Event Spotlight


Krishna and Gershone with Blue Spirit Wheel and special guest Johanna Beekman

Oregon based Kirtan artist Johanna Beekman will be joining up with Atlanta groups, Blue Spirit Wheel and Krishna & Gershone for an uplifting night of chant and conscious music at Vista Yoga in Decatur on August 20th. Johanna has recently released her new album, Heart Beats One, and has collaborated with many well known artists in the conscious music world throughout her career such as Dave Stringer, David Newman, and Girish. Local favorites and prolific Kirtan artists, Blue Spirit Wheel and Krishna & Gershone will be playing alongside Johanna at this magical event. It is certain to be a soul stirring, heart opening experience for all and the highlight of the month for the local Bhakti community. Hope to see you there.

Joey is retiring from his career as a social worker at the VA hospital at the end of August, and will be moving up to Brevard, NC, with his wife Donna.

Stan Holt, Bhajarangi, Founder of Swaha Productions is stepping back as manager to focus on new life adventures including his sacred bodywork practice at Jaguar Healing Arts. Stan has passed the torch to Mahadevi who will continue to share the love and sacred practice of Chant in our Atlanta community. But rest assured he will be around,’ a man can step away from the Kirtan, but the bhav remains in his heart’. Stan invites you to honor yourself by scheduling a healing session with him soon. Thank you Bhajarangi for this blessing you have created for us all.
