A Weekend Of Music, Mantra, and Magic

with Seán Johnson & The Wild Lotus Band

April 14 - 16, 2023

Join Seán Johnson and The Wild Lotus Band for a heart-opening Bhakti weekend that includes two concerts, two Bhakti Flow Yoga sessions, and a storytelling music finale.

The weekend’s events include:

Friday night
Mantra Music Concert 

The weekend program begins with an evening of interactive, soul-stirring ancient mantras given new voice through dynamic songs that merge conscious lyrics and New Orleans roots, rock, gospel, and world grooves.

The event also celebrates the release of the band’s new album Mystery. Their last album Unity debuted #1 on the iTunes World Music Chart and #3 on Billboard. The band’s songs have appeared on Putumayo World Music, and they are the first mantra-based band to ever play The New Orleans Jazz Festival.

Saturday morning
Brigid’s Flame: Live Music Flow 

Learn about the inspiring Celtic goddess and saint Brigid and invoke her archetypal power within you. This imaginative vinyasa Yoga practice weaves Yoga and Celtic spirituality, a nature based way of being that invites us to be our authentic selves and to live from the heart. Brigid represents the flame within us to nurture, heal, and protect, which we will ignite and kindle throughout the practice.

Saturday afternoon
Story Time: Mystery, Romance, and Crazy Wisdom 

Dive deep into the playful, mythic world of Yoga. Relax your mind, laugh, cry, and unpack some inner wisdom. Seán believes that Yoga teachers can be modern day bards who help us remember who we are through storytelling. He puts a fun, deep, contemporary spin on inspirational tales from the lore of Yoga to bring the stories to life in your own heart. Each tale will be accompanied by the enchanting sounds of The Wild Lotus Band. You’ll have the option to journal and explore what the stories mean to you through intuitive art. Bring a journal and markers or crayons.

Saturday night
Mantra Music Concert

End the day with another evening of interactive, soul-stirring ancient mantras given a new voice through dynamic songs that merge conscious lyrics and New Orleans roots, rock, gospel, and world grooves. The band will play a completely different set of music from Friday night.

Sunday morning
Sanctuary: Deep Peace—Chanting and Live Music Chill Out 

Indulge yourself, relax, and recharge with this mellow, all levels practice guided by Seán and supported by the soothing live sounds of the band. The class includes serene lullabies and chants to support deep calm and rest.

If you can’t make it for the weekend program, join Seán Johnson and The Wild Lotus Band for an intimate Saturday Satsang Concert. All are welcome. The concert is part of the weekend workshop.

Continuing Education (CE) Opportunities


Sean Johnson is one of the best Bhakti Yoga storytellers that I know. I love how he weaves the stories into the chanting. It’s Divine. He is also one of the best teachers out there and I love the gentle way he guides those that may be new in learning the chant without letting the rest of us wait. Just BRILLIANT! This Bhakti Immersion was bliss for my soul! — Ann-Marie (Priya) Bochicchio

Sean’s ability to connect into the center of your heart is an art and a talent. He willingly encouraged us to “find the bottom of the ocean of your soul”. We discovered this real, safe, loving space within ourselves. The singing, harmonium, drums, and sound was the best I have heard in a zoom workshop. The frequency of my mind-body during the singing, storytelling, and art expression of coloring and writing was the true BHAKTI practice. We all shine that One connected Light. Sean’s experience of teaching Bhakti yoga is over many years; his practice and education speaks for itself. — Charlotte Connick Mabry

Sean Johnson brings Bhakti Yoga down to earth and into a very attainable space to connect with your heart and those of the others in the community. I felt myself opening up to my heart’s desires and digging deep into my soul to connect with what matters most in my life right now. — Michelle H. Schenker


Seán Johnson & The Wild Lotus Band
“The much-beloved band evoke, conjure and celebrate that universally felt yet impossible-to-define essence that lies at the heart of all things, what Bob Marley once called ‘a natural mystic, flowing through the air.’ ” – Alan di Perna (Rolling Stone, Creem, Billboard) Seán Johnson & The Wild Lotus Band merge conscious lyrics, sacred chants from the spiritual traditions of yoga and beyond, and roots, rock, gospel, and global grooves to create a universal style of cross-cultural spiritual music. They are known for creating interactive, soul-stirring songs to dance and sing along with as well as to grieve and heal. Their…
