Kirtan is an ancient form of mantra meditation, a component of bhakti-yoga (the yoga of devotion), which has the power to open and purify the heart. This chanting, accompanied by musical instruments and rhythmic drumming, brings the audience to its feet in the joy of singing, clapping, and dancing with pure devotion. The heartfelt expression of kirtan can induce profound states of meditation, bliss, and esctasy. You will not be able to resist the urge to join in!

Golden Age Kirtan has been practicing and teaching kirtan for many years in the bhakti-yoga tradition. Their deep love of music, with its vast potential for expressing and developing pure devotion, has inspired them to use kirtan as a means to share this devotional treasure with seekers throughout the world. They see kirtan as the universal song of all cultures seeking spiritual understanding, and they feel privileged to have the opportunity to share ecstatic kirtan everywhere they go.

‘an existential rock and soul musical’

‘An audience-immersive concert presentation of Caren Tackett’s original musical.’

Audience: upon entering the space, you have left life as you know it.
You are now a part of a soul
collective called The Blaze.

The setting: a seemingly random purgatorial portal; are you in it or are you of it?? The house band – ‘Creatrix, Great Mother of All Things’ – is Deity of this alternate dimension. Through several musical dialects including rock, funk, gospel & blues, Creatrix takes you, The Blaze, on a reincarnative journey of interconnected life cycles and souls: From a witch trial, to a slave plantation, to the occupation of Alcatraz. The more the connection is realized, the more evolved this soul collective becomes….and the more Blue.

What is Soul Coaching?

What is Soul Coaching?

with John Davidson

Saturday, December 3rd • Noon to 2pm


Author John Davidson will present a free two-hour introduction and demonstration of his unique fusion approach to soul coaching.

Davidson will be talking about his newest book ‘Breaking with Belief, Reclaiming the Garden’, which presents a detailed view of soul coaching and the construct from which it works.

John’s technique arises out of thirty years of meditation practice and fifteen years work with Peruvian plant medicine shamanism and Q’ero mysticism integrated with more than ten years of cranial/sacral practice.

His coaching teaches soul skills:

• Shifting identity from the body, mind, and personality to the soul;
Holding soul in the heart
• Using soul to create the sense of safety in the body upon which a soulmated relationship between body and soul depends
• Soul-journeying in the timeline of the body to heal the body’s wounds
• Using the sensuality of the body to activate the skill of knowing that permits the soul to sense its purpose day to day in a rapidly
changing world.

Join John to discover whether your soul resonates with his simple technique and whether this process would be a valuable addition to your client practice.
