Bhakti Fest Day 2

Kirtan, Kirtan, Kirtan. I had all good intentions of attending at least one class today, but the music grabbed me and held me captive. Or should I say, released my soul.

Saul David Raye was unexpectedly great and had my body up and moving, especially with his version of “People Get Ready”. When that was performed, the people in the crowd were joined together. I had really wanted to take his class, but the kirtan ran so late that Jaya Lakshmi, who was one of my main reasons for attending, went on at the same time as Saul’s class. So I stayed for the music and was transfixed. Lakshmi literally has the voice of an angel. I found myself moving into asanas just following her music. Then I realized at one point I had entered a spontaneous meditation. So transforming. Wade Morissette played a shorter set than expected, but all my favorites. Sunday I am definitely taking class. Really.

I can’t say enough about the kirtan. It was moving, relaxing, invigorating, heart filling …. so many things all at once.

And … I got my first henna tattoo! So did Angel & Kristi.
