Celebrating Durga, Great Mother of Graceful Transformation
October 15 @ 7:30 PM - 10:00 PM AEDT
Celebrating Durga, Great Mother of Graceful Transformation
The HEART Collective welcomes you to celebrate Kali-Durga, the Great Mother of graceful transformation, of transmuting the heaviest dross into golden radiance.
This is a FREE online community ritual container, facilitated in service of the divine heart in all.
Friday October 15th here in Australia is the final night of Navaratri in Hindu mythology, the 9 nights dedicated to honouring the Goddess, the sacred feminine. Durga’s grandeur is globally renowned and only one face of the many she wears across cultures and places. Durga is available to all.
Durga is the heart of transformation, the essence of benevolent grace, the redemptive compassion called upon, and the loving transmutation bestowed by the divine creator within its created creatures: us. Durga knows us as Her Self-Same-Divine, as always already whole and complete, but playing in the field of separation for the sake of exploring Self and Other, the wonder of unfolding our distinct yet connected lives.
Together you’ll be guided to use a range of simple sounds, breaths, visualisations, statements and intentions to honour, invoke and embody the grace of Durga, your own divine compassion. It is a space for offering up what hasn’t been digested in your system, what seems too much or overwhelming, and inviting in divine presence, allowing Durga, as the Heart of Healing, to unfold Her wonders in your manifest being and in the field of your life.
The HEART (Healing Energies, Awakening Relating & Truth) Collective is a group of experienced healers and transformational guides from Australia. We share an Integral Therapies approach matching different tools to different needs that are trauma, attachment, systems, developmental, and cultural dynamics informed, accessible to people of any religious or spiritual belief, relatable to any age, and LGBTQIA+ friendly.
If you want to explore more of your divinely human self, we’re here to support you!

NIKI HUMM has a deep connection to the subtle realms and intuition. Her innate gifts have lead her to journey deep into personal and spiritual development and study a variety of healing modalities. Although Niki has trained and studied various forms of ‘energy work,’ she does not consider herself restricted or bound to any one in particular – but uses a combination of modalities in service. Some of the more recognised tools in her ‘toolkit’ include:
– Intuitive Sensing

As an ‘Eternal Student’ Niki consistently follows the life force energy to undertake trainings, healings and rituals to make space in her being and develop more healing tools. Recognising the importance of doing the deep work herself… Niki is continually evolving and participating in transformational work.
Passionate about being of service, Niki is often divinely inspired and acknowledges her role as a conduit or channel to bridge this work into the world. She is one of the pillars who created the Awakening the Bodies: Body Clearing Process alongside Ben Maron, and supported by Laurel Lee – a potent clearing process of karmic release work.
Entwined with magic and mystery, Niki is also a very ordinary, every day Mum – with an everyday mum life. She loves expressing herself through painting, writing, singing and enjoys being ridiculous and outrageous (humour is an important aspect of joy!). Integrity, Honour, Love and Compassion are values that Niki lives by, and is quite often known for her radical honesty. For more info – http://nikihumm.com.au
