About This Event

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 and practices 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.

Saturday Satsang Concert Only: $30 in advance, $40 at the door

 

Testimonials

Unlock a new heart space by singing, storytelling, and blissfully connecting with Jai Uttal. His willingness to share his own struggles along his spiritual journey created a safe space for me to let go of expectation and self-doubt and just be in Bhakti. — Heather Acord

I had a very soulful journey with Jai and Vish. It was the best kirtan in the world! — Deepika Green

My only complain is that it had to end. I will definitely be back next year! — 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

Truth is One, Paths are Many. ~Sri Swami Satchidananda, Yogaville Founder
