About The Workshop:
Krishna Das’s Workshops are like mini-retreats of about 3 hours. Along with chanting, Krishna Das shares stories about his eperiences on the path. Workshops with Krishna Das include: Chanting (call and response) with musical accompaniment, stories about his Guru, readings from spiritual traditions, teachings, and discussions about life and the spiritual path. This forum provides the opportunity for Q & A in an intimate setting.
Krishna Das first traveled to India in 1970 where he met his guru, Neem Karoli Baba (Maharaj-ji). Through Maharaj-ji, he was introduced to the devotional practice of Kirtan. He has released several CD’s and now leads kirtan and chanting workshops around the world, helping us to turn within and find our own inner understanding. Krishna Das has also been studying Buddhist meditation for over 30 years. Sharing his heart through music and chanting is the basis of Krishna Das’s own spriritual work; his way of serving the divine within himself and others.

Krishna Das Bio:
Krishna Das has been recording albums of traditional Indian Chants and song since 1996 and has been on a spiritual journey his entire life. Born and raised on Long Island, New York, Krishna Das has been at the forefront of utilizing western melodic sensibilities in Hindu kirtan (chanting) and satsang while maintaining its traditional base and structure. He is a master of infusing the Indian tradition with modern influences. While staying true to the path of Bhakti, or Devotional Yoga, his music is energized with modern grooves and melodies to create soulful chanting that is eminently accessible to western hearts.
