Bhakti Experience Workshop & Kirtan: “Healing the Heart with Mantra, Movement and Devotion”
with Jai Uttal, Nubia Teixeira and Swami Ramananda
Saturday, April 7 | 1:08-5:30pm
Bhakti Yoga is the path of personal, loving relationship with the Divine, as He or She manifests in every molecule of creation. It is an inner journey of surrender, powerful emotions, and deep practice — not for the faint of heart. For, as we explore the interior landscapes of our souls, we quickly realize that there are no maps and our only guide is the very longing of our deepest selves to meet our true Beloved. We make mistakes, take wrong turns, but none of it matters as we sing and passionately call out to that inﬁnite source of Love…..
Please come and join Swami Ramananda, Nubia Teixeira and Jai Uttal for a day of devotional exploration. Let’s all join hands and hearts and help each other in our quest for Spirit — in our seemingly endless voyage to the land of love…..
