Bhakti is the yoga of the heart—the yoga of falling into love itself. Through spiritual practice, the yogi becomes the lover, and the divine becomes the beloved. This intimate relationship is universal and timeless, healing and transformational. What differentiates Bhakti Yoga from other devotional, heart-centered practices, are the elements of culture and tradition. Bhakti Yoga has roots that go back thousands of years, and practices that include not only kirtan/chanting, but also storytelling, ceremony, dance, poetry, art, and more. An integral part of Sanatana Dharma (Hinduism), Bhakti Yoga has historically touched (and been touched by) Sufis, Jains, Buddhists, Sikhs, and Christians as well.
This 100 hour intensive is focused on traditional teachings and practices to deepen our sense of intimacy with the divine, so that our lives are aligned with love. The five 20 hour modules can be taken a la carte, all together, or accessed online. Each module will shed light on different elements of the culture and tradition of Bhakti Yoga. Guest teachers will join us from time to time to illuminate our subjects and broaden our view. All are welcome—no particular talent, experience or background is required.
For those enrolled in the online offering, you will receive information directly from Prajna detailing where and how to access video content. Please direct all online and technical questions to Prajna’s assistant, Shelly Dorai-Raj.
