Bhakti Yoga is the path of personal relationship with Spirit, with God, with Goddess; it’s a relationship that includes all the flavors and moods of the human heart. In the journey of Bhakti, your emotions become the fuel to reconnect you with the Divine and help you to find healing and wholeness within yourself. Through singing kirtan you can explore, express, and share the deepest caverns of your soul—and ultimately find the eternal springs of love.
For everyone who loves kirtan (chanting the ecstatic songs of ancient India), this workshop will fuel your soul. Jai will share and demystify some of the secrets of kirtan. With just a little understanding of music and rhythm, and a lot of self-acceptance, we all can sing, lead, and share our hearts with others. The practice of chanting can become our teacher, guiding us home.

Riding Jai’s kirtan is a journey that spirals into the heart with such incredible passion, tenderness, stamina, and surrender that one is left transformed and sanctified. Not to be missed—the best around. — Shiva Rea
Jai and Vish are amazing and I loved the chanting and stories. — Past Participant
Both Vish and Jai Uttal are very genuine and authentic. — Past Participant
Everything about this program was exceptional. The Yogaville “experience” cannot be adequately described in words—think kindness, peace and bliss. The content (kirtan/chanting) was meditative and soul stirring. In a word: Perfect!! — Joel Bruno, Past Participant
