Bhakti Bliss in Costa Rica

Bhakti Bliss in Costa Rica

Bring in the New Year with Nubia Teixeira and Jai Uttal on their 15th annual bhakti celebration in a wave of prayer and song with the joy-filled and healing practices of chanting and Yoga! We will deeply explore these ancient devotional expressions, weaving together our hearts and voices in celebration and invocation of the Divine.

 

During this week we will inquire how the body, the heart, and the mind support and complement each other in our journey towards the realm of infinite love and grace.  Nubia will lead the asana and pranayama sessions, which will anchor us in our bodies and open us to the meditative practice of calling to the divine. Jai and Vish will lead us in the ancient practice of Kirtan, or chanting, the heart and soul of devotional yoga. Together they will guide us in a heart- opening adventure through breath, movement and sacred sound, blending these traditions in a deep and playful way.

 

Bhakti Yoga is the path of personal relationship with Spirit, with God, with Goddess; a relationship that includes all the flavors and moods of the human heart. In the journey of Bhakti our emotions become the fuel to reconnect us with the Divine and, in so doing, to find healing and wholeness within ourselves. It promises to leave you inspired and ready for 2018!

My Profile & Retreats
Jai Uttal
Jai Uttal’s eclectic East-meets-West sound has put his music at the forefront of the world-fusion movement. Jai’s musical roots embrace everything from the hillbilly music of the Appalachian Mountains to the strains of Bengali street singers, from the rhythms and melodies of ancient India to contemporary electric rock sounds. Having travelled extensively in India, where he met many beautiful saints and singers, as well as his guru, Neem Karoli Baba, Bhakti Yoga became his personal path.   Jai has been teaching and leading kirtans around the world for more than 40 years, creating a safe environment for people to open their hearts and voices. He calls Kirtan his "soul support system" and still marvels at how his deeply private spiritual practice became a very public profession. Jai's sixth CD, Mondo Rama, r... Read More
