Wise Heart Community

Chants, Kirtans, and Orders of Service

32

The Wise Heart Community for Devotional Practice and Study is an interfaith group of seekers, striving through devotion, shared community, and selfless service to live life to good purpose and in the light of our true nature. We are rooted in the tradition of Satyananda Yoga. We bring our own spiritual traditions together with our yogic practices to create a rich mix of perspectives from which to examine our relationship with the Divine and with all of creation.

Who is the remover of all Sin and Ignorance;

May the Creator enlighten our Intellect.
