Spend a transformative week on magical Crete immersed in the healing energy of the island as you experience the vibrations of mantra yoga and the beautiful sounds of kirtan. Kirtan is a powerful practice using sound, song, and mantra chanting to connect with others, to engage in self-exploration, and to encourage conscious evolution. Experience a blend of meditation, pranayama, and yoga focused on opening the heart chakra with dancing yoga, kirtan, and mantra yoga. Each activity uses tools and mediums of sound to journey deeper into your heart and a space of silence.  Nourish your mind, body, and spirit with colorful Cretan and Ayurvedic meals, conscious movement, sound vibrations, and rejuvenating time spent among the mountains and the sea.
