The Beauty of Bhakti Yoga and Kirtan

with Govind Das

May 26 - 29, 2023

Come join us this Memorial Day weekend to dive deep into the Yoga practices of love, joy, and devotion: the ancient path of Bhakti Yoga. Experience this uplifting weekend immersion engaging in the practices of Bhakti Yoga to help us find profound clarity within our minds and hearts and remember the essential love of who we really are.

Let’s drench ourselves in the fragrant love of this devotional path. During this transformative time together, we will join our hearts in satsang (community) and do sadhana (practice) together.

Join us for:

  • Simple puja (worship ceremony) as well as setting up an altar
  • Japa (repetition) mantra meditation (bring your Mala beads)
  • Kirtan (call-and-response chanting)
  • Mantras and prayers from the Yoga tradition
  • Hanuman Chalisa chanting and philosophy
  • Maha Mantra chanting
  • Nine Modes of Bhakti
  • Dharmic (rights, character, vocation) dialogue and heart sharing

Govind Das invites you to join him for this special retreat at Yogaville. Come and chant, hear ageless stories, and share a moment in time in the beauty of Bhakti Yoga.

Two inspiring talks will also be offered by guest presenter and senior Integral Yoga teacher Swami Asokananda on the topics of Bhakti Yoga and “Transcending Worry, Anxiety, and Fear Through Devotion”. Swami Asokananda is well-known for his wisdom, sincerity, and spiritual dedication.

Govind Das will perform a special concert for the Saturday night Satsang as part of this workshop at Yogaville. If you can’t make it for the weekend program, join Govind Das for an intimate Saturday evening concert. All are welcome.
