Healing The Heart – A Daylong Immersion In Bhakti Yoga

Jai Uttal, Swami Ramananda and Nubia Teixeira

When: 10am-5pm
Where: Integral Yoga Institute San Francisco
770 Dolores Street
San Francisco, CA
Tickets: $90 in advance, $100 at the door. Register here.
Website: www.integralyogasf.org
Details: Bhakti Yoga is path of personal, loving relationship with the Divine, as He or She manifests in every molecule of creation. It is an inner journey of surrender, powerful emotions and deep practice, not for the faint of heart. For as we explore the interior landscapes of our souls we quickly realize that there are no maps and our only guide is the very longing of our deepest selves to meet our true Beloved. We make mistakes, take wrong turns, but none of it matters as we sing and passionately call out to that infinite source of Love…..
Please come and join Swami Ramananda, Nubia Teixeira and Jai Uttal for a day of devotional exploration. Let’s all join hands and hearts and help each other in our quest for Spirit, in our in our seemingly endless voyage to the land of love.

Program runs 10am – 5pm
Schedule: 10-12:00pm Swami Ramananda: discussion, devotional meditation and puja
12:00-1:00: Vegetarian lunch
1:00-2:40: Nubia Teixeira: pranayama, mudra and devotional dance
3:00-5:00: Jai Uttal: Kirtan

PRANAYAMA & KIRTAN with Nubia & Jai.

Pranayama and Kirtan are two practices that were given to us by the kind and wise ancient sages as a way for us to connect with the divine source thru our physical and emotional bodies. Our breath is one of the most palpable links between the “seen” and the “invisible” worlds. It is the connection between our “inner and outer” environments, and a thread between the mundane and the sacred.

The path of Bhakti Yoga is the path of personal relationship with the divine; a way to create an inseparable link with ‘spirit’ throughout our daily lives, as we offer all that we are and all that we do towards the “Beloved” (God or Goddess).
Breathing and singing are so connected to each other. Breathing and singing are a way to relate to the divine and to the world around us through our hearts and our subtle bodies.

When we inhale we are receiving the light and the truth of the Sacred Beings; when we exhale, or sing, we are offering our light and truth to the Sacred Source and to all beings.

When we inhale, we are healing; when we exhale or sing, we are expressing the feelings and emotions are arising in that very moment.

When we inhale, we are nourishing our body of energy and spirit; when we exhale or sing, we are nurturing others thru our ultimate prayer/wish that all Beings should experience peace, love and happiness.

So, please, breath consciously and sing your heart out for your benefit and for the benefit of all living creatures.

When: 7pm
Where: Angelico Hall
Dominican University
50 Acacia Ave.
San Rafael, CA 94901
Tickets: $45-$100. Buy tickets here.
Website: http://joanjaiccs.brownpapertickets.com
Details: Folk music legend Joan Baez and world-fusion music pioneer Jai Uttal join forces in a benefit performance for Cascade Canyon School on Mother’s Day at the accoustically delightful, historical Angelico Hall at Dominican Univeristy in San Rafael. Cascade Canyon is a progressive, independent K-8 school serving families in Marin County from its campus in Fairfax, California. Proceeds will support the school’s innovative arts and science programs.

Joan Baez is one of the world’s musical forces whose influence is incalculable—marching on the front line of the civil rights movement with Dr. Martin Luther King Jr., inspiring Vaclav Havel in his fight for a Czech Republic, singing on the first Amnesty International tour, and standing alongside Nelson Mandela when the world celebrated his 90th birthday in London’s Hyde Park. She brought the Free Speech Movement into the spotlight, took to the fields with Cesar Chavez, and organized resistance to the war in Southeast Asia Forty years later she saluted the Dixie Chicks for their courage to protest war. Her earliest recordings fed a host of traditional ballads into the rock vernacular, before she unselfconsciously introduced Bob Dylan to the world in 1963. She focused awareness on songwriters ranging from Woody Guthrie, Dylan, Phil Ochs, Richard Farina, and Tim Hardin, to Kris Kristofferson and Mickey Newbury, to Dar Williams, Richard Shindell, Steve Earle and many more.

Grammy nominated Jai Uttal is a pioneer in the world music community with his eclectic “East-meets-West” sound. His music offers a mix of reggae, ska, and samba rhythms as a backdrop for call and response, dance oriented Kirtan. His twenty year recording career includes studies with the legendary Ali Akbar Khan and treks into multi-cultural world music, avant-garde jazz, electronic rock and traditional Indian Kirtan. His recordings with the Sounds True label have become staples of the yoga-practicing community and world music lovers.

Cascade Canyon School offers a rich academic program steeped in critical thinking, creativity, and the joy of learning, in a small school setting. To learn more visit www.cascadecanyon.org.

Rasa Lila – Kirtan and Yoga

Jai Uttal and Nubia Teixeira

Where: Esalen Institute
Highway 1
Big Sur, CA
Tickets: $405–$1,750 (based on accommodation type). Register here.
Website: www.esalen.org
Details: Rasa Lila, the “dance of divine love,” refers to the ecstasy that arose in the hearts of Krishna’s most intimate devotees, the Gopis of Vrindavan, who, upon hearing the sound of their beloved’s flute, snuck away from their households to the forest to dance with Krishna under the full moon. This weekend, through kirtan and Bhakti yoga, we will explore our own dance of divine love.

Bhakti yoga is a path of personal relationship with Spirit — with God, with Goddess, with a divine, connective force. 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.

Nubia Teixeira will lead asana, mudra, and pranayama, which will anchor us in our bodies and open us to the meditative practice of calling to the Divine. Jai Uttal will lead the group in kirtan (sacred chanting), which is the heart of devotional yoga. Together, Nubia and Jai will guide participants in a heart-opening adventure through breath, movement, and sacred sound, blending these traditions in a deep and playful way. Please bring a yoga mat.
