After yoga, join Nina in chanting the sublime Hanuman Chalisa’, followed by a workshop with Krishna Das, where he will share his experiences on the spiritual path, with time for questions, as well as a more intimate call-and-response chanting with this legendary master of Kirtan.
There is the option to join the full weekend retreat, or simply rock up (and rock out!) at the evening Kirtan sessions, or both from 7.30pm – 10.00pm. Being swept up in chanting alongside others reminds us that we are all connected, and allows us forget our individual troubles and focus on the here and now.
As Krishna Das explains: ‘Chanting is a way of getting in touch with yourself. It’s an opening of the heart and letting go of the mind and thoughts. It deepens the channel of grace, and it’s a way of being present in the moment
‘The chanting just hits you and you want to be part of it,’ Krisha Das promises. ‘That’s the point of this whole thing. That’s what cuts through all the bullshit. You get lit up. You don’t have to know what it means’
You can expect magnetic chanting, his own unique and electrifying rock n roll sensibility, heartfelt devotion and a profound celebration of being alive. The urban retreat and Kirtan will be hosted by B&L Kramer and triyoga and takes place at The Institute of Education.
