Bhakti Yoga is one of the main yogic paths and deals with spiritual devotion to achieve moksha (liberation). Bhakti Yoga teaches us to see everything in life and nature as a manifestation of the divine. With this understanding of non-duality, the separation between oneself and God is eliminated and the Yogi experiences God in all actions.

In this 2 day workshop, Acharya Hersh Khetarpal will provide a complete understanding of Bhakti Yoga, including both theory and practical matters. Some of these basic questions will be covered:

– What exactly is bhakti?
– What are the different types of bhakti?
– How to cultivate bhakti?
– What is the role of rituals and are they necessary for Bhakti Yoga?
– What are the obstacles on the Bhakti Yoga path and how to overcome them?
– How does Bhakti Yoga relate to Karma Yoga, Jnana Yoga, Hatha Yoga and Raja Yoga?

In addition to 7 hours of teachings, there will be hatha yoga, meditation and kirtan sessions. The program is also designed to allow plenty of break time to enjoy the peaceful outdoors at the Ashram.
