The juxtaposition of joy and sorrow are inevitable as we journey through our lives on Earth.
I have had my share of losing my bearings within dark nights of the Soul.
Decades ago when lost in such darkness a friend took me aside to say,
‘If you don’t like the view you see through the window you are looking out of, move to another window.”
As we move deeper and faster into the technological age it has become the norm to experience a growing sense of alienation from each other, from community, from the natural world and most importantly from oneself. This leads to feelings of fragmentation.
In addition to one’s personal experience of traumatic events we are bombarded with trauma on a global scale via the media. Is it any wonder that there are pandemic levels of fear and anxiety within the human community?
My name is Dinah. I was born in Australia in 1949, the first child of refugees from Europe, named after a first cousin gassed at Auschwitz. After graduating with honors in Psychology and attaining post grad qualifications in Education I pursued studies in natural healing. I worked professionally for many years as a holistic psychologist and teacher combining the wisdom of natural therapies with my academic training in Western Psychology. My conscious spiritual journey began in 1981 after a meeting with Bhagavan Sri Sathya Sai Baba. Numerous pilgrimages to India followed this wake up call. In 2002, taking a giant leap in faith, I sold my Australian home, closed my private practice and moved to India to follow a dream I had cherished for many years. During my lengthy stay in India I was privileged to sit with enlightened teachers and undertook many pilgrimages to sacred sites.
I returned from my first visit to India in 1985 feeling as if my brain had been rewired.
The experience of living for a very extended period in a culture so different from the western culture in which I grew up has certainly been both transforming and empowering.17 years after venturing out on my big adventure I have returned to Australia creating a base in Redcliffe Queensland. And so another chapter in my life begins. I bring to my new life an integration of Western psychology and the ancient wisdom of the sacred land of Bharat.
I have come to realize that:
The very survival of our planet depends on a global shift in consciousness from fear and powerlessness to an awareness of the power of our innate divinity.
Pain and pleasure are like the two sides of a coin. Pleasure and pain, loss and gain, fame and infamy are inextricably linked in the world. The experience of pain is inevitable. One can choose to respond or to react to pain be it physical or emotional.To react to pain is the behaviour of a victim.
A victim feels unjustly treated and often remains stuck in past hurts unable to forgive the perceived perpetrator of the hurt.
A victim feels powerless. This powerlessness usually expresses itself through anger and/or fear.
Many of us find it difficult to move beyond victim status. The sense of being a victim can become a habit. When this happens one has descended into a state of victimhood.
The message of authentic spiritual masters throughout the ages is that we are sparks of divine energy, that we are powerful embodiments of love. One’s journey towards divinity consists in learning to treat pleasure and pain alike.
The spiritual journey can be seen as the transition from victimhood to empowerment.
For the foreseeable future I shall move between my two earthly homes –India and Australia.

The 3 days with you and the other participants was totally sacred to me and I feel a level of reverence towards the feminine that I never felt before. I have a sense and experience of the Goddess nurturing and care and love that I never experienced before. The workshop was pure alchemy.....or should I say it provided the ingredients for the alchemical process to start In my own life...I have a sense of much energy that was infused during the workshop. Without you it would have been impossible. I have always know that we personally cannot help /assist anybody further on the road than we have come are ourselves...you have a wealth of wisdom and energy and thank you for your very large heart to be willing to share that abundance with us. Thank you Dinah Devi. I honour your great spirit!
Thank you so much Dinah for offering us such an amazing workshop with your wealth of insight, experience and understanding. For me personally the workshop has been therapeutic on so many different levels. I encountered moments of fresh insight into my own psyche and felt the wonderful support as we explored and shared the universal themes of the Divine Feminine.
I must admit that I had no particular expectations to begin with for attending this workshop, other than the fact that I needed to work on my feminine energy.So, I was curious to attend.was I in for a big surprise!The free-flow format was perfect for this workshop You so killfully llowed each participant to feel comfortable and safe enough to contribute to the content that you covered. This was great as it allowed us to learn from each other and become open to the experiences and issues of women from different backgrounds and cultures.What I thought was amazing was the bond that developed among the participants for each other....…bringing out the feminine attributes of patience, empathy, understanding and most of all Love. How better to Honour the Feminine Energy.Well done Dinah!"
Thank you once again for your wonderful workshop! It was a great inspiration for both of us - for Dieter and me. It gave Dieter a good clue on how to deal with his search for "truth". And I had some very helpful ideas for one of my next seminars on conflicts. Above all -the love meditation yesterday was relieving. Afterwards we felt much better afterwards (together). Thank you also for sharing so many personal experiences with us. We consider this to be a great gift.
Love and light,
Dieter and Daniella
I want to express my immense gratitude that I could attend your workshop.I reflected a lot not only during the days of your classes but also later. The technique teaches self-inquiry in a soft way, so that one can recognize one's own "edges" and how one can smoothen them. Finally the "flute" becomes hollower as you nicely put it. I really wish many people got a chance to know about your gracious means of transformation.In a nutshell I can say, this experience with you was very, very precious and I shall remember it forever.
