- The 3 Modes of Material Nature
- Reincarnation

Teacher, performer, counter-cultural icon, lover of God:
Bhagavan Das is as rich and manifold as Existence itself

Bhagavan Das is one of the last living cultural icons of the 60′s. As Ram Das’s mentor (author of Be Here Now) he ushered in the New Age Spiritual Movement being the first Kirtan Artist in America. His groundbreaking album “Ah” (1971), produced by Jimi Hendrix’s manager Michael Jeffrey, was the first World Music album from Electric Ladyland. Bhagavan Das has also toured with Allen Ginsberg, opened for the Grateful Dead and sang with Bob Dylan.

Bhagavan Das’s rare and sacred offering to this world is like a singing open heart heralding the Guru’s Grace through the vehicle of Sound.

Release your inner blocks

Healing Breathwork is a tool for healing, and clearing old patterns within ones body. Learn how to use your breath for emotional release, mental clarity, and physical freedom.

Sid’s Healing Breathwork is a powerful approach to self-exploration and healing that integrates insights from modern consciousness research, transpersonal discovery, and spiritual practice. The process itself uses very simple means: it combines natural baby’s breathing with evocative music in a comfortable setting. With the eyes closed and lying on a mat, each person uses their own breath and the music in the room to tap into deeper a consciousness.

This experience is appropriate for everyone and will leave you with clarity, inner peace and connection to yourself.
Sid McNairy will be your lead guide for this session, who has countless hours studying Holotropic and transgressional breathwork under the direct supervision and teachings of Grandmother Morningstar, who was a direct student of founder of holotropic breathwork Stanley Grof’s for years.

Space is limited. Sign up today!

Cost: $35 pre-register / $45 day of the workshop
