Presented by Jeffrey Armstrong, Saul David Raye, Frank Fitzpatrick
In this seminar we will explore how, as modern day Yogis, we can combine the ancient wisdom of Bhakti with the power of music and mantra. By using sound vibration and the expression of purposeful emotion or Bhav, we can find the strength to fulfill our Dharma while simultaneously healing the planet and working for the good of all beings.
In an interactive and collaborative workshop, Vedic Master and Sanskrit Scholar Jeffrey Armstrong joins Music Guru and Social Entrepreneur Frank Fitzpatrick and special guests to demonstrate how ancient wisdom, real life experience, word play and music all dance together to help us understand our own dharma and empower us to joyfully celebrate it through the work we do in the world.
Through Dharmony, we can all work together to create cooperation, compassion, empathy and loving intimacy on an epic scale. Jeffrey Armstrong Western Master of Eastern Wisdom//Author//Speaker//Consultant//Poet//Yogi
