Spend a weekend immersed in the bhakti tradition of heart-centered practices, including chanting. We’ll explore the joyful and meditative journey of singing to the Divine through call-and-response, which creates a bridge between the individual and the eternal, opening the heart and welcoming the spirit. By singing these prayers, we unite our voices and join in a stream of consciousness and devotion that has been flowing for centuries.
Join Janet Stone and friends for an exploration of bhakti/devotion. We’ll chant, chant, chant and drink in the wisdom of many a guest musician who will share their experience and interpretation of bhakti.

We will explore:
• Mantra and meaning
• How to lead chanting
• Basic harmonium skills
• Stories of the deities/aspects of the self we invoke through chanting
• What devotion means in our own lives
• Expression through sound and voice
• English translations of Sanskrit chants
• Intention and sound

Each day will include a morning practice with musical accompaniment, followed by discussion, sharing, and lots of chanting.

Janet Stone’s studentship began at 17 under the meditation teachings of Prem Rawat. His reverence for simplicity and finding joy in the rise and fall of life live on in her practice and teaching today. In 1996, she traveled to India, the birthplace of her grandfather, and became dedicated to the path of yoga. Janet blends the alchemy of her own practice with decades of studentship. She aspires not to teach but to allow the practice to emanate from her, letting awareness blend with movement and breath. Based in San Francisco, she leads immersions, retreats, workshops and more.
