Shakti Fest returns for its fifth year May 15 – 17 at the Joshua Tree Retreat Center, in Joshua Tree, CA. Organized by Bhakti Fest who lead the way in conscious festival events, Shakti Fest is unique as a springtime celebration of the divine feminine spirit, described in Hindu philosophy as the ‘dynamic force which moves the universe’.
The festival features world famous yoga teachers, kirtan music stars, wisdom workshops, and a healing sanctuary.
“When we started Shakti Fest as our season kick off five years ago, we had no idea it would become such a beloved event,” noted Sridhar Silberfein, founder of Bhakti Fest. “It’s wonderful that we are able to honor the spirit of the universal mother right around Mother’s Day.”
The Shakti Fest 2015 music lineup includes inspiring kirtan (a.k.a. chanting) artists Jai Uttal, Donna De Lory, Masood Ali Khan, Saul David Raye, Govind Das & Radha, DJ Drez & Marti Nikko, Karnmarita, Prema Hara, Larisa Stow, Jaya Lakshmi & Ananda and Natesh.
The centuries-old practice of devotional chanting is considered to connect humans with themselves, the universe, and spirit. The performance schedule is at https://shaktifest.bhaktifest.com/kirtan/.
World-class yoga teachers are the heart of Shakti Fest, with Shiva Rea, Mark Whitwell, Yogi Cameron, Kia Miller, Sara Ivanhoe, Kristin Olson, Nandhi, Himalaya Behl, Bhava Ram & Laura Plum and others leading shakti-energy invoking sessions in a variety of yoga styles.
