Celebrating The Goddess Presents:
Goddess Night: Releasing 2016 and Calling in 2017
It seems as time speeds up, we all need to slow down.
We need to be conscious to know how to move forward… to build a new inner and outer world that honors who we are capable of becoming.
Join us on the darkest night of the year, where the tide turns and we move back again in the direction of greater light this Winter Solstice. Join us to invoke the light into your life, once again, greater than ever before.
The theme, Letting Go of 2016 and Stepping into 2017 will bring bring you to greater peace within as you put closure on the past and become aware of the freshness of the present.
We will parake in a meditative journey where we will have an opportunity to consciously release 2016. Rishima Bahoodsingh, a classical Indian musician will be sharing live songs while we meditate. See her bio below. Then we will engage in a rose ceremony to beautifully call in our prayers for 2017.
Led by Dr. Alexina Mehta.
All the while we will have live music, tasty treats and time to connect with the lovely ladies in our sweet, warm and welcoming community.
Join us to celebrate the power of the light to move foward into 2017 with Grace, Joy and Hope.
With Love and Light,
PS-If you would like to showcase your business to our community, you can apply for a vendor table. Email: email@example.com.
About Rishima Bhahoodsingh
Drawing upon her unique Indo-Trinidadian roots, Rishima uses music to inspire, motivate, and entertain those around her.
Ray of Light is the direct translation of Rishima’s name from Sanskrit. Rishima created Ray of Light Music to share her knowledge of Indian devotional music with those who would like to learn and experience the deep roots of spirituality in music.
Initially singing spiritual Indian songs rooted in the temple traditions of bhajans, kirtan and other devotional music, she later studied and performed formal music in piano and violin, voice, harmonium, and some Indian percussion. She has worked under the guidance of Elena Steele, polishing her Western repertoire and her Indian vocals with Neeraja Aptikar. She is presently enriching her vocals in North Indian music with the Shankar Mahadevan Adademy (India) and most recently has started learning Dhrupad, a meditative and ancient style of spiritual singing with Ramakant Gundecha. She continues to be influenced by the many talented musicians and teachers surrounding her. She has sung at local cultural and charity events, festivals locally and internationally, weddings, spiritual centres, temples and workshops.
Rishima is a strong believer in the positive impact of music, and has taught music as a teacher both on the Vancouver School Board and internationally through volunteer and private events. She is currently an elementary school teacher in Vancouver working in an inner city school. She holds a Masters of Education in Curriculum and Development as well as a Bachelor of Education in Elementary Education and a Bachelor of Arts in Sociology. In her off time, she volunteers as a coordinator for the Canadian Institute of Sathya Sai Education in Human Values and is the founder of Sol Community Education Society, a society that supports rural education in Northern Peru. She is also the proud mother of 2! Rishima is presently on maternity leave and will be available later this year for workshops, presentations, and classes.
Partial proceeds of all lessons and performances go towards the school she runs as the director of Sol Community Education Society. For more information about the society please go here: https://www.facebook.com/SolCommunityEducation.
