The Weekend Retreat

This weekend immersion will focus on the yoga of song in the Baul tradition. We will chant, sing, dance and play music with simple instruments. Parvathy will share the history and practices of the Bauls, tell us their stories and discuss the deeper spiritual and philosophical lessons embedded in the songs we learn.

No previous experience or knowledge of Baul is required. Prepare to sing, move, laugh and sweat! Please join us!

Supporting the Center in Bengal

Parvathy is in the process of establishing a Baul educational and cultural center in Shantiniketan ( This center will preserve and transmit the artistic and spiritual traditions of the Bauls and reach out to children and women from neighboring villages, offering instruction in music, song, and yoga.

The $200 fee for this 8-hour retreat (and any additional donation you make) will go towards supporting Parvathy’s vision for this center and will be fully tax-deductible through SACSA (Society for Arts and Culture of South Asia), a registered 501c3 non-profit organization that has been actively working with Parvathy and her educational center since April 2017.

Please do not hesitate to contact us if you have any questions. We hope to see you on this special weekend!
