Sharanam Project

 शरणम् (Sharanam) in Sanskrit means to take complete refuge in the Lord and surrender all of life to the Creator. Our mission is to offer our practice in such a way that others can find shelter in the sacred names of the divine and be enveloped by His/Her grace. A project to bring communities together through the sacred  and ancient practices of Bhakti Yoga and living a yogic lifestyle.


Join Michael Francis & Tulsi Devi for a heart opening evening of Bhakti Yoga. The sacred practice of kirtan, repetitiously chanting the names of the divine, is a devotional practice originating in India. This is a unique opportunity to sing together in community as you’re guided on a musical meditation and yogic journey into the Self. No singing skill or experience necessary. All are welcome.
