Bhakti Circle: Nurturing your Heart Workshop with Jai Uttal
May 13, 2023 from 4 to 7 pm PST
Lotus Land Yoga SF
1360 Valencia Street
San Francisco, CA 94110
Jai Uttal invites you to sit together, sing together and explore together the world of Bhakti Yoga, the Yoga of Love through Chanting, Talking, Story Telling, Japa and Lullaby.
In this intimate and spacious afternoon, we will connect to our devotional hearts, and reflect on how this connection ripples outward to all of our relationships and the flow of life.
The simple practices of Bhakti Yoga enliven the well of emotions within us and awaken the long forgotten memories of Divine Love that live in the DNA of every being.
Through the practice of Kirtan we explore, express, and share the deepest caverns of our souls and, ultimately, find the eternal spring of love.
Jai Uttal is a grammy nominee, kirtan artist, multi-instrumentalist, and ecstatic vocalist. He is considered a pioneer in the world music community with his combined influences from India and American rock and jazz. Jai has been leading, teaching, and performing World Music and kirtan—the ancient yoga of chanting or singing to God—around the world for close to 50 years, creating a safe environment for people to open their hearts and voices.
He grew up in New York City and lived in a home filled with music. Jai began studying classical piano at the age of seven, and later learned to play old-time banjo, harmonica, and guitar. At age 17, he heard Indian music for the first time, and two years later moved to California and studied under the famous sarod player, Ali Akbar Khan. Jai later began taking regular pilgrimages to India, living among the wandering street musicians of Bengal, and singing with the kirtan wallahs in the temple of his guru, Neem Karoli Baba.
Jai has emerged as a leading influence in the Bhakti tradition. He considers bhakti to be the core of his musical and spiritual life.
