SHANTI FEST

Friends of Leraine, 

We just spoke with Leraine. She is having a rough day and is unable to leave home. She is disappointed not to be with you this evening. Our hearts and prayers go to her.

Our evening has shifted a little. We have incredible musicians and fans of Leraine here. We are going to rock out yoga style with Tony Khalife, Hannah Webster and Friends….and send Leraine our love.

May she feel the high vibrations from us that she is always putting out into the world with her music and her whole being. Proceeds will still be donated for her healing journey and to support her music. Thank you for your understanding. Come rock.

Manoj Chalam

Manoj uses an entertaining story telling style using Hindu/Buddhist deities in his workshops to illuminate deep Vedanta philosophy and help people in their hero’s journey. An Indian-born scientist with a PhD in Chemical engineering from Cornell University, Manoj helps individuals find their archetypes in Hindu Yogic deities and teaches the 5 practices to work with their archetype as a Vedantic practice. He has also compiled a book on the symbolisms of Hindu and Buddhist deity archetypes.

Manoj was interviewed recently by the Ram Dass foundation for their podcast on “The Deities”.  Manoj, Jyothi and Kurt have created an “online ashram” under Patreon. Manoj’s workshops are usually 70% lecture, 15% archetypical deity yoga meditations, 10% Mantra chantings and 5% light spiritual stretches.

Tony Khalife

Tony’s mission is to raise the world’s vibration through music…..…to be the rose growing among the ruins, the smile through the tears, and the melody of peace overpowering the guns of war.

He is transcendence through music.

Blending a lifelong search for musical truth into all forms of world music, Tony weaves a seamless vibrational flow in which the drone and ragas of Indian music and the resonance of devotional Sufi dances  meet Western harmonies to flow into the different pulses, melodies and expressions of all forms of music Tony has mastered.

With his newest release “The Farther Shore Of Light – Sanskrit Songs Of Devotion”, Khalife highlights his mastery as a devotional artist and multi-instrumentalist in a soul-stirring recording of ancient Vedic Mantras and Hymns.

Hannah Webster

Hannah was introduced to Yoga from the time she was in high school. She loved going to hot yoga classes and very quickly got addicted to the feeling of clarity and peace from each class. As a dancer growing up, she thought yoga felt like home to her body as well. So when she moved to California from Indiana, she decided to join the Yoga Teacher Training with Leeza Villagomez in 2017. Being immersed in the yoga world introduced to her so much more than the Asanas. Doing cleanses, workshops, kirtan and working with a Shaman has filled her heart with so much gratitude, reflection and happiness. She loves to spread positivity and self love through her classes and share her love of kirtan with her students by singing with her guitar. Hoping to raise the vibrations on this beautiful earth! Jai Ma!
