KD also talks about his upcoming retreat at Garrison Institute, NY. This popular winter retreat is a great place to dive deep into what KD talks about in this interview. More details HERE

“We’re gonna try and do some longer chanting periods – some chants for a longer period of time. When you do one chant for a longer period of time, you start to come up against boredom, memories, sadness, heaviness, distracted thinking, anxiousness – those thoughts can come up – the idea is to keep singing through it and that breaks a lot of the power those thoughts have over us. Just keep singing through those states of mind as they arise…and as they pass away. As you do that, it tends to be a very purifying experience and lightening of the heart. But no promises!”

  • Linda Boucher says:

    Thank you for sharing the interview. Love the whole Trust In The Heart cd. Each chant is my favorite at the time I’m hearing them. Each of them, the Devi Chant in particular, reaches into my soul and connects my heart to beautiful Love & Light that surrounds and dances with me. I often see Neem Karole Baba’s smile when I hear your chants. Thank you Krishna Das and your beloved Guru for bring this Joy to my life.

  • Sabine Bendixen says:

    My heart opens wide each time I hear KDs voice and the longing for that place in all of us.
    And I so wished I could join the retreat in Garrison next weekend. Not this year but I will follow the call of my heart and
    join the next time! Sending love and light from Germany, Sabine
