Shaktifest is a music festival dedicated to experiencing the Divine Feminine through yoga, kirtan and expanded consciousness is held each spring in the desert of Joshua Tree California. It is a sister festival to Bhaktifest dedicated to experiencing divine love and devotion as expressed through Yoga. I had the good fortune to be asked to film it through my friendship with the festival’s founder. This video of renowned kirtan performer Donna De Lory performing a more rock-n-roll version of Lokah Samastah Sukhino Bhavantu drew rave response from the crowd.

Presented at the First Annual Rishikesh Art & Film Festival in Rishikesh, India, March 2017.
