Every heart has a song to sing. When that song is offered with love and devotion, we invoke the spirit of Bhakti: the yoga of love and devotion.  The ancient path of Bhakti yoga draws on Kirtan (call and response singing), japa (mantra recitation), prayer, meditation, and other art forms to awaken the heart. The sweet, gentle cacao spirit serves as a gateway to these heart-opening practices. Cacao has been used for thousands of years in a ceremonial way to open our hearts and to encourage us to live more heart-centered, purposeful lives. As we awaken the heart, we find greater meaning in our lives and connect to the divinity that is within us and all around us. In this workshop, we devote ourselves to sacred time for soul nourishment which includes a cacao ceremony, call and response singing, gentle movement, and other fun Bhakti practices that celebrate the divine in all it's forms.  No prior musical experience is required and you do not have to consider yourself a singer to participate and enjoy.
