Join Krishna Das for a weekend retreat of yoga, chanting, and devotional heart-opening practices. This is a wonderful opportunity to spend time with a group of dedicated seekers and immerse yourself in practices, teachings, and discussions. The retreat program consists of evening kirtans and afternoon workshops. Kirtans are approximately 2-3 hours of call-and-response chanting with musical accompaniment, and workshops are approximately 3-4 hours of call-and-response chanting, talks about the spiritual path, and a forum for questions and answers. There is the option of registering for three nights (Thursday evening to Sunday morning) or two nights (Friday evening to Sunday morning).
On Saturday, Krishna Das will be joined by Lama Surya Das, who will share his experiences not only as a Buddhist teacher, but also having had Maharaj-ji Neem Karoli Baba’s darshan.
There will be some extended chanting sessions included in the program over the weekend.
