Kirtan, Bhakti Yoga, Nada Yoga, Gong Yoga
I offer workshops and facilitate at retreats, in the following areas:
Kirtan is a devotional practice in Hinduism and Sikhism, involving group singing of sacred mantras or hymns accompanied by musical instruments. Participants chant and sing to connect spiritually, seeking inner peace and devotion to their chosen deity or the divine. It fosters a sense of community and reverence.
Bhakti yoga is one of the spiritual paths in Hinduism, emphasizing the practice of devotion and love towards a chosen deity or the divine. It involves deep emotional attachment, prayer, chanting, and acts of service to cultivate a loving relationship with the divine. The goal is spiritual union and liberation through love and devotion.
Nada yoga is a branch of yoga that focuses on the use of sound and music as a means of spiritual awakening and self-realization. It involves meditation on the inner and outer sounds, including chanting, music, and the subtle vibrations within the body. Through this practice, practitioners seek to transcend the physical realm and attain higher states of consciousness and unity with the divine.
Gong yoga is a unique form of yoga that incorporates the use of gongs, specifically large, resonant gongs, as a central element in the practice. During a gong yoga session, participants typically lie down in a relaxed position while the gongs are played in a therapeutic and meditative manner. The vibrations and sound frequencies produced by the gongs are believed to have a profound impact on the body and mind, promoting relaxation, stress relief, and deep meditation. Gong yoga is often used to enhance the overall yoga experience and promote a state of inner peace and well-being.
