The Center for Spiritual Studies (CSS) announces Bhakti Fest, a festival that blends devotional chanting (kirtan), yoga and conscious living. The three-day festival will begin at 9 a.m., June 29, and run through 11 p.m., July 1, in Madison.

Bhakti Fest offers music, 12 hours of devotional chanting per day, 36 yoga classes with world-renowned instructors and workshops with some of the most powerful guides of our time, such as Krishna Das, Sara Ivanhoe, Darlene Vander Hoop, Dearbhla Kelly, Shymadas and Girish.

It remains dedicated to raising consciousness, bringing about spiritual awareness and creating fellowship through its events and practices.
