“For me, the entire Altar of Love weekend was brimming with heart-felt devotion and a deep opening to the divine. Jaya Lakshmi and Ananda gave wisdom that comes from both study and life experience. The kirtan, yoga, dance and prayer were truly a group communion at the altar of love!” Ana Holub (Forgiveness Counselor, author and creatress of Clear Path to Peace)
~Chants and Heart Songs Concert~
Jaya Lakshmi and Ananda offer a combination of kirtan (call and response singing), bhajan (devotional hymns) and original singer/song writer compositions in the languages of English, Sanskrit and Gurbani. Alternating guitar, harmonium, keyboard, bansuri flutes and vocal weaving, they create a profound healing and balanced sound current (Naad) brimming with bhakti (devotion). They are known for their powerful blend of modern and ancient soundscapes that touches the heart and invokes a meditative and connected state.
“Jaya Lakshmi and Ananda’s tremendous and rare gift of devotion, song, and talent comes through their music so effortlessly. It affects my soul in such a deep way. When I listen to their music, my heart opens instantly, and I know that their voice, music, and presence will bring thousands into a space of deep happiness and healing.” Simrit Kaur (Kundalini Mantra Singer)
~Sattva Kundalini Yoga Journey~
Sattva Yoga is an ever-evolving and inclusive practice of meditation, kriya, asana, movement, pranayama, radical aliveness, and timeless wisdom. It includes ancient yogic techniques as well as current evolutionary practices to create a clear path for the individual to experience a full, healthy, abundant, and joyous life.
~Cacao Ceremony and Sound Healing~
Since ancient times cacao has been used ceremonially to connect with that infinite presence of love. Jaya Lakshmi and Ananda’s cacao ceremonies and sound healings are a coming together to open the heart, express creatively and rejoice with the spirit of the cacao. Accompanied by their weaving heart songs, it will be a time to express gratitude for the cacao spirit and allow for that spirit to blossom infinite possibilities within you. The sonic sound healing journey with include vocals, flutes, keyboard and guitar.
The cacao that will be used is a very special type that a cacao shaman selected personally for it’s energetic qualities. It comes from Guatemala, the heartland of the Mayan people who have used it for millennia. The ceremony will be a wonderful time to learn about cacao’s origins, history, heath benefits and energetic/spiritual qualities. Let’s celebrate a new way of coming together and rejoicing in the love of the infinite spirit. Melt into a unique ceremony that will expand your heart to new levels.
~Singing and Mantra Workshop~
In this workshop participants will explore the practice of singing mantra and bhakti yoga-the path of love and devotion. Singing together, participants will connect with sacred songs and mantras in Sanskrit (the ancient prayer language of India), Punjabi (Kundalini mantras), and English. Participants will learn translations, meanings about various deities, and also be lead in guided visualizations for deepening their bhakti practice. Jaya Lakshmi and Ananda also share their own insights into the healing effects of these sacred chants.
