Our Next Presenter

Deborah Payne, Certified Anusara Teacher, invites us to contemplate what really matters.

Samudra Shakti Online
Sunday, December 11, 2022
USA Time Zones: 8 p.m. Eastern, 7 p.m. Central, 6 p.m. Mountain, 5 p.m. Pacific
Presenter: Deborah Payne, Certified Anusara Teacher
Topic: Nitya Goddesses – 16 Moon Phase Meditations, Mantras and Yantras

The Universe is vast! How do we increase the current of Grace that flows between our individual selves and the limitless?

The Nitya Goddess’ are the eternal guardians whose rhythmic teachings gift us the discovery and rediscovery of our highest selves through connection with that constant celestial touchstone, The Moon. From the New Moon to

the Full Moon, The Nitya Goddesses represent an aspect of each Moon phase and ask increasingly compelling questions:

  • How can we live more consciously?

  • Who and what truly matters? 

  • What is our purpose and how can we fulfill it? 

The Moon is our ever-present cosmic midline, a point of reference to align the individual within the immensity. Rather than contemplating the question of how the Goddesses show up for us, as Tantric practitioners we learn to engage in relationship.

The Nitya Goddess are Shakti, ever-changing and evolving, they teach us the language of this relationship. Through Yantra and Mantra practices, we meditate with each Nitya, contemplate their stories while discovering our own.

Deb Payne, Certified Anusara Teacher, will introduce you to the Nitya Goddesses, along with their Yantras and Mantras, through the beautiful artwork and interpretation by her friend, longtime Anusara practitioner, gifted artist and writer, Nancy Dales.

We’ll make the connection that our personal individual growth leads to our expanded capacity to serve others. Together, we’ll explore ideas to find Grace, beauty, and strength as we enjoy community and collaboration.

Deb is an Anusara Certified teacher in Arizona. She was one of the early participants in the birth of the Anusara School of Hatha Yoga and was integral to the school operations until 2017. She continued work on publishing the Anusara manual revisions and Therapeutics manual before “retiring”.  Deb is also proud to be part of the Samudra Shakti live event planning team.
