Kirtan with The Bhakti Caravan

Rarely do we get out on a Saturday night, but yes! We are going to be at YOGA NOW (downtown) and delight in sharing kirtan with this beautiful community.

For those who have experienced kirtan, we know it can be a powerful and joyful experience that easily dissipates any resistance or negativity, elevates us into a higher consciousness and completely throws off the monkey mind!

Anyone can join us - you might just fall in love ;-)

Radha will lead us into a deeper state of connection through short guided meditations interspersed with mantra chanting, and along with blissful melodies and life-giving rhythms we are filled and empowered.

Vocalist Andrea Klunder will be back after a medical leave, along with Lisa Devi, Marla Shuman and Jeff Stitely on tabla and percussion. Our core group, guitarists David Karnes and James Hope (bass) join Radha on harmonium and vocals. Our drummer Tosho sadly has another engagement on the 13th but we'll have his energy with us!

$10 in advance, $15 at the door.

The Bhakti Caravan is opening to an evening filled with pure love, and is holding the vision of a healing, nourishing evening together.

Kirtan: Meditation and Mantra
The Bhakti Caravan Band and Lisa Devi

Absorb the ancient vibrations of sacred mantras and connect in satsang—to sit together in truth—with sound, breath, and meaning. Experience short meditations and chant mantras in devotional practice. Kirtan is a powerful path to an awakened state of being as you elevate your spirit, open your heart and raise the collective consciousness. Kirtan is an enlivening chanting of mantras and simple, call-and-response devotional phrases.

Join in a blend of tribal, traditional, and lyrical musical styles in this community kirtan filled with joyful chanting.

As you join in, feelings of love, gratitude, connection, and joy bubble up. An awakened state of Self emerges. Kirtan touches your soul and connects you with universal concepts such as protection, surrender, gratitude, and relief.

Neither experience in singing nor kirtan is necessary.

Yin Yoga & Sound Bath

Yin Yoga & Sound Bath

Join Lisa Devi and Michael Liang in a Yin Yoga & Sound Bath Workshop!

Yin Yoga aligns and grounds us into our bodies, preparing to receive and store energy. It combines the traditional seated yogic postures with Chinese Taoist qi theory, balancing energy flow through the chakras and meridians. Long holds of floor postures with relaxed muscles will restore elasticity to your fascia, ligaments, and tendons, restoring your joints to optimum health. This is particularly helpful for athletes, because most people don’t leave sports for muscle injury, but for joint or tendon reasons. Yin Yoga balances a lifestyle of vigorous movement with stillness, calming your nervous system. You will be able to focus your awareness to areas that are out of balance, focusing and condensing qi and prana for healing. 

Sound Healing uses intentional frequency through soundscapes to create an environment for deep cellular healing on a physical, mental, emotional, or spiritual plane. Through the ambient, gentle frequencies, we are able to connect to a boundless flow of harmonious and vital energy. Periods of profound relaxation may alternate with roaming insights and vivid imagery, through an evolving soundscape of crystal bowls, Tibetan bowls, Native American flutes, vocal mantra meditation, and other instruments. Many experience pleasurable sensations of vibration through and around their body.

 

SOME BENEFITS OF SOUND HEALING:

  • Increased vital energy flow, creativity, intuition and motivation

  • Soothes, purify and harmonize your emotions

  • Improves sleep

  • Lessening of pain

  • Increased focus and clarity in daily life

  • Deeper sense of inner connection

Healing the Collective: Sound Journey

Join Lisa Devi in an immersion workshop of Yoga, Qigong, and Sound Healing! 

As Yoga aligns and grounds us in our bodies, preparing to build vibrant energy, Qigong helps us to receive more and procure energetic connection to heal the subtle body. Sound Healing uses intentional frequency through soundscapes to create an environment for deep cellular healing on a physical, mental, emotional, and spiritual plane. Through the ambient, gentle frequencies, we are able to connect to a boundless flow of harmonious vital energy. Lisa Devi creates an evolving soundscape of crystal bowls, Tibetan bowls, Native American flutes, vocal mantra meditation, crystal harp, and chimes.

More about Qigong: The natural world is brimming with life force. Qigong is an ancient Chinese system of movement, breath synchronization, and focused intention that allows us to connect to this boundless supply of energy. The practice is an effortless flow that mirrors the way nature moves, like clouds floating across the sky, a tree growing into the sunlight, or a river flowing down a mountain.

Qi – life force energy. Breath, Air, and Vitality.

Gong – General term, meaning expertise, or work. Patience and practice to perfect.

More about Sound Healing:

Possible Benefits Include:

· Increased vital energy flow, creativity, intuition and motivation

· Soothes, purify and harmonize your emotions

· Improves sleep

· Lessening on pain

· Increased focus and clarity in daily life

· Deeper sense of inner connection

Autumn Sound Journey

Autumn Sound Journey

Autumn is a call to harvest the fruits of our summer experience in preparation for the winter. It is a time for contemplating what we are prepared to discard as the balance of light and dark tips. A sound journey is one way to honor this seasonal transition, or any personal changes that are arriving with cooler weather.

Sound Healing (Nada Yoga) frequency vibration helps to shift our state of being (physically, mentally, emotionally, spiritually) back to our natural state of harmony. This is frequency medicine, bringing a vibrational massage all the way down to the cellular level to unwind the mind and bring deep relaxation and inner peace. In these states of consciousness, participants may experience enhanced creative vision, self and soul learnings, and release from all things exacerbated by stress. 

Comfortably seated or reclining, you will have plentiful time to rest, meditate, contemplate and marvel while Lisa Devi creates an evolving soundscape of crystal bowls, Tibetan bowls, Native American flutes, vocal mantra meditation, harps, chimes, and many other instruments. Some choose to rest for the whole 1 ½ hours, others move or stretch as inspired. Please dress comfortably in clothing that allows easy movement.

POSSIBLE BENEFITS INCLUDE: 

  • Increased vital energy flow, creativity, intuition and motivation
  • Soothes, purify and harmonize your emotions
  • Improves sleep
  • Lessening of pain
  • Increased focus and clarity in daily life
  • Deeper sense of inner connection

Blankets and cushions provided, but you may wish to bring your own if you like to have lots of padding.

Yin Yoga & Sound Bath

Yin Yoga & Sound Bath (1).png

Yin Yoga & Sound Bath

Join Lisa Devi and Michael Liang in a Yin Yoga & Sound Bath Workshop!

Yin Yoga aligns and grounds us into our bodies, preparing to receive and store energy. It combines the traditional seated yogic postures with Chinese Taoist qi theory, balancing energy flow through the chakras and meridians. Long holds of floor postures with relaxed muscles will restore elasticity to your fascia, ligaments, and tendons, restoring your joints to optimum health. This is particularly helpful for athletes, because most people don’t leave sports for muscle injury, but for joint or tendon reasons. Yin Yoga balances a lifestyle of vigorous movement with stillness, calming your nervous system. You will be able to focus your awareness to areas that are out of balance, focusing and condensing qi and prana for healing. 

Sound Healing uses intentional frequency through soundscapes to create an environment for deep cellular healing on a physical, mental, emotional, or spiritual plane. Through the ambient, gentle frequencies, we are able to connect to a boundless flow of harmonious and vital energy. Periods of profound relaxation may alternate with roaming insights and vivid imagery, through an evolving soundscape of crystal bowls, Tibetan bowls, Native American flutes, vocal mantra meditation, and other instruments. Many experience pleasurable sensations of vibration through and around their body.

 

SOME BENEFITS OF SOUND HEALING:

  • Increased vital energy flow, creativity, intuition and motivation
  • Soothes, purify and harmonize your emotions
  • Improves sleep
  • Lessening of pain
  • Increased focus and clarity in daily life
  • Deeper sense of inner connection
