SONGS OF THE HEART
Krishna Das in Concert
Saturday, March 16 at 8 pm
From the first heart-opening sounds of the concert, as the harmonium blends with the unmistakable voice of Krishna Das, something stirs deep within. One knows immediately - this will be a soulful evening. Layering traditional Hindu kirtan with instantly accessible melodies and modern instrumentation, Krishna Das has been called yoga's "rock star."
With a remarkable voice that touches the deepest chord in even the most casual listener, Krishna Das - known to friends, family, and fans as simply KD - has taken call-and-response chanting out of yoga centers and into concert halls. Audience and musicians unite to create a joyous energy of love and devotion. A worldwide icon and the best-selling chant artist of all time, KD has sold over 300,000 records. His "Live Ananda" album has been nominated for a 2012 Grammy for Best New Age Album.
HEART OF DEVOTION
A Workshop with Krishna Das
Sunday, March 17 from 3-6 pm
Join Krishna Das up close in a workshop setting. The renowned musician offers his unique down to earth understanding of the many challenges we all face on the spiritual path. Whether you are at the beginning of your spiritual practice or a lifelong practitioner, Krishna Das offers valuable insights into walking through life with an open heart.
The workshop revolves around questions and interaction from participants. Krishna Das will respond with some of his music, personal reflections about living a life on the path, stories about his Guru, Maharaj-ji, readings from spiritual traditions, and observations on how our practice can help us to develop awareness, removing the obstacles that keep us from connecting to our innate sense of well-being.
