Awakening the Peace of Our Hearts

May 5 - 6, 2018

We’re so sorry, but this beautiful time with David Newman has to be rescheduled for the fall. Stay tuned and a new date will be arranged as soon as possible.


Using the power of sound and the healing aspects of devotion, David Newman (Durga Das) will guide us on a journey into the art and practice of Kirtan (mantra chanting) and the ancient yet timely path of Bhakti Yoga (the Yoga of Love.) As a chant artist, best selling author, and inspirational teacher, David helps to make this transformational and joyful practice accessible to all. Join us as we uplift the mind and open the heart through chanting, inspirational teachings, meditation, and prayer.

The great Indian Yoga Master Paramhansa Yogananda repeatedly told his students:  “Chanting is Half the Battle.”   

This weekend retreat with David Newman will give all of us a deep experience of that immortal promise.

  • Saturday morning and afternoon 2 hour workshops
  • Saturday evening 2 hour kirtan
  • Sunday morning 2 hour kirtan, blessing and closing ceremony
  • Optional Yoga Classes
  • Delicious vegetarian meals

All are welcome!
