with Musical Guests
Spend a weekend immersed in the bhakti tradition of heart-centered practices, including chanting. We’ll explore the joyful and meditative journey of singing to the Divine through call-and-response, which creates a bridge between the individual and the eternal, opening the heart and welcoming the spirit. By singing these prayers, we unite our voices and join in a stream of consciousness and devotion that has been flowing for centuries.
Join Janet Stone and friends for an exploration of bhakti/devotion. We’ll chant, chant, chant and drink in the wisdom of many a guest musician who will share their experience and interpretation of bhakti.
We will explore:
• Mantra and meaning
• How to lead chanting
• Basic harmonium skills
• Stories of the deities/aspects of the self we invoke through chanting
• What devotion means in our own lives
• Expression through sound and voice
• English translations of Sanskrit chants
• Intention and sound
Each day will include a morning practice with musical accompaniment, followed by discussion, sharing, and lots of chanting.
