Legends of the Hindu Deities: (90mins-3hrs)
There is a vast array of mythical deities in the Hindu tradition, and in the Bhakti Yoga practice of Kirtan, we celebrate by singing to them! In this engaging workshop, Amah Devi will share stories and songs of Shiva, Sita & Ram, Ganesh, Krishna & Radha, and more. Together we will build a greater context for understanding the colorful stories that are the underpinning of the Bhakti path. Sharing the pastimes of the deities is a rich pathway into the Heart of Devotion!
Mantra, Music, and Mindfulness– Exploring the Yoga of Sound: (90mins)
There is more to yoga than meets the eye. This ancient science includes a variety of practices designed to capture our attention and engage our senses for a truly out-of-this-world experience! Come and explore the transformative power of simple mantras designed to release you from the anxieties of the overactive mind. Get back to your natural state of contentment and clarity through personal mantra practice as well as group singing (Kirtan) with this amazingly accessible meditation practice. Just below the surface of our minds, there is an undercurrent of quiet thought where we feel fully connected to the sublime world around us. Mantra practice gives us the tools to dispel the illusion of separation and create a lasting sense of calm that we can carry with us off our yoga mats and into our everyday lives.
