Dharma Talk & Kirtan

with Shantala

Benjy and Heather Wertheimer have been leading Kirtan (sacred chanting) world wide since 2001 as the duo Shantala. Their extraordinary and unique musical gifts bring the listener into the heart of devotional Bahkti Traditions. Jo and Stu initially met Benjy and Heather while on retreat with Ram Dass and their friendship and collaboration has blossomed ever since. Shantala has performed and recorded internationally with such sacred music luminaries as Krishna Das, Deva Premal & Miten, and Jai Uttal. Heather and Benjy have released six beautiful and well-loved albums of sacred chant music since 2003, including LIVE2love, Living Waters, Jaya, LIVE in love, Sri, and The Love Window. They're both master musicians, kirtan facilitators and true Yogi's, and it's an honor to have Benjy and Heather in this retreat lineup.
