A Bhakti Yoga and Kirtan Experience
Bhakti Heart Center, San Juan Island, WA
July 1st - 3rd, 2022
Welcome to Camp Hanuman! This three-day Bhakti immersion is a playful and supportive experience, a gathering of like-minded, heart-centered, kirtan-loving humans. We’ll practice all-levels yoga, breathwork, meditation, singing, laughing, storytelling, and lots of kirtan!
For those interested, we’ll have some one-off sessions for kirtan instruction and Q&A. Saturday night we’ll have an open mic for kirtan leading experience and musical collaborations.
Bhakti Heart Center is located on San Juan Island on 10 beautiful acres. We offer our home and these practices to you as a way for us all to remember the Truth and Beauty in our lives. To help us come back to our Center. Our intention is for this to be a healing space you can return to again and again, whether it is this physical space or the home within your own heart.
