Chanting. Yoga. Service.
Join us for our annual Call and Response Foundation Spring Retreat. This unique retreat will follow our Chant in Service model, combining kirtan practice with seva projects within in the local community. Located at the Sandwich Mountain Sanctuary in Thornton, NH, this will be a home-styled retreat graciously hosted by Norman and Cynthia Scrimshaw.
Mornings will include yoga offerings from Christine Mason followed by a workshop led by Adam Bauer on Bhakti Yoga and the I Ching.
Saturday afternoon will include a local service project where we will have the opportunity to take our practice “off the mat” and out into the community.
Each evening will feature kirtan led by Adam Bauer and friends!
Adam Bauer travels the globe sharing the heart-expanding beauty of group chanting in gatherings large and small. From Bhakti Fest and Wanderlust to more intimate festivals, ashrams and yoga studios, Adam enchants and inspires listeners with his deep, soulful presence wherever he goes.
Adam was blessed to spend many years playing bass in support of sacred chant pioneer Krishna Das, and later with Bhakti Yoga legend Shyamdas, both of whom nourished his love of sacred sound and the yoga of devotion. For the last several years, and especially since Shyamdas’ passing in 2013, Adam has been on the road offering his own voice, teachings, and kirtan across America, Canada and India. A lifelong student of the devotional life, Adam enjoys sharing perspectives on the path of love and devotion wherever the opportunity arises.
Through facilitating inspiring workshops, personal coaching and hands-on therapeutic sessions, Adam’s impact transcends the labels of singer or musician. As a bhakti yoga practitioner and healing artist, Adam shares his unique voice and inspiration through both ancient and contemporary spiritual practices.
