Shree Devi Mayi Ma
Some seekers call her Devi, Devi Ma, Ma and/or just simply Mataji which means affectionately, “mother.” In close, intimate interactions with a number of great enlightened Masters over many lifetimes, Shree Devi Mayi Ma guides the seeker to the subtle, empowering, and meditative tools and experience of knowing the Divine within for healing, transformation, and Self-realization.In 1992 a dear friend discovered Shree Devi Mayi Ma in a deep coma, blue from asphyxiation. She was almost dead after approximately five days from lack of oxygen. She had plunged deep into an abyss of severe depression. The facility’s psychiatrist at the hospital said, “Do you realize, ma chère Vivianne, God has given you a second chance at life? These reports say you were blue when they found you.” He also shared with her that he had not seen many individuals come back to life after such a blue coma, and if they did, they were either brain-dead or paralyzed. During this turbulent period of her life, she experienced several profound mystical and Divine experiences and awakenings.
Shree Devi Mayi Ma (Vivianne Nantel) experienced a phenomenal spiritual awakening, transcendental and mystical kundalini ascension in this lifetime, after an extremely long, heroic journey with several masters and ascended masters over many lifetimes, including in this one. Shree Devi Mayi Ma comes from the great lineage of the Siddha Nath Yogis, the sublime science of Kundalini Kriya Yoga which has been preserved and handed down through the ages by the eternal Shiv-Goraksha Babaji.
,In the yogic tradition, Shiva Himself (the Adi guru and Adi yogi) was the first guru and yogi who has brought the science of Self-realization or God-realization on our planet. Shree Devi Mayi Ma is a mystical embodiment of Divine feminine energy, yogini, seer, an instrument of grace, humanitarian, animal advocate and founder of Devi’s grace whose energetic presence, light, wisdom, and loving guidance can help direct others to their true nature—beyond limitations, boundaries, accumulated conditioning, and falsely held identities. Devi Ma is a mother to the world. Her life journey is her message. It demonstrates what we are capable of as human beings when we are willing, receptive, in surrender, and open to know and experience our true nature, the Divine presence. Though Devi Ma says, “She is NOT special… Everyone is a Divine embodiment!” It is just that some have NOT realized it, and are NOT experienced it yet. That is her work to help you rediscover and experience your true nature.
During Shree Devi Mayi Ma advanced cancer journey in 2007, she almost died of an acute anaphylactic shock in reaction to the intense chemotherapy. This time she was saved after experiencing a profound mystical spiritual awakening and her own resurrection with Jesus Christ’s energetic presence. By His grace, she is still among us. She has never been the same after this sacred experience.
Shree Devi Mayi Ma work is universal, her ways are subtle, and her wisdom is practical. Her compassion is deeply loving and caring, transparent and open. She emanates the Divine love’s presence, which can profoundly touch the hearts of those who meet her with willingness, openness, and receptivity, thereby inspiring each one with true healing, Divine love, joy, bliss, and a new sense of freedom, happiness, ease, and serenity.
Over several decades, Shree Devi Mayi Ma walked many paths with Parahamsa Yogananda, Yogiraj Gurunath Siddhanath, His Holiness Sri Sri Ravi Shankar, His Holiness the Dalai Lama, Thich Nhat Hanh (Zen master), and Sadhguru Jaggi Vasudev. Simply put, that is why she spent almost ten years of her life giving birth to her riveting book, Becoming the Light: Realize Your True Enlightened Nature. In this modern-day epic, Devi Ma brings the reader clarity, insight, revelation, guidance, profound wisdom, inspiration, and direction. From untruth to truth, darkness to light, and ignorance to enlightenment—this has been her liberating path. Available in fine bookstores and online, Becoming the Light has been nominated for an award by Foreword Indie as a finalist for the best book of the year (2018) in the category of transformation for body, mind and soul.
Shree Devi Mayi Ma graduated magna cum laude with a Bachelor of Fine Arts from San Francisco State University and a minor in creative writing in 1999 (see her fine art on the Creation page). Her featured articles have appeared numerous times in Yoga Magazine, Yogapedia, Thrive Global, Poet’s Paper, the National Literary Journal, and Animal Wellness Magazine, among others.
