Altar of Love Weekend Encinitas

  • Friday, September 2, 2022 - Sunday, September 4, 2022
  • Ananda Encinitas & the Temple of Joy, Encinitas, CA
Altar of Love Weekend Encinitas

It seems we are all in spiritual warrior training to keep the heart open, heal, awaken and grow.

For so many years I was struggling to find meaning. When I found yoga and kirtan, everything changed. My connection with myself, others and the divine blossomed. Inspired by these profound shifts in my consciousness, I created the Altar of Love Weekend to help others like you:

  • Heal your heart
  • Bring more meaning and purpose
  • De-stress
  • Inspire your devotion
  • Open your voice and sing
  • Become more radiant, healthy and joyful
  • Celebrate with community

My inspiration led me to be a touring artist and teacher since 2011. I’ve recorded over 15 chant and heart songs albums, do 100-200 events each year and most recently created the Modern Bhakti Yoga Academy, a platform with online courses. 

I am thrilled to be sharing these exclusive offerings with you Sept. 2nd-4th at the Temple of Joy in Encintas.. The weekend schedule is below. All the events can be attended individually or as a package. I highly recommend signing up for the weekend package to experience the full benefits.

Yoga Teacher Bio:
Ananda Das has a passion for sharing his love for devotion (bhakti) and the yogic practices. With over 15 years on the yogic path, he brings a devotional depth to his offerings which imparts a transmission and empowerment for the diety in his classes/workshops.
Ananda had been a dedicated practitioner and teacher of Kundalini Yoga as taught by the Kundalini Research Institute since 2006. In April 2020, life shifted his trajectory and he fell in love with the Sattva Yoga tradition.  He completed a 300hr teacher training along with an 18 day, 60 hour course on the Bhagavad Gita just outside Risikesh, India.  Both were taught by Anand Mehrotra, a himalayan yogic master who has profoundly inspired him on the yogic path.
In addition to his BA in international and sustainable business, he has a minor in East Asian Religions and studied yogic philosophy at the University of Oregon and the Dharmalaya (2003-2009).
 
Cacao Ceremony Bio:
Ananda has been leading cacao ceremonies since 2010.  While traveling in Guatemala in 2009, Ananda had a profound experience with the spirit of cacao. He went on to connect with a cacao shaman in Lake Atitlan who shared with him his way of holding cacao ceremonies and how to connect with the spirit of cacao. Upon Ananda’s return to the states, he began to share ceremonial space with this special cacao he brought back from Guatemala.  Since 2010, he has shared over 100 ceremonies both nationally and internationally and even led a cacao ceremony intensive at the Esalen Institute.
