The Land of Action
There is something undeniably sacred about the journey to India, the land where the teachings of yoga were first heard them as cosmic music by saints and sages, where people have been practicing those teachings for thousands of years without ceasing. Let yourself be inspired and activated by the special magic of this journey, whether it be your first or you’ve been there many times before.

About Bhakti, Radhanath Swami, and The Journey Home
Bhakti is the yoga of devotion, which takes the energetic science of yoga from practice into an experience of transcendental joy. It is perhaps one of the most magical aspects of Jivamukti Yoga, expressed through chanting and spiritual storytelling.
The Jivamukti Method’s sincere connection to traditional lineages and spiritual communities in India includes our association with Govardhan Ecovillage, the ashram home of Radhanath Swami.
The Journey Home is Radhanath Swami’s inspiring story in which a search for God and Guru led the young American teen from Europe to India on foot, where he faced challenges, met treasured friends, and ultimately created the very place where you will travel for your own profound transformation.
