  • Saraswati with Swami Satyananda and Friends

    Swami Satyananda reveals the language of the heart as she discusses the power of Saraswati: the goddess of wisdom, speech, learning, the arts – the focus of our teachings here at the Ashram. She relates how she moved into her heart through dance and understands the delicate dance between logic and intuition which guides any creative process. She is joined by returning teachers, Francesca Cogorno and Ashley Laframboise, who speak to their experience of Saraswati through mantra, dance and poetry. The expanded Elastic Band plays again the wonderful songs of Saraswati and more. Find the words in the Temple Songbook so you can sing along with everyone in the Temple of Light.
