Yoni Shakti: Bhairavi Self Anointing Ritual

This forty minute yoga nidra was created to dignify and honour the experiences of menopause as a powerful spiritual initiation. The central experience of the self-anointing is rooted in a ritual meditation that was part of the spirituality module of Alexandra Pope's Women's Leadership Apprenticeship 2012. The experience remained vividly with me and returned as the perfect nidra practice when I was writing the menopause chapter of Yoni Shakti. This is a recording of the practice described on page 451-2 of Yoni Shakti, and it has been valued not only by the menopausal and perimenopausal women with whom I have shared it but also by younger women seeking to affirm self-confidence and trust in their own power.

We have chosen to offer these audio recordings freely. We do this because we know yoga nidra to be a valuable practice which we want to share widely. It does, however take a fair bit of time and effort to upload the recordings and maintain this site so you can use it.

If you feel you have benefitted from what you have heard or learnt from this site then please do consider making a contribution towards the maintenance and upkeep of the site. We’d appreciate that, and it would help to ensure we can continue to offer this service freely.

Thank you.
