Sign up sheet - https://docs.google.com/spreadsheets/d/1La3Xr8kfF-iez6pZ7A2e2rZ_EO_faPJo_SYNQVW_cFc/edit?usp=sharing
We will interpret sacred chants through movements in a series of weekly classes from December to mid January. The gestures/mudras are grounded in Bharata Natyam. The movements with the chants create a meditative state. Absolutely no dance experience is needed. Age is no barrier. Nor is gender, state of body or mind. Donation is yatha shakti: your comfort level. All donations will go in full for the AtiRudram event for world well being and peace conducted in the depths of Penusila Kshetra in early 2021. The Ati Rudram Maha Yajnam is a time tested ancient vedic ceremony for peace and prosperity in the universe. It brings together a global family in a shared vision of peace and well being for all.
