    Integral Yoga states that the ‘I am’ we each feel inside is actually the same Universal “I AM.” It is one thing to know this intellectually and another to live it and feel it within. Even more importantly, if humanity wishes to survive, now is the time not to just talk about Integral Yoga, but to apply this evolved New Consciousness way of being in today’s maddening and confusing world. No prior study or practice is necessary.

    Anton Grosz has been a practitioner and teacher of Integral Yoga and New Consciousness for over 40 years. His focus is the experiential mode of this evolutionary way of being and the importance of its real time application for individuals, humanity, and the very future of our planet.

    Join Aks & Lakshmi in a concert of Electronic Bhakti Music that takes listeners through a full-body relaxation in savasana. Ancient Hindu hymns such as the Gayatri mantra and Hanuman Chalisa have long-lasting physical and mental benefits that are especially needed in these unprecedented times. Enjoy lively and meditative melodies with soulful singing, keyboard, and electronic instruments, as Aks & Lakshmi reinvent sacred bhajans with contemporary World music. Absorb positive and healing vibrations and rejuvenate every cell in your body.

    Aks & Lakshmi are a composer-vocalist duo who specialize in Electronic Bhakti Music. They are pioneers in blending Hindu devotional bhajans and stotras with electronic and pop genres to create powerful spiritual experiences. The husband-wife team left their corporate careers in software engineering and finance, and have been full-time devotional musicians for over 8 years. They are based in Los Angeles, CA and tour in North America and beyond. Audiences describe their music as “healing,” “meditative” and “transforming.”

    Aks is a composer, producer and vocalist who composes music for albums, film & TV, and video games. Trained by Oscar winner AR Rahman, Aks has a forte for combining multi-layered electronic orchestrations with classical Indian melodies.

    Lakshmi is a vocalist-scholar who brings singing, scholarship, and storytelling onto one platform. With an M.A. in Religious Studies from Stanford University, she performs and writes on the great bhakti poet-saints for international publications. The duo’s love for Sanskrit, Hinduism, technology and Indian cultural values inspires them every day to create this innovative path of electronic bhakti music.

    As guest artists at Princeton, Stanford, and the Parliament of World Religions, the content of their sacred music holds strong educational value. In 2013, their music and media company Eclipse Nirvana released “The Bhakti Movement” album, distributed worldwide by Sony Music.

    Mahaatma Gandhi’s great respect for the power of sung-prayers and spiritual chanting resulted in his observing daily rituals of interfaith sung-prayers, some simple enough to be sung by everyone, yet so powerful that they nourished a freedom movement of millions. These daily rituals remained a constant, touching every facet of the Mahaatma’s life, as well as the lives of those around him. The sung-prayer songs were woven from both ancient sacred texts, and from popular devotional traditions of East and West. This presentation will consider some of the sung-prayers that the Mahaatma referred to as “primary nourishment” for the Satyaagraha community.

    Rev. Dr. Cynthia Snodgrass is the founder and director of Sacred Sound Institute, an organization dedicated to increasing the awareness, understanding, and use of music and sacred sound in health-care, educational, and religious settings. Her doctoral dissertation is entitled The Sounds of Satyaagraha: Mahaatma Gandhi’s Use of Ritual and Sung-Prayers.

    Joan Allekotte is a long-time student of the late, Sri Karunamayee and Pandit Pran Nath. She is co-founder and director of Sur Laya Sangam Study Center for Indian Devotional Music, which seeks to foster cultural understanding and peace through India’s spiritual music.
