Lavanga pulls from her wide array of knowledge and techniques she has cultivated in the 30+ years she has been an artist and practitioner of holistic health and spiritual disciplines.
Lavanga Latika is Sanskrit for "one with delicate limbs to clings to God." It is a way of addressing the Feminine Divine. It was given to me by my teacher in 2004 and since then I've usually only used one half of it - "Lavanga."
A few years ago, as is my usual, I was wrestling with the idea of re-inventing myself and my business. I was looking back on my 30+ years of training, experience and knowledge I've collected. I realized I was only sharing a small portion of myself. What was holding me back - I was afraid of putting my whole authentic self out there for fear of being rejected in some way.
My first thought was to focus on maybe 3 or 4 of them, and if so, what should they be? Then, one day I was speaking to a friend about this, and they said, "why not share all of them?"
I knew they were right.
At first I was scared, but I knew it's what I had to do. I could not keep only revealing part of myself. What a burden that is! And at that moment, I knew what I needed to call my business.
Even though in person I still go by "Lavanga," my business is named "Lavanga Latika," because for the first time in my life, I am ready to share more than just a portion of my skills and knowledge to the world. What you see here is what you get. I'm not afraid anymore, and boy is that liberating!
My hope is you will find something useful for you in one, two or more of my "selves." And in this way, I can be a part of your own unique journey to become the whole self you were created to be!
