Join Sitaram Dass for a deep and ecstatic night of kirtan with Josh Polich on tabla and other musicians to be announced. Kirtan is a practice of bhakti yoga, or the yoga of love and devotion towards God. As it says in Be Here Now, “The way bhakti works is you just love until you and the Beloved become One.” It is the call-and-response chanting of the various names of God/Goddess from the ancient Sanskrit language. All of these Names point to the deepest reaches of our own heart space where our True Nature resides.
There is a language which predates all the known historical languages, a language composed not of words but of pure Sound-Vibrations.

Knowing this language, the Ancient Warriors of the Dawn of Time understood all Nature and acquired many powers.

Conscious connected breathing, or breathwork, is a modality of self-realization. Our quality of breathing is a reflection of our state of mind in any given moment. Our breathing patterns also reflect how we hold life, how we respond to the imprints of our life experiences. In consciously connected breathing, we begin to feel— with just a brief re-patterning of the breath cycle — to what extent our relationship with our breath is related to our level of consciousness. This isn’t yoga. This isn’t therapy. This isn’t meditation. This doesn’t come from a plant. This is a numinous experience with your breath.
