Anita’s life mission is living and cultivating a life of balance in serving others. Her lifestyle teachings have been infused by the magic of her birthplace and the spiritual healing lineage within her family. Born in Mysore India, Anita continues to draw inspiration from her mother who is her spiritual teacher Swamini Srividyananda.
Anita has always connected with sacred rituals and believes the elements to lasting beauty are more than skin deep. She created Rasa Bhava Beauty, a haven for Soul Nourishment, to provide clients an opportunity to immerse oneself in the nourishing elixir of life and taste the magic of self-transformation. As a licensed face and body therapist she believes in the magic of botanicals and essential oils to balance and heal the senses. Her knowledge of skincare, aromatherapy, Ayurveda, Nutrition and Sacred Rituals elevates the soul experience to another level.
In her words: “I get real joy from helping people experience their true divine self, inner light, and witness a-haa moments. I believe when you fulfill your purpose (Sankalpa) with meaning it gives you that electrifying juice (Rasa) and the essential inner-connection to the Divine (Bhava). The essence of Self- RasaBhava”
I look forward to seeing you on this journey!

~A Tantric teaching
Come discover the mysteries and powers of Goddess Lalita, also known, as Tripurasundari Lalita is the Keeper of the Mysteries of the Sri Yantra, a sacred meditative diagram representing the creation and dissolution of the Universe and Divine Union Within. The Sri Yantra and teachings and practices around Lalita are a path of energy and power.
We will begin on the Summer Solstice, the shortest night of the year and celebrate the light of Consciousness as Lalita. During this retreat we will honor Lalita energies of beauty, play, delight, pleasure and bliss within and around us through meditation, guided visualization and mantra.
Every evening we will perform a Goddess moon puja (ritual) to one of the 16 lunar Nityas, Goddesses who are each an aspect of Tripurasundari/Lalita and represent the various stages of the light of the waxing moon and rule over various aspects of our lives.
We will weave in the beauty of Ayurveda and Yoga. How can we radiate from the inside out? How can we embody beauty? We will immerse ourselves in nourishing beauty rituals daily, aromatherapy anointing oils, learn simple lifestyle rituals, beauty and health secrets to stay vital and Radiant!
The essence of this immersion is to cultivate and honor The Art of Sacred Beauty, and to enjoy time and space to discover a connection to the truth of who you really are and begin to cultivate a daily practice which supports a harmonious flow of energy, while on retreat and most importantly when you return home.
Why Honor Her?
For millennia people have used re-treat, rituals and sacred contemplation in living a life of balance. Spending time for us brings change to our lives in many ways.
During this retreat together we will dive into :
* Diving into Goddess wisdom – Beauty /Play/Mystery – Introduction to Tripurasundari, and 3 of Her potent forms (Lalita, Tripurabhairavi, Saraswati & the Kumari)
*Ayurvedic Beauty – Beauty is more than skin deep! Prized for cultivating both inner and outer beauty. The art of Rasa rituals (self- massage, aromatherapy anointing oils, face and body scrubs, sacred bath, cultivating radiant lifestyle)
*Yoga/Meditation– Meditation in motion – Daily yoga, pranayama and heart felt movement with a view of the sacred volcanoes and Lake Atitlan.
*Mantra and Sacred offerings – Honoring the light of our soul –Discover the healing power of sound and connection to our Divinity in the heart, through fire ceremonies honoring various energies of the Goddess.
*Shamanic Healing – Re-connect guidance with cacao and meditation to begin to shed layers and reveal our true radiant essence!
* The Place– Mystical Magical Maya – Our conscious “off the grid” living on this retreat will ignite what the wisdom keepers teach us is, simple living – high thinking through experiencing the land, and walking with a smaller footprint in appreciation of what other cultures have to offer.
