Awakening Bhakti: A Celebration of Divine and Human Love

Jai Uttal

When: 1pm
Where: Jyoti Mandir
200 Coneflower St.
Encinitas, CA
Tickets: $60
Website: www.jyotimandir.com/concerts
Details: Register for both kirtan and workshop and save ($80)!

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 to find healing and wholeness within ourselves. Through singing Kirtan we explore, express and share the deepest caverns of our souls and ultimately find the eternal spring of love.

For everyone who loves and practices Kirtan, Jai will share and demystify some of their secrets particularly the ‘fact’ that with just a little understanding of music and rhythm and a lot of self acceptance we all can sing and lead and share our hearts with others. The practice of chanting, itself, can become our teacher, guiding us home.

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.

Jai Uttal, world renowned musician, will support our inner journey with sacred music and chanting, nourishing our spirits and inviting the qualities of the heart to shine and blossom.

In this beautiful offering Nubia & Jai will share their love for each other and for these ancient practices.

Come and celebrate the life force within and all around with your community !

Omega Institute Winter Program Week One

Jai Uttal, Nubia Teixeria, Joan Halifax Roshi, Richard Leider, Jack Saul, PhD, Annette Knopp, Stephan Rechtschaffen, MD, Steven Michael Pague

Where: Blue Spirit
Nosara
Costa Rica
Website: www.bluespiritcostarica.com
Details: This week at Omega Costa Rica, you can explore a contemporary approach to Buddhism, prepare for the next exciting stage of life, learn to awaken love through chant, or clarify your life-purpose and find ways to become more resilient. You can also rediscover your wholeness through spiritual inquiry, practice healing yoga or qigong, or learn the fundamentals of longevity.

Throughout the week, enjoy a workshop in the morning, try another in the afternoon, or abandon your schedule and head to the beach.

Sample from any or all of the following workshops during Week 1.

Giving Life to Life
Exploring Buddhism & Its Gifts to the West
Joan Halifax Roshi
Join engaged Buddhism advocate and Zen Buddhist teacher and priest, Joan Halifax Roshi, for a contemporary approach to the teachings and practices of Buddhism. Explore two very special teachings—the first on the great paramitas (or perfections) and how bodhisattvas apply their realizations in service to others, and the second on selected koans or enigmatic Zen stories that point to awakening. As always, Joan Halifax Roshi shares her insightful perspective on meditation practice and how to bring these teachings into your daily life.

What’s Next?
The Age of Life Reimagined
Richard Leider
Are you ready to explore your real potential? Transitions can feel overwhelming even to the most successful people. Many of us face an uncharted second half of life and we often end up navigating strange new landscapes without a map. If you are experiencing unexpected life changes or contemplating a transition into a new phase of your life, What’s Next? can help you turn challenges and confusion into possibility and purpose. Led by Richard Leider, coauthor of Repacking Your Bags and The Power of Purpose, you gain the life map, seasoned guidance, and tools to design the next phase of your life and forge connections that will support you in living your life with purpose.

Awakening Bhakti Workshop
A Celebration of Divine & Human Love
Jai Uttal
Celebrate and connect with the divine through bhakti yoga—the yoga of divine love. In the practice of bhakti yoga, kirtan (devotional chanting) becomes our teacher, reconnecting us with spirit and helping us find healing and wholeness within ourselves. Guided by Grammy Award-nominated kirtan artist Jai Uttal, we explore, express, and share the deepest caverns of our souls, and ultimately find the eternal spring of love, service, and surrender.

Nova Yoga
A Healing Practice for Daily Life
Nubia Teixeira
Explore accessible yogic techniques and bring healing into your life through mindful movement, breathwork, and prayer. Pranayama (breathwork) and bhakti yoga (spiritual devotion) are two profound ways to connect with the divine source. While our breath connects our “inner and outer” environments, bhakti yoga creates an inseparable link with spirit throughout our daily life. Breathing, singing, praying, and moving our bodies through asana, we learn to cultivate a nurturing practice to help navigate our everyday life.

Bouncing Back & Bouncing Forward
Transforming Crisis Into Growth
Jack Saul, PhD
Resilience is our capacity to bounce back from challenges and adversity, and to bounce forward to new stages of growth and self-transformation. Learn to tap into numerous sources for greater resilience—in your neurophysiology, body, mind, relationships, culture, spirituality, and physical environment.

The Free Heart™
Annette Knopp
As human beings living in a conditional world, we tend to look outside ourselves for perfect love and acceptance, and we overlook what is already present in the core of our being and heart. Guided by spiritual counselor Annette Knopp, we learn through meditative inquiry and experiential exercises how to rediscover our natural wholeness, befriend ourselves, and use the challenges in our life as a doorway to come home to our true self.

Longevity & Beyond
Living Fully in This Moment
Stephan Rechtschaffen, MD
Physician and cofounder of Omega, Stephan Rechtschaffen, teaches holistic approaches to time, longevity, stress reduction, and well-being. Learn the fundamental basis for vitality and long life while finding fulfillment in the moment. Through lecture, visualization techniques, and mindfulness practices, the author of Timeshifting and coauthor of Vitality and Wellness, shows you how to slow down and come into a more authentic and balanced rhythm of life that is the result of living fully in the present moment.

Waterfall Qigong
Free Fall of the Laughing Stream
Steven Michael Pague
While practicing qigong—using a simple yet profound system of breathwork, mental focus, movement, and stillness—you learn to let go, allowing your life force to flow. Experience the laughing free fall of the mystery of qi (chi) to increase general health and strengthen immune function, while also enhancing intuition, creativity, sexual vitality, and more. Come away with a real sense of the promise of qi and a practical understanding of how to bring these restorative practices into daily life.
