New Year’s Retreat with Shantala

I’m deeply honored to participate in a New Year’s Eve kirtan and New Year’s Day retreat with Shantala, who bring their deeply inspiring and devotional music to Ananda Center at Laurelwood.
Come relax, renew and re-open your heart to begin the New Year at the beautiful Ananda Center Laurelwood in Gaston, Oregon – with Benjy & Heather Wertheimer, Sean Frenette and Kate Busby.
