Urban Devi is a community of women who gather (both in the NYC Bhakti Center and online) to explore and excavate their identities as urban women living the spiritual life. An urban devi is in the world, but not of the world. She acts in the world to uplift, and shift the consciousness of those around her to a higher place of Bhakti, or love in action. Urban Devi was founded by Rukmini Walker and is dedicated to hearing and seeing the beauty of women in the Bhakti community within the context of modern city life.
