Path of Devotion Retreat with Krishna Das
Join Krishna Das for a weekend retreat of yoga, chanting and devotional heart-opening practices. This is a wonderful opportunity to spend time with a group of dedicated seekers and immerse yourself in practices, teachings and discussions. The retreat program consists of evening kirtans and afternoon workshops. Kirtans are approximately 2.5 hours of call-and-response chanting with musical accompaniment and workshops are approximately 3-4 hours of call-and-response chanting, talks about the spiritual path, and a forum for questions and answers.
Also included in the retreat program, is group chanting of Hanuman Chalisas with Nina Rao. This an opportunity for beginners and experienced chanters to join in the chanting this 40-verse prayer in praise of Hanuman, together as a group. The prayer is from the Indian tradition with Hanuman invoked as the very breath of the Divine – our own Divine nature. Many believe that chanting this prayer gives us the strength to get through difficult times with compassion and grace. Word sheets will be provided. No experience necessary.
There will be some extended chanting sessions included in the daytime programs over the weekend.
2 yoga classes will be scheduled into the weekend as well.
