Ways to Attend

Immerse yourself in the ancient way of spiritual practice. Join Shambhavi Sarasvati for a unique opportunity to experience the heart and mind opening fruits of two and a half days of mantra chanting and kirtan. 

kirtan 1 retreat 2015

You will receive and chant mantras from the Vedas and Tantras of India. We will also chant mantras as kirtan and sing kirtans to the Divine Mother, Krishna and Shiva.

Hearts and Minds takes place during Durga Navaratri. The retreat also includes pujas to the Divine Mother.

Shambhavi is a teacher of traditional spiritual practice from the Trika Shaiva and Dzogchen traditions.

Her community, Jaya Kula, has developed a relaxed, open and warm-hearted style of playing kirtan together. We share a wide variety of instruments from India and elsewhere, and we also invite you to bring your own. Shambhavi will lead the mantra chanting. Kirtans are led by anyone who wishes to take a turn leading.

If you want to experience our kirtan before the October retreat, join us twice each week for kirtan at the end of every satsang, Sunday and Wednesday nights at 6:30pm. 159 State St., Portland, ME.
