Register Now

These nine nights are a sacred time of reflection, destruction and evolution and will be guided by senior staff here at the ranch. Join us for daily pujas with readings from the sacred scripture of the Mother, the Devi Mahatmyam. This is a scripture of grand spiritual transformation – overcoming fear and negative habits, cultivating virtues and realizing the absolute unconditional loving power of the Mother behind the creation, sustenance and destruction of the universe.

The Celebration

Navratri is a very important festival that signifies the progress of a spiritual aspirant. During the spiritual journey, we aspirants pass through three stages of spiritual transformation:

•   Purification (Durga)

•   Cultivation of Virtues (Lakshmi)
•   Dawn of Wisdom (Sarawati)

Special Pujas will take place each evening at 8pm. Please feel free to bring prasad (flowers or sweet dessert) for an offering.

Registration Information

There is no additional course tuition fee for this program. Join us on any day you wish and stay as long as you like. Your accommodation rate includes meals, Satsangs, and Hatha yoga classes which are offered daily.
