DOES IT MATTER
WHAT I DO?

-Making KARMA Work for You-

with Venerables Tarpa and Venerable Chonyi from Sravasti Abbey
Friday, October 14, 2016
6 pm to 7:30 pm


Today the media, finance, and government often leave the impression that lying, cheating, greed, and meanness are the new normal.  How much does it matter how we treat one another?  What's the benefit for me in caring for others?

Join us for an evening of exploring the effects of our thoughts and actions, and the power they hold over our pain and happiness.

This event is free, offerings to the Abbey are appreciated.

Yoga Nidra means yogic sleep- a state of conscious deep sleep for extreme relaxation and subtler spiritual exploration.  It is a unique marriage of science and spirit, taking your brain to the alpha state and eventually the even deeper theta wave state.

Experience the power of Sound-  sound healing techniques activate each chakra, massages the subtle bodies, and are designed to resonate with the higher frequencies of consciousness as you are guided to an inner journey to amplify the vision of life in  a wider landscape.
 


This has been a well-attended event so please arrive early to reserve your spot.  Please, no late arrivals. Door will be locked once the meditation begins in respect to students who have settled in.  Unfortunately we cannot allow children to attend this meditation event.






Husband and wife, Rob and Melissa, are kirtan artists, yoga teachers and storytellers. Melissa’s angelic voice is the perfect compliment to Rob’s more earthy, singer-songwriter vocals, and together they create an accessible environment that invites both the uninitiated and the more experienced kirtan participants to feel welcome.

Here's what studio owners and yoga teachers are saying about Rob and Melissa:

"Rob and Melissa bring the beauty and the bhav."

-Daniel Stewart, kirtan artist/co-owner Rising Lotus Yoga

"Rob and Melissa light up the room with their soulful voices and their passion for Sanskrit chants and inspirational lyrics. Together they capture the audience with their joy-filled performances and their sweet glances at each other. If kirtan is indeed a path to the Divine, then Rob & Melissa will
pave the way." 
 

-Jeni Martinez, Owner/Three Trees Yoga

"I love me some Rob and Melissa kirtan! They create an incredibly warm and inviting atmosphere where people can let their voices shine. Their harmonies together along with Rob's amazing guitar playing soothe the soul and bring much joy."

-MJ Daniels, Teacher/8 Limbs Yoga

"Whenever I think of working with Rob and Melissa, I smile. They are truly Bhakti Yogis leading with heart and soul. Their gift of kirtan will change you. You will smile more too."

-Jenniferlyn (JL) Chiemingo, Dir. of Yoga/hauteyoga Queen Anne

"Rob and Melissa...bitchin' kirtan!"

-Amber Tande, Owner/Sutra Yoga

Rob is a singer/songwriter with a message of joy and celebration who began sharing his music with the yoga community after a teacher heard one of his songs, "Breathe", bought a CD and began playing it in her yoga classes.  Then the same teacher asked him to lead a kirtan at her studio, and he and Melissa have been chanting ever since. Besides singing kirtan with Melissa, Rob continues to write, record and perform as a solo artist.  Learn more 

Although Melissa has been singing her entire life, it was through Rob's encouragement that she began sharing her sweet, lyrical voice with others. Through the discovery of kirtan and bhakti yoga she found deeper access to her authentic voice. Melissa began her practice of yoga over 15 years ago, and has been teaching since 2012. Whether leading kirtan or a yoga practice, Melissa provides a safe space to honor the humility of curiosity and welcomes the thrill of discovery in the potential of each individual's expression. 

In addition to leading kirtans, Rob and Melissa also teach workshops and live music yoga classes.
