Navaratri Festival of the Goddess

October 15, 2023 @ 6:30 pm - October 28, 2023 @ 12:00 pm

Navaratri 2023

Coming Home to the Harmony Centre, a sanctuary for the soul

Navaratri is an ancient annual Goddess festival. It celebrates the inevitable defeat of darkness and dullness, ignorance and pain by the vastness of Divine love and wisdom. In the wonderfully evocative way of the Sages of India, there are stories to delight our hearts and inspire us in our own lives, to bring forth victory of the soul over ego, love over fear and wisdom over ignorance and delusion.

This year we will focus upon the grace of the Triple goddess, Durga, Lakshmi and Saraswati. We will continue the use of the traditional Navadurga or 9 forms of the goddess to invigorate and enlighten our energy centres. We will also contemplate and give consideration to our life as a vehicle for the Divine Mother. How can we be part of the play of grace? What is our calling arising from within? How can we make a difference, right now, exactly as we are, offering what we have, and finding the deep satisfaction that comes when we allow ourselves to believe in the better world that is waiting to materialize? Instead of giving in to feelings of despair and hopelessness about the state of the world, we can merge with the Goddess and access the miraculous.


We will be active in asking the Divine to enter the battlefield and avert Crisis and flashpoints in world affairs. They will not go away without the spiritual people of the world calling to the Divine to intervene and diffuse evil, tyranny and oppression.

Each day during Navaratri there will be sessions where we can be together online and in person at the beautiful Harmony Centre in Cooranbong. There will be opportunities for ceremony and community through the entire 10 days and nine nights of Navaratri, this year our festival extends beyond the annual 9 nights and 10 days to include our Mission Day weekend. Come for a big lift and shift; an intensive awakening. Or, come to what you can. Many sessions will be recorded if you would like to catch any of them later.

This divinely inspired program is open to all, you can expect powerful sacred energy and blessings, discourses and meditations, sacred music and lots of openhearted bliss.

These priceless experiences are offered by donation to help our community embody the spirit of giving, loving and sharing.
