Divine Feminine Spotlight Series
Welcome to the Transformation Goddess – Divine Feminine Spotlight for January!

The intention of The Divine Feminine Spotlight series is to share transformational stories of women who have learned to walk in beauty, with the strength, courage, and pleasure of claiming their feminine sovereignty.


Chameli ArdaghToday it’s my pleasure to introduce you to the soulful and beautiful, Chameli Ardagh. This Goddess Shines!

Chameli (Sha-mily) is a practitioner and teacher of feminine spirituality, and she has inspired thousands of women around the world with her breakthrough methods for living and embodying feminine awakening for real. She is especially appreciated for her love of mythology and storytelling as a method for illuminating our unique place in the vast tapestry of life. She is the initiator of a global network of groups for women, creator of a home study program and author of two books on feminine empowerment and spirituality.

Divine Feminine Spotlight conversations can be enjoyed by clicking on the player below, or easily downloaded to your iPhone or mp3 player via our popular Transformation Goddess Experience Podcast at iTunes or Stitcher.



“An Awakening Woman is a spiritual rebellion engaged in a glowing and embodied, nothing-held-back love affair with the great mystery. She moves in the world with fierce compassion, grace and freedom, and is passionate about truth, rest & real love. She is fluent in angelic, diva and in Kali roars. Earth is home and so is infinity.”
– Chameli Ardagh


Transformation Goddess Mandala
Here is a brief overview of my conversation with Chameli Ardagh.

I recommend you listen to our intimate audio conversation to receive the full energetic connection of this transformational conversation.


I know you will enjoy Chameli’s presence and transparency.

Please share a life-altering transition and transformation in your life.

I experience my teachings becoming more fierce and uncompromising.There is such an important birthing going on of women finding their voice, being willing to take stand for what our hearts tell us is important, and to be willing to stay tall even when the legs are wobbly, and the voice is trembling, to be willing to be a vehicle to the wisdom which wants to be spoken through us. So I feel like a midwife of this voice coming through me, as well as through my sisters.

What are your favorite sacred feminine rituals?

I pray the Gayatri Mantra for the world. When we sing this ancient mantra, we
join in a garland of prayers surrounding our world. I have been saying this mantra daily for more than 14 years. Listen to the podcast to hear Chameli chant the Gayatri Mantra.

Om Bhoor Bhuvah Svah Tat Savitur Varenyam Bhargo Devasya Dheemahi Dhiyo Yonah Prachodayaat.

Throughout all existence “That” essential nature illuminating existence is the Adorable One. May all beings perceive with subtle intellect the magnificent brilliance of enlightened awareness.

 How do you relate to your body, sexuality and power?

I relate to every experience as Shakti– as creative energy–this is felt through the body. All energy arise from the same source, so I relate to each experience as a portal into deeper connection with that one source. When there is a lot of energy, there is a lot of fuel for awakening.

What inspired you to create the 21 Day online Shakti Sadhana Immersions?

My inspiration for creating the 21 Day online Shakti Sadhana Immersions came from a dream. In it I was told to create this platform for women from all over the world to come together with a shared dedication to awakening and truth. Each time we practice with a Goddess, so Her Shakti/energy, and how it breathes and moves each one of us, is the fuel for our practice.

Please Tell us about Your Love Offering

chamelilakshmi-300x231Register to start your three part Awakening Women mini-course:
3 feminine embodiment practices

When you register below, you’ll receive access to an introductory mini-course.
During three days we will introduce you to three Yogini practices.

1. Feel Kiss Flow

This practice will help you to move
from being stuck in the mental story about a feeling
into the actual feeling itself.

It cultivates the capacity to stay present with feelings,
even strong ones, so they can flow through
and leave you open and fresh for the next moment.

2. Goddess rinse.

This practice is especially perfect if you work
in a very mental and masculine environment,
or if you, as most of us, have a habit of spending
most of your time in the mental realms.

3. Earth breathing.

This meditation is a way to ground yourself,
to create inner calm and clarity,
and to reunite with Earth, your home.

    I so agree that there is a global wen awakening, I see it in myself and so many other women. What a wonderful metaphor of a midwife helping women birthing their true and shining selves.
