Bhakthi is the heart-drenched approach to spirituality in Indian philosophy. The word Bhakthi means heartfelt surrender and attachment. Bhakthi is steeped in music, dance and poetry and asks for feelingful actions that bring about harmony of all life. The Bhakthi approach in India was spearheaded by inspiring, passionate and transformative artists, singers and poets such as Mirabai, Jayadeva, Allama Prabhu and others.  

The dance contemplation classes will focus on some of the greatest archetypal deities of Bhakthi including Krishna-Arjuna from the seminal text Bhagavad Gita, Hanuman from Ramayana and Draupadi from the epic Mahabharatha. It will use powerful and moving compositions from the great Bhakthi poets and singers as inspiration for contemplative dance.

The dance contemplation classes focus on the practice (sadhana) links between dance and philosophy through the Bhakthi space. The class will include guided improvisation and reflection.
