“This beautiful book radiates with the light and compassion of the mother goddess herself. With clear language, an empathetic voice, and a vibrant vision for what is possible for any of us, Ananta shows us the many faces of love. This is a hero’s journey from a deeply poetic, profound feminine point of view.”

About the Book

Inspired by the nine-night fall goddess festival of Navratri from the ancient Vedic spiritual tradition that gifted the world Yoga and its sister science Ayurveda, The Way of the Goddess is an invitation to embark upon your own sacred hero’s journey. Author and spiritual teacher Ananta Ripa Ajmera shares her story of how she overcame trauma and all forms of abuse with the spiritual power of love, to give you a roadmap to reclaim your own power.


Weaving together mythological storytelling, memoir, and inspired rituals, this is a step-by-step guide to balance each of your chakras. Each chapter leads you through simple daily rituals to reclaim nine spiritual superpowers, of stability, creativity, transformation, love, voice, intuition, truth, rejuvenation and intention. Along the way, you’ll meet nine mythological Indian mother goddesses who represent each superpower within your own being. Their stories, along with Ananta’s personal experience of overcoming sexual abuse, codependency, betrayal, eating disorders and narcissistic abuse will spark your own fire of transformation and healing. 


Whether you’re looking to overcome trauma, deepen your spiritual practices, or simply to reconnect to what matters most, the daily spiritual practices in this vibrantly illustrated and empowering guide will help you reflect, rejuvenate, and most of all, inspire you to become the hero of your own spiritual journey.

About the Online Book Club

I envisage the book club as a space in which we can together slowly explore Myriad Intimacies. The book’s cumulative and multi-genre form invites us, through reading/viewing, to (re)think ideas about self, other, nature, desire, racial and identity differences. My hope is that our transit through prose, poetry, essay, video, and typographical experiments will allow us to not merely encounter the ideas I propose but to experience them as well.


In the book, I strive to bridge academic and general interest audiences. If some of the language in some of the pieces is difficult, you will find that we return to the same concepts elsewhere in a way that makes easier or clearer sense. The additional materials and our two Zoom sessions will also serve to clarify concepts and extend the conversation. I am as keen to learn from your experience of reading/viewing as to ensure that you “get” my argument. To this end, you will be invited to generate a map of your own journey through the text. I look forward to learning from you all.
