Kundalini Sadhana with Swami Khecaranatha @ Rudramandir
Aug 21 @ 7:00 pm – 7:00 pm

Kundalini Meditation & Shakti Transmission Classes are held most Tu/Th nights at 7 pm in Berkeley. Class includes the transmission of energy to awaken kundalini (the vital force within us), and a Q&A session. Classes in Berkeley are free of charge.  First time attendees – call 510-529-4173 to make an appointment for the required Introductory Presentation offered at 6:00 pm before your first class.  Getting an Eventbrite ticket does NOT mean you are registered for an Intro. Kundalini Meditation is an ancient spiritual practice that allows us to experience our direct connection with the Divine and integrate that awareness into daily life. Shakti Transmission is a liberating force that is vital to the awakening of the transformative current of kundalini. A teacher in a shakti transmission lineage conveys an unbroken, living spiritual energy. With a mastery etched from over 47 years of disciplined inner practice and selfless service, Swami Khecaranatha is an authentic adept in the Shakti Transmission Lineage of Bhagavan Nityananda and Swami Rudrananda. For more information, visit heartofc.org Note that classes in this practice are offered in other cities in the Bay Area. See the Programs & Centers/ Satellite Center pages on the website for class times and locations.

Jason Isbell and the 400 Unit: With guest: Aimee Mann @ University of California, Berkeley
Aug 30 @ 7:00 pm – 7:00 pm

Performing Arts – Music | August 30 | 7 p.m. |  Hearst Greek TheatreSponsor:  Another Planet EntertainmentJason Isbell and the 400 Unit’s new album, The Nashville Sound, is a beautiful piece of American musicmaking, but watch yourself: it will light a fire under your ass. “You’re still breathing, it’s not too late,” Jason sings. This album is a call, and the songs on it send sparks flying into a culture that’s already running so hot the needle on the temperature gauge is bouncing erratically in the red. And while it’s understandable that, in this moment, some people want their radio to help them drift away, this finely calibrated set of ten songs is aimed right between the clear eyes of people who prefer to stay present and awake. It’s a call to those who won’t cower no matter how erratically the world turns, and who aren’t afraid of what looks back when they look in the mirror. Bruce Springsteen did that. Neil Young did that. Jason Isbell does that. As with Isbell’s 2013 breakthrough, Southeastern, and his double-Grammy-winning follow up, 2015’s Something More Than Free, The Nashville Sound was produced by Dave Cobb. Isbell says that he and Cobb created a simple litmus test for the decisions they made in the two weeks they spent at RCA Studios (which was known as “The home of the Nashville Sound” back in the ’60’s and ’70s): they only made sonic moves that their heroes from back in the day could’ve made, but simply never did. It’s a shrewd approach—an honest way to keep the wiz-bang of modern recording technology at arms length, while also leaving the old bag of retro rock ’n’ roll tricks un-rummaged. Lyrically, The Nashville Sound is timely. Musically, it is timeless.Tickets required Ticket info:   Buy tickets onlineEvent contact:  [email protected]
