stories and some yoga poses... this is a deep dive into using the goddesses for vehicles of transformation, from the inside out. You'll walk away with a deep appreciation for the feminine, and as always, you take with you what resonates, and let go of what does not.
So many questions — and tons of time to dive in! Coursework is all online, self-paced. Our text for the course is Awakening Shakti by Sally Kempton.
Each week, you can dive into a new Sadhana (practice), recorded meditations, alongside a bite-size Satsang (wisdom talk) from Mollie + a workshop of inquiry questions will drop into our online platform, Yoga Hive Connect. You'll be able to access these teachings from wherever you are, and work through them at your own pace. Buying the book (or audible version) is optional, but highly recommended to immerse yourself in the teachings.
You'll gain lifetime access to this course and the materials, so if you can't commit to each week, you'll be able to work through it at your own pace! Need accountability? We have a private social Mighty Network where you can connect with other course participants, ask questions, and ponder the weekly content in good company.
Here's what you get:
12 Weekly Satsangs (Wisdom Talks): You’ll get 12 lessons with Mollie as she breaks down the primary message behind each Goddess discussed in Awakening Shakti, along with her perspective on how we — in today's world — can apply these teachings to our lives, and work with our own divine feminine energy. We call them "weekly" lessons, but of course, you can stretch it to 12 months, or 12 years, if you wish!
12 Sadhanas (Yoga Practices): Because each week features a unique Goddess, you'll get 12 totally unique, easily digestible, yet powerful himalayan kriya yoga sadhanas — one per week — taught by yours truly, customized to flow with the goddess of the week. The teachings may include Kriya, Breathwork, Asana, Mantra and Mudras, and expect to spend 20-30 minutes practicing per week. You can use the weekly recording to practice daily, for the greatest possible results!
12 Kriya Meditations: To dive even deeper beyond the yoga sadhana, I've included the opportunity to use some longer kriyas to access deeper states of integration and alignment with each goddess' energy.
12 Weeks of Inquiry Questions: Teachings are only truly integrated if we bring them into our daily life... and although our weekly yoga practice will be a good compliment, these exercises have been designed to get you thinking, journaling, writing, and taking action in your life — and learning by doing along the way.
12 Bhakti Practices (supportive mantras + mudras): Honestly, the best way I've learned Sanskrit is from teachers who are willing to chant for me, and then I repeat the heck of the mantra in my head until it sticks! When we use mantras over and over and over (often using a mala), we fill in the gaps of our life, and we infuse our subconscious mind with productive, life-affirming vibrations... slowly our destructive thoughts fall to the wayside. Each week, you'll get a new mantra, spoken by me so you can hear it and chant it for yourself, and you have the option of using it as a japa practice as often as you like — or using it with a mudra (hand gesture) that's supportive to the mantra.

I'm Mollie Busby, your humble guide and devoted yogi, teaching to you from above Alaska's Arctic Circle where I live deep in the bush with my husband Sean and eight sled dogs, and we operate our yoga retreat center, Arctic Hive.
Awakening Shakti is ABSOLUTELY one of my favorite books. I was lucky to find this book (and a passion for the goddesses) through one of the inspiring facilitators who led my 200-hour training. After reading just the first few chapters, I was hooked. I've used this book over the years to guide hundreds of yogis and yoga teacher trainees through goddess meditation, invocation, and study, in tandem with my own philosophical studies from the Himalayas and beyond.
This I know for sure: When we create Sadhana (practice) and rituals to invoke goddess energy, we not only become more devoted to our own lives... but we find deeper meaning and power within ourselves. This is NOT about seeking energy that's outside of yourself. When we get right down to it, it's the exact opposite. Everything we need is already within us — the goddess is within us, in her many forms. These teachings simply aid us in calling upon that divine feminine within — so it can be wild and free!
Join this course with an open mind and a willing heart — I look forward to having you there!
Each week includes a 10-30 minute recorded Sadhana, workbook of practices and inquiry questions, and a 30-60 minute lecture with Mollie about the Goddess of the week. You work at your own pace, and many folks who have taken the course have benefitted greatly from jumping around depending on which Goddess is resonating at any given moment.
