Level 1 Online Kirtan Training with Jai Uttal

Episode 1: Homecoming - Build your devotional foundation
Let us explore the deepest chambers of our hearts, the bubbling wells of long forgotten emotions, and the little fires that need to be tended, through the ancient practices of Bhakti, or Devotional Yoga. We all know how easy it is to lose touch with that precious jewel within, but through the practices of Bhakti, particularly the singing of mantras, we can nurture the return path home.

Episode 2: Sanctuary
In this episode we will explore the practice of saying and singing the names of God and Goddess, and creating a sacred space within our hearts and in our homes. Learn Radharani Ki Jai on harmonium and guitar, or focus on the vocal alone.

Episode 3: Love and Longing
This episode is entitled “Love and Longing” which are, Jai believes, the two main touch stones of Bhakti, of devotion, of relationship with God, Goddess and our own souls. The anguish of separation and the ecstasy of being fully connected in love can sometimes be felt simultaneously in the churning waters of our hearts. Learn the Maha Mantra.

Episode 4: Healing the Heart
In Bhakti we experience the power of Love, we feel the extraordinary and transformative power of expressing our feelings and emotions through songs and mantras, and we are graced with the healing power of sacred sound. Mysteriously, as we chant, this sonic medicine intertwines with molecules both near and far, and purifies all that it touches. By singing in our homes, our homes became a reservoir of sacred sound and project healing energy throughout the world.

Episode 5: Resting in Grace
The practice of listening and telling stories is a big part of the path of Bhakti. Stories from all traditions can be very fun, uplifting and engaging. One might ask the question, why is storytelling so important in Bhakti? Jai explains this in a simple, yet powerful, way and talks about the lighthearted joy and deep spirituality he feels when he shares vignettes from the ancient epics. Learn Om Namah Shivaya.

Episode 6: Rippling Outward
Like a small pebble that is thrown into a lake, our songs and our kindnesses will ripple further and further outward, spreading joy and healing to the world. Learn Om Namo Narayanaya.
