Immerse yourself in the bhakti traditions of chanting and mythology. These traditions create a bridge between the individual and the eternal.
With Janet Stone, explore the many aspects of the “One” through the beautifully woven stories of the deities. These tales, shared over the centuries, reflect timeless themes of our human condition. They help reflect our own stories, especially and curiously in these modern times. Through this practice we see aspects of ourselves revealed through the deity archetypes, and explore how that can assist us in understanding and journeying through our own “hero’s journey”.
Janet’s engrossing story-telling and heartfelt practice of chanting cultivate space for us to reflect on some of our most pivotal moments in life as we begin to own the story of our own life’s journey.
We will explore:
Through story and chanting, we unite our individual voices with all those around us. Together we move with a stream of intention and devotion that has been flowing for centuries.
Each day will include a morning yoga practice with musical accompaniment, followed by discussion, time to write and share, and chanting.
Janet’s studentship began at 17 under the meditation teachings of Prem Rawat. His reverence for simplicity and finding joy in the rise and fall of life live on in her practice and teaching today. In 1996, she traveled to India, the birthplace of her grandfather, and became dedicated to the path of yoga. Janet blends the alchemy of her own practice with decades of studentship. She aspires not to teach but to allow the practice to emanate from her, letting awareness blend with movement and breath. Based in Bali and San Francisco, she leads immersions, retreats, workshops and more.
