Living Our Purpose
Our purpose is to empower individuals through conscious community connection, joyfully deep play, and the sacred work of discovering ourselves together. We are here to help awaken, re-awaken, and manifest our innate spirituality. We facilitate and promote community events and classes that inspire personal growth, meaningful communication, inner healing, physical well-being, prosperity, conscious exploration and epiphany.
The word DevaGnosis describes “direct experiential knowledge of Spirit”. It is a marriage of languages from both Eastern and Western ancient wisdom traditions. Our highest intention is to be a central fire for tribe and community. We offer our open hands, hearts and minds for the highest good of all. In this service, we too are served. In this healing we too are healed. We invite you to gather around that we might see each other’s loving faces. We are a rich and diverse spiritual community. Let us celebrate together our many paths made one in the same Light.
We are here to help keep you aligned with the ever moving and all flowing spirit of trust, faith, and positivity. We are expectant of the many miracles that are already on their way. Here, we honor you, we empower you to believe in who you are at your very core, so you may dance with the rhythms and changing currents of life with a deep knowing of your purpose and direction.
At DevaGnosis, we believe that all of nature is sacred and divinity exists within each of us. It is all around us and it flows through us. We are connected in a great and infinite web. We also believe that the best way to truly understand spirituality is to live it, embody it, and experience it for ourselves. This is why so many of our community events involve spiritual embodiment practices (dancing, singing, chanting, drumming, walking in meditation, etc.). We believe that we are each capable of tapping into our innate wisdom, the collective unconscious, as well as our connection to Spirit (higher power). We believe that now is the time for all of us to collectively step into our highest potential. Let’s start integrating, personifying, and living it! Our events are designed to support each other at this higher vibration, to help us cultivate and stay attuned with ‘living our purpose’.
Our list of upcoming and ongoing events includes: Dance Elemental – Ecstatic Dance; Rhapsody: Drum, Chant, Dance; Sacred Voices (song & chant circle); Community Drum Circle; Energy Walk (meditative nature walks); Sacred Dance classes and workshops; and seasonal “Wheel of the Year” Celebrations. All events are hosted locally in the South Bay Area. Learn More Here
We work cooperatively with other community groups that share in our vision of a peaceful and enlightened world. If you have a spirit-centered event you’d like help promoting or getting started, or supported in any other way, let us know how we might be of service. Together we can thrive. Founded in 2007, DevaGnosis has participated at some larger events such as FolkLife in Seattle, WA and PantheaCon in San Jose, CA. We have also worked with various community centers, ‘new age’ shops, dance studios and focus groups, always bringing our very best energy and wisdom to the table. Some of our collaborative partners include:
- Center for Creative Living – San Jose, CA
- Los Gatos Acupuncture & Qigong Center – Los Gatos, CA
- Halanda Studio – Willow Glen, CA
- Community of Infinite Spirit – Willow Glen, CA
- Open to Light – San Jose, CA
- Trinity Yoga & Wellness – Campbell, CA

Dakini co-facilitates several events with DevaGnosis. (See our main calendar.) She also teaches sacred dance, drawing from traditional and modern dance styles from around the globe. Diverse dance forms are entwined with core shamanism, nature-centered spirituality, and authentic expression methodology creating what Dakini calls “Sacred World Dance”.
Her teachings honor the heart and spirit of the ancient cultures that these dances represent while bringing a spark of new life and passion to them, allowing the students to explore and create their own sacred dance practices.
Dakini has extensive experience organizing and facilitating events both large and small – from seasonal community rituals, to workshops and festivals, to intimate family gatherings. She co-founded DevaGnosis in 2007 as a partnership to meet the spiritual needs of community. She is also available for intuitive counseling and divination, reiki, and energy healing treatments by appointment.
“I strive to live a spiritually aligned life and feel called to serve my community through seasonal celebrations, ritual, and events that promote positive change, personal growth, and connection with our divine nature.”
Tymn has been co-creating and facilitating spiritual community events for nearly 20 years. As a practitioner of what we call ‘divine-nature spirituality’ he is a firm believer in the value of spiritual embodiment practices to experience our innate divinity. Ecstatic dance, sacred dance, conscious movement, walking meditation, singing, chanting, and drumming, can all be tools for realizing our spiritual nature and expanding our potential.
In 2001, he co-founded Community Seed, Earth Spirit Fellowship in Santa Cruz and in 2007 co-founded DevaGnosis. Tymn has passion for organizing and facilitating events and ceremonies, both large and small – from seasonal community rituals, hand fasting ceremonies, workshops, festivals, to intimate family gatherings.
Tymn is available for intuitive counseling, personal coaching, spiritual guidance, divination, reiki and energy healing. Available by appointment in San Jose and the Center for Creative Living. He is also available for creating personal ceremonies, hand fasting, rites of passage, house blessings and energy clearings by appointment.
Council Process (Peer Spirit): One of the core leadership principals that we base our decision making upon is called “Peer-Spirit Circle” method. The circle, or council, is an ancient form of meeting that has gathered people into respectful conversation for thousands of years. The circle has served as the foundation for many cultures. While we are not a strictly a consensus based group, we honor all voices and rely on the wisdom of community and spirit to guide our work. Our circles are great teachers and places to rest on our journey together. Learn more here…
