Join Prajna and Jennifer for an exciting two-day workshop of listening to stories, bhajans (songs) and mantras about the Hindu Gods and Goddesses while learning how to carve your own relief print of your chosen deity.
In this workshop
- Learn the process of carving a deity stamp from the drawing/tracing stage to the final printing stages.
- Develop an understanding of the characteristics of each deity and which symbols represent them.
- Leave with a small stack of prints made by each of the participants, and a heart swirling with sweetness and devotion.
- Time permitting, we will dive into coloring our original black and white print with some exciting materials.
Come play in the divine practice of Bhakti Art, immerse yourself in the playful stories of this beautiful tradition and become familiar with simple mantras that accompany each of the deities. No printmaking or previous art experience needed – All levels welcome!

Prajna Vieira is a long time practitioner of Bhakti Yoga (the yoga of the heart) and kirtan, a traditional chanting practice. It’s such a significant part of my life that I feel its worth mentioning. I believe that just like posture and breath, sound too is an incredible vehicle of transformation. Over the years I’ve had the good fortune to share this practice internationally, performing regularly with world music pioneer Jai Uttal, as well as with my own ensemble, Mukti, as a duet with yoga music producer Ben Leinbach, and with countless other kirtan artists. I sometimes incorporate this chanting practice into my classes, or I may sing during savasana. Yoga is a multidimensional practice with numerous techniques and traditions to help us heal, grow and examine our relationship with what is. I strive to be true to the traditions of yoga, while embracing innovation and discovery. www.prajnavieira.com.
