A day workshop exploring healing and spiritual transformation through the yogic power of mantras ending in an evening of ecstatic chant and music. Led by musician, author and spiritual teacher Russill Paul (Anirud Jaidev) and joining on tabla, Gary Waryan of the local kirtan band Wild Moon Bhaktas.
Often, we forget that the Divine is a mystery, that yoga is a way of approaching it, and cultivating with it as a way of life. Nada Yoga, literally “The Yoga of Sound” was integral to the early mystery schools of yoga that were birthed in the Vedic Age and continued to inform the evolution of yoga in the Upanishads, Bhagavad Gita, the Yoga Sutras of Patanjali and other yogic texts.
In this day workshop, we explore the relationship between sound and yoga within the context of approaching Divine Mystery with reverence and curiosity. Join us for the day that will culminate in kirtan during which you can taste for yourself how powerful it is when sound and yoga come together in spiritual exploration.
