ANNUAL BAHAMAS TRIP FOR MAHA SIVARATRI !
All-night celebration at Sivananda Yoga Retreat
with Krishnan Namboodiri and Krishna Das !
Friday February 21
Meet us at the Yoga Retreat, an island paradise with crystal-clear water and pure white sand, a true sanctuary of peace and natural beauty located on one of the most beautiful beaches in the world.
On Friday night, join us for Maha Sivaratri, one of the most important events of the yogic calendar. Sivaratri is an all-night celebration of Siva, the aspect of the Divine that destroys the old and negative to make way for new creation. We will celebrate with homas (fire ceremonies) and pujas (rituals) conducted by Krishnan Namboodiri, tantric priest from South India, all against the backdrop of continuous Siva chants from dusk until dawn. The celebration will end with a sunrise feast.
This year, we are excited that Krishna Das will be participating in the Maha Sivaratri chanting. A disciple of Indian sage Neem Karoli Baba, Krishna Das layers traditional Hindu kirtan with accessible melodies and modern instrumentation. He has become a worldwide icon and the best-selling western chant artist of all time.
Register early as this event will definitely sell out. Make your own travel arrangements and stay for as little or as long as you like. For information about the Yoga Retreat — accomodations, rates, etc. — go to sivanandabahamas.org
