ANNUAL NON-RESIDENTIAL SUMMER BHAKTI KIRTAN CAMP!
Jai Uttal and assistant teachers Daniel Paul and Nubia Teixeira
Our 14th Summer Kirtan Camp will be held at Roco Fairfax, a beautiful dance/performing arts studio that will become JAI’S HOUSE OF BHAKTI for this week in August.
You will enjoy good company while dedicating hours of singing kirtan and learning the skills to share this ancient practice with others.
About the training:
This training is for those who aspire to lead Kirtan; those who wish to enhance their Yoga teaching with chanting; and those who simply wish to immerse themselves in the vast ocean of Bhakti.
In this workshop we will share some of the many tools that we use in our Bhakti practices. Our hope is that everyone will leave this retreat with the inner experience and knowledge that we are all able to dive into this world of devotion and sing and share our hearts with others.
Subjects to be covered:
Kirtan – As the essential practice of Bhakti, Kirtan will be the main focus of this training.
