Goa, @Bamboo Yoga Retreat, Patnem Beach
Jivamukti Yoga Retreat & Kirtan Camp
with Nadine & Petros & Visvambhar
Jai Jai Jai…Jivamukti Kijai!
Be part of this unique experience, diving deep into the practices and techniques of Kirtan and Bhakti.
We will learn chants, and how to play simple melodies and rhythms on instruments. We will express our voices from both traditional Indian and western perspectives. Both Visvambhar Seth (visvambhar.com) and Petros Haffenrichter (pax108.com) have immersed themselves in the practices of Sacred Sound (Kirtan) and have been sharing and teaching these methods for decades.
You will have the chance to pre-order your own instruments with special camp-discount from our personal instrument-builders in India, so you can learn and practice on your personal instruments.
We will practice rhythms on hand cymbals (kartals) and hand drums (Mridanga/Dholak). We will learn how to sing and lead a simple chant on the Harmonium. And we will explore the deep energies and meanings behind the mantras. No prior musical experience is necessary. And for those who have some musical experience, we will offer special advanced coaching.
According to all the greatest teachers, Kirtan is the ‘safest, easiest and fastest’ means to perfect self realization. The practices of this tradition have become accepted by many who seek for the integrity and power of a personal and collective devotional mood. It is a life changing experience which is available to all through the traditional practices of Bhakti Yoga such as Kirtan.
South Goa boasts lots of natural beauty. The location where we stay (Bamboo Yoga Retreat) offers comfortable accommodations, nourishing food, and friendly locals. We will nurture our body, mind and soul through Yoga practice and meditation.
We will be at the right place at the right time.
Daily Jivamukti yoga classes, meditation, pranayama, bhakti and Kirtan await you. Excellent vegetarian/vegan fullboard, a shared Goodbye candlelight dinner on the beach and a boat trip.
Time for a good book and a Chai? Find it on your own veranda with a hammock in your lovingly furnished, airy bamboo hut.
