Bhakti Soul Immersion with Seán Johnson & The Wild Lotus Band

Revel like a child in playful storytelling. Mend your heart through song. Deepen your sense of devotion through ritual. Tap into the fluency of your inner muses. Feel asana as a poetic dance of the heart. Float into mellifluous lullaby. All supported by the enchanting sounds of The Wild Lotus Band.

Bhakti is a Sanskrit word that points to the universal human experience of connecting to the mystery of life through the depths of the heart. Many of bhakti’s practices are devotional folk arts like singing, dancing, storytelling, poetry, and ritual that are meant to be accessible for all.

In this special immersion guided by Seán, and accompanied by The Wild Lotus Band (Alvin Young, Gwendolyn Colman, Narada Wise & Chris Rosser), held over 3 half days, we’ll experience the depths of bhakti through enchanting storytelling, live music, heartful singing and kirtan chanting, and an imaginative vinyasa yoga practice that weaves all these elements together. All levels — some experience with asana is recommended. 

In addition to being a musician, Seán Johnson is also a respected yoga teacher and teacher trainer who teaches at conferences and retreat centers internationally. He is the founder of Wild Lotus Yoga in his beloved hometown dubbed "New Orleans’ Home for Heart-Centered Yoga," and Soul School, an interdisciplinary yoga teacher training program that focuses on teaching yoga with skill, heart, and imagination. He has a Master’s degree from The Naropa Institute-Oakland with focus on teaching chant as spiritual practice, apprenticing there with south Indian musician and teacher Russill Paul, author of The Yoga Of Sound. He is the co-curator and coordinator of Putumayo World Music’s yoga music series, and a co-founder of The Auricle Collective – a global community of chant and spiritual musicians. Seán is passionate about his Irish roots and ancestry, a pillar of his spirituality. He co-leads online Celtic Spirituality gatherings and retreats in Ireland each year with his friend, Ireland native Mary Meighan, founder of Celtic Journeys.

In all these roles, Seán relishes creating a playful, tender, brave space for people to open their hearts and voices, and embrace their innate creativity.
