Are You a Modern Goddess?
A couple of weeks ago I had the pleasure of attending the Modern Goddess™ Circle at AZIAM Yoga in Brentwood, CA.
Every FIRST Friday night AZIAM offers a yoga, dance, and meditation forum for women, followed by feminine magic, spa offerings, healthy drinks, desserts, and delighted conversation.
This gathering was all about empowered women empowering other women. Each session is inspired by an archetypical Goddess figure that participants connect with, discover, and embody.
The theme of this evening was the goddess Kali and was dedicated to Psalm Isadora to both celebrate her life and work while also contemplating her tragic passing last month.
For those of you who may not have known about Psalm, she was a shining light and someone that I very much looked up to as love, sex, and relationships coach.
Jason Wachob, Mind Body Green Founder & CEO, writes that,
“Psalm survived what many people cannot—extreme sexual trauma that lasted much of her childhood. She channeled those horrific experiences into a message of female empowerment through sexuality and tantric principles. She shared this message of empowerment with the world through her articles, classes, and workshops. She even shared her deeply personal and emotional story about overcoming sexual trauma in a powerful talk at our last Revitalize event, which received a standing ovation...she touched the people here at mbg...Sometimes no matter how strong we are and how supportive the community around us is, the darkness finds cracks within the light and wins. This is one of those times.”

After some yoga, dancing to some great tunes (I’m always up for this), Alanna Zabel, owner of AZIAM, led us through a wonderful guided meditation. We closed the evening with wine, yummy organic chocolates, and a discussion of how Kali’s lessons apply to the lives of modern day women in light of Psalm’s passing. It was a fun and incredibly meaningful experience. I’m so grateful I was able to attend.
Kali is the most misunderstood goddess. The name Kali means “She, who is Beyond Time”. Due to her destructive powers she is also known as the “Dark Mother” and she is also considered to be the primordial mass from which all life comes from.
Kali is the warrior of truth and destroyer of ignorance.
It makes sense that Alanna chose the lessons of Kali to help us digest the untimely passing of Psalm Isadora.
Kali shows us that pain, sadness, decay, death, and destruction are not overcome by denying or explaining them away. Rather, they are inevitable parts of life that we must accept in order to be integrated human beings that live life to the fullest.
Therefore, Kali's gift to us is freedom. The freedom to live and revel in the present moment is only obtained after we confront and accept our greatest fear - death.
Rather than protecting us from the way things are, Kali reveals our mortality, which in turn releases us to seize the day. With tough love she compels you to do what is authentic to YOU. Fuck society, the “rules”, and what everyone else thinks you “should” be doing with your life. Today might be your last day. What you going to do with it?
Proceeds from the event went towards The American Foundation for Suicide Prevention.
