Join us as we welcome three-time recording artists, Rob and Melissa Lundsgaard to Revelstoke for a special Bhakti Gathering!

Bhakti Yoga is considered the Yoga of Devotion; the path of the heart. The main emphasis is dwelling on the relationship with the Divine, however one conceives of it, with a loving remembrance of Divine Presence. In practice Bhakti Yoga centers on chanting, singing and internal repetition of Divine name, Kirtan, with faith and devotion.

Kirtan: from the root "Kirt", means to praise or give glory, to communicate, to participate in.
