MADHU IS BACK! Join our favorite kirtaneer & inspring soul as he makes his return to Philly for a Saturday of yoga philosophy, high vibrations, and transcendental sound meditation!
How does a yogi bring the spiritual into the realm of the physical and of everyday life? In this special event, Madhu and special guest Ananda Murari-Dasa will present a mind-expanding and consciousnes-opening workshop on "The Secrets of Bhakti Yoga: Bridging the gap of the material to the spiritual / Asana to Bhakti." Learn from their deep spiritual experience as monks and as students of the ancient Vedic traditions of India.
The second half of the evening will bring some theory into ecstatic practice - a special, blissful group kirtan with Madhu & Ananda - one that will shake the cobwebs off your spiritual self and enliven your connection to the divine!
Workshop - $15
Kirtan - donation-based!
Kirtan is an ancient form of mantra meditation, a component of bhakti-yoga (the yoga of devotion), which has the power to open and purify the heart. This chanting, accompanied by musical instruments and rhythmic drumming, brings the audience to its feet in the joy of singing, clapping, and dancing with pure devotion. In its heartfelt expression kirtan can induce profound states or meditation, bliss, and esctasy.
Madhuri pura Das (Madhu) has been practicing and teaching kirtan & the philosophy of yoga for many years in the bhakti-yoga tradition. Madhu offers Kirtan music training lessons for learning how to lead and participate in Kirtan, vocal and instrument training, and the history and philosophy of Kirtan for beginner, intermediate and advanced levels.
