Join Krishna Das for this one-day chanting retreat and devotional practice. This is a special opportunity to study with one of the foremost devotional singers in the world.

We spend the morning exploring the spiritual path with group chanting of Hanuman Chalisas with Nina Rao. Guided by Krishna Das in the afternoon, we revel in call-and-response chanting, stories about Das’s beloved guru, Sri Neem Karoli Baba, and discussions about life, with plenty of opportunities for questions and answers.

Sharing his heart through music and chanting is the basis of Das’ devotional practice, his way of serving the divine within himself and others. In this chanting retreat, we can embark on our own devotional journey with him.
