Awakening Bhakti: A Celebration of Divine and Human Love
with Jai Uttal and Visvambhar "Vish" Sheth
November 2 - 4, 2018
Bhakti Yoga is the path of personal relationship with Spirit, with God, with Goddess; it’s a relationship that includes all the flavors and moods of the human heart. In the journey of Bhakti, your emotions become the fuel to reconnect you with the Divine and help you to find healing and wholeness within yourself. Through singing kirtan you can explore, express, and share the deepest caverns of your soul—and ultimately find the eternal springs of love.
For everyone who loves kirtan (chanting the ecstatic songs of ancient India), this workshop will fuel your soul. Jai will share and demystify some of the secrets of kirtan. With just a little understanding of music and rhythm, and a lot of self-acceptance, we all can sing, lead, and share our hearts with others. The practice of chanting can become our teacher, guiding us home.
