Workshop Details

Do you feel the transformational sparks of spiritual awakening that are spreading rapidly on the planet today? There are many paths and practices available to support seekers in this ultimate quest. One such path is the Way of Love. Sacred musician, best-selling author, and inspirational teacher David Newman (also known as Durga Das), has made it a life's passion to illuminate the practice of opening your heart and loving unconditionally as a vehicle for spiritual awakening. Journey into the wisdom of your heart through kirtan (mantra chanting) and the ageless teachings on the Path of Love, or bhakti, as it is known in the yogic tradition. Come and experience how embracing love, fearlessly and wholeheartedly, can lead to spiritual awakening and fulfill your search for deeper meaning, greater happiness, and a higher truth! All are welcome.
