Gayatri Mantra Soundbath

Friday July 5, 12 & 19, 2019 

For the month of July following Yin class, enjoy the sounds of the Gayatri Mantra sung by Bajra.  The Gayatri is a perfectly balanced mantra, yin and yang. The mantra is chanted in its original language, Sanskrit. It is one of the oldest prayers known to humanity: its sentiment is as ancient as light. This prayer appeals to the highest wisdom, to the brilliance of the cosmos, to illuminate a realization of our true nature.

To chant the Gayatri Mantra purifies the chanter.

To listen to the Gayatri Mantra purifies the listener.

time: 7-7:45pm

Summer Kirtan with Erick Herlong & Friends

July 27, 2019 

The word kirtan stems from a Sanskrit root that means to cut through. David Newman (teacher of kirtan) says kirtan is also “a practice for cutting through the idea of separation, for connecting to our hearts and connecting to the moment through sound.”

Please join us for a blissful evening enjoying the Bhakti Yoga practice of Kirtan, a tradition of singing universal mantras in a call and response format. Bhakti yoga is one of the four main yogic paths to enlightenment. Bhakti means “devotion” or “love” and this path contains various practices to unite the bhakta with the divine. One of those practices, Kirtan is the most popular path in the west, as it invites everyone to participate in whatever way feels right for them. It only requires your showing up with an open mind and a joyful spirit. During the Kirtan we will blend our voices to create a deep sense of connection to something greater than ourselves, as we purify our hearts and liberate our souls with this ancient devotional practice.

time: 7-9pm

cost: FREE to all!
