RETREAT WITH PARVATHY BAUL
& DAVID HARSHADA WAGNER
The Fire of Bhakti Retreat will delve into the path of Devotion and explore the qualities of being that we must cultivate to have a dynamic relationship with the Divine.
We will have an intimate group in a beautiful Manhattan yoga studio and a very special chance to not only see Parvathy Ma and hear her sing, sit and chant together, and discuss the teachings in a small group. This is the traditional way of learning. We begin Friday evening and finish Sunday afternoon.

This year’s festival includes the New York premiere of Parvathy Baul, a leading exponent of the mystical Baul sect of West Bengal; Carnatic superstar Sid Sriram; Brazilian percussion legend Cyro Baptista; and master of the Iraqi maqam, Hamid AlSaadi and more. Over the 24 hour period, the audience will also be treated to masters of the sitar, veena, bansuri sarangi, and vocal in the classical raga tradition.

The Sanatan Siddhashram project in Santiniketan (led by Parvathy Baul) is one of the primary supported projects of SACSA which promotes instruction to all in the music/dance/art of indigenous folk and spiritual traditions of Bengal.
Parvathy Baul is a singer and spiritual teacher in the Baul tradition from Bengal, India. The Baul path combines traditional yoga, song and music, reverence for the feminine, and a fierce opposition to the caste system.
Parvathy is renowned for both her extraordinary performances and her profound understanding of the spiritual path. She is the lineage holder of the revered singer-guru Sri Sanatan Das Thakur Baul.
Parvathy is committed to providing new opportunities to women in India and around the world to engage in spiritual and creative practice.
