Kirtan, Yoga Celebrated at 700 Voices Camp Out
Mar 15, 2011 03:49PM
When a major Kirtan concert is produced by a leading yoga teacher, you can expect both chanting and yoga to be celebrated in a big way. After fourteen years of teaching Kundalini Yoga, Bret DuBack has produced several concerts over the past few years, featuring some of the brightest names in the increasingly popular kirtan world. The success of Bret’s 700 Voices in 2008 at the University of Connecticut’s Charles Ives Center in Danbury inspired him to bring this year’s concert to a global open-air arena: the World Peace Sanctuary in Wassaic, New York, where participants will camp out during the weekend of July 10 to 13, honoring both kirtan and yoga as the natural allies they are. “The theme for 2009 is peace through yoga’s many different styles,” says Bret. “This weekend is designed to allow beginners and advanced students to obtain the peace within that will allow world peace. We are offering four major styles this weekend. I have assembled five of the most talented musical artists in our country to offer both mantra and meditation, and most of them have been doing yoga for over 30 years. This joyful weekend is also geared to answer some of the questions about yoga I’ve been asked in my fourteen years of teaching.”
Musical Artists featured are Wah!, Guru Ganesha Singh & Narinjin, Durga Das & Mira, Sat Kartar, and Shantala.
700 Voices 2009 will be held during the weekend of July 10 to 13, Friday to Monday. Gates open at 3 p.m. on July 10 at the World Peace Sanctuary, 26 Benton Road in Wassaic, New York (near Kent, CT). For information call 860.482.9076 . Visit www.700voices.com or www.bretduback.com.
