Awakening Through Love

Oct 23 - 25, 2015 Begins in 1 month
with David Newman

Spiritual awakening is spreading rapidly, and many diverse paths and practices are responsible for supporting seekers in this ultimate quest. One such path is the Way of Love, or bhakti, as it is known in the yogic tradition. Sacred chant artist, author, and inspirational teacher David Newman (Durga Das) has made it a life's passion to illuminate the path of love as a vehicle for spiritual awakening. In this workshop, we will explore what it means to be spiritually awake, and how you can get there through the practice of opening your heart and loving unconditionally as a way of life.
