Recommended Text: Exquisite Love: Heart-Centered Reflections on the Narada Bhakti Sutra, by Bill Mahony.
Heart-centered spiritual practice is a gateway to an experience of love: for the world, life, others and ourselves. In lecture, discussion & asana, we will study ancient teachings that can help us stay present to the divine love abiding within us during this complex and challenging modern era.
Bill Mahony will lead us in satsanga-based discussion on the wisdom of the Bhakti Sutra followed by “Devotion in Motion”, asanas infused with life-affirming, heart-centered themes from the Bhakti Sutra with Todd Norian. Join us for the collaboration of these two masterful, heart-awakened yogis as they guide you home to your heart through the empowering teachings of love and devotion. Exquisite and revelatory morning meditation and pranayama included.
