Celebrate Life - Celebrate Love - Kick off your New Year with a sneak peek of Bhakti before Kristin, Randall and Kenny hit the recording studio!

Bhakti Yoga is the yoga of love and devotion drawn from traditions of ancient India. Kirtan and satsang are foundational practices that embody the spirit and joy of bhakti and self-awareness.

Kirtan is a call and response chanting, singing ancient mantra in gratitude and devotion to the divine. Combined with music, this is a celebration that inspires and fills the heart with love, inspiration and beauty. Satsang is the community that gathers to celebrate and abide in the radiance of our True Nature.

Grounded in a living tradition, mantra is an ancient science that is quickly gaining acceptance for those seeking inspiring and effective self-awareness practices. Chanting mantra infuses the mind with auspicious thoughts, compassion and self-awareness. Regardless of whether or not you feel an expert in an unfamiliar language, chanting inspires confidence, joy, and exuberance. Gathering in Satsang allows us to potentize this radiance, beauty and joy, inspiring inner prosperity and rapid transformation.

Join us for opening meditation and a quick word about Bhakti, and the intention of our celentratoin - and then get down to the Bhakti House Sound, with Kenny Colter jamming along - this is not your average Sunday!!

Bhakti-Yoga is a real, genuine search after the Lord, a search beginning, continuing, and ending in love. One single moment of the madness of extreme love to God brings us eternal freedom. "Bhakti", says Nârada in his explanation of the Bhakti-aphorisms, "is intense love to God"; "When a man gets it, he loves all, hates none; he becomes satisfied for ever"; "This love cannot be reduced to any earthly benefit", because so long as worldly desires last, that kind of love does not come; "Bhakti is greater than karma, greater than Yoga, because these are intended for an object in view, while Bhakti is its own fruition, its own means and its own end." ~Swami Vivekananda

About this Presenter: 

Bhakti House Band is led by Texas mantra musicians Randall and Kristin Brooks, and give an East-meets-West fusion of percussion-driven instrumentation and rich harmonies that enlighten the soul. Combining Sanskrit mantra and kirtan with inspirational English lyrics, Bhakti House Band creates a sacred space where listeners can surrender their minds to the rhythmic groove of the heart.

For over 22 years, Randall & Kristin have shared and articulated their spiritual journey through relevant lyrics and heart-felt musical compositions. They currently travel the globe, gathering communities together to experience the healing power of music and the practice of Nada Bhakti Yoga (the yoga of sacred sound and conscious devotion). Their intention is to inspire humanity to awaken their hearts, live with purpose, and experience a higher sense of freedom and connection with all life.

Named one of Origin Magazine’s Inspiring Community Leaders in 2012 and one of its Favorite Couples Working Together to Shift the Planet in 2013, Randall and Kristin passionately believe it is every human’s responsibility to use their TAGs (talents, abilities, and gifts) to serve and uplift humanity. Their non-profit organization, Conscious Living Empowerment Foundation (CLEF) creates projects like the Peace Love OM Project, to provide opportunities for children to do just that. Also noteworthy is the captivating title track of their second album, Akasha Blue Sky. The award-winning piece is a collaboration of 18 children from various cultures and traditions singing for "Love, Peace, and Harmony". This inspiring song has quickly garnered attention from musicians, philanthropists, and peace organizations all over the world.
