Kirtan Concert with David Newman (Durga Das)
$18/advance; $22/day of show

Dear Community ~ Due to the illness of David’s mother, he is needing to cancel most of his California tour. David regrets this deeply and is very sorry for not being able to be with us in September. Of course, at this time it is important that his Bhakti practice is in serving and caring for his mother. David would like to reschedule with us at a later time.  He is maintaining two events in CA; Bhakti Fest and a weekend at Eslaen. These are both weekend events and several weeks apart. He will fly home in between them to be with his mother.

Christine Tulis CourtyardTriYoga Therapeutics is a healing, energizing and transformative practice. Supported postures are held for long periods with rhythmic breathing and mindful awareness. The deep relaxation releases stress in body and mind and promotes healing. The healing and angelic music of Christine will open your heart and you will experience blissful waves of inner peace.
“Yoga focuses on increasing prana (qi, chi) as health is connected with the steady flow of this life force. A holistic approach is at the core of TriYoga Therapeutics. The healing power of prana responds to this natural surrender of body. It is where asana and yoga nidra merge. Alpha brain waves
 and deeper meditative states are experienced as awareness expands.” Yogini Kaliji
