Save the Date: Kirtan with Shantala Friday October 10th at 7:30pm
Benjy and Heather Wertheimer lead kirtan (sacred chanting) worldwide as the duo Shantala, with soul-stirring vocals, sacred lyrics and exotic instrumentation. The weaving of Benjy’s Indian classical singing and instrumentation with Heather’s soaring vocals is freshly original and profoundly moving. Together they create music with beauty, passion, and reverence. Shantala has performed and recorded internationally with such sacred music luminaries as Krishna Das, Deva Premal & Miten, and Jai Uttal. In summer 2008, they were named as one of the top “Wallahs to Watch” by Yoga + Joyful Living. Kirtan is a celebration of spirit through the chanting of sacred names, carrying the audience into a state of heightened awareness, bliss, and devotion. The audience is invited to participate fully through call-and-response chanting, dance, and meditation. Tickets are $20 in advance/$25 at the door
"I have advanced osteoarthritis and didn't think I would be able to do the poses. I was wrong. The instructors at Big River who have led me on my yoga journey have guided me with such care and compassion. Yoga at Big River has definitely made a positive difference in my mind, body, and spirit."
