$20 in ADV., $25 at the door

Soul-stirring dance electronica grooves meet India’s ecstatic chant tradition resulting in spiritually charged music fusion that is…….. KIRTRONICA!!!!
Get ready for an ecstatic evening of dancing and chanting with Jaya Lakshmi and Ananda as they lead you on the journey known as ‘Kirtronica’. Imagine a beautiful altar, dazzling laser lights and insatiably danceable music infused with devotion and you’ve got it. The heavenly voices of Jaya Lakshmi and Ananda swirl you on a mystical journey of the spirit and Ananda’s bansuri flute playing transcending you into the ethers. Will you be there?
‘Kirtronica’ is a term for a new genre of music that is currently being established in the yoga world which is electronic dance music combined with live Sanskrit/Indian chanting and singing over it. Jaya Lakshmi was one of the pioneers of ‘Kirtronica’ with her previous band “Lost at Last”, founded in Maui, Hawaii in 1997. Over the last few years Jaya Lakshmi has composed original electronic music using Ableton Live. Similar to the the Lost at Last sound, her new music is a mixture of house and tribal trance beats, with (recordings of) acoustic instruments like tabla, guitar, flute, and sarod. In the current duo format, Jaya Lakshmi sings live while Ananda runs Ableton Live. They lead the audience through an ecstatic dance journey that awakens their shakti, inspiring devotional trance states and deepening their connection with the divine.

“From the heart-opening strains of their sumptuous traditional kirtan to the wild blend of contemporary rhythms and sounds they call Kirtronica, Jaya Lakshmi and Ananda’s divine harmonies will keep you riding waves of devotion from the meditation hall to the dance floor, and most everyplace in between. ” ~ Janet Stone

Have you have ever wondered… is there re-incarnation, does the soul live on after death, is there a purpose to our lives beyond the day to day existence? What you decide on these questions will affect how you live your daily life.

“Destiny is the cards you were dealt, Free -Will is how you play them, Karma is the outcome” ~ J. Armstrong

These are a few of the topics for the evenings lecture and Q&A
What is karma? Did you know there were four kinds of karma?
What is the Law of Causality, how is karma created and can you change your karma?
Why do bad things happen to good people? What about death & dying?
When we use free-will to create an outcome when can we expect the results?
Do families, societies, countries share a karma?

We invite you to learn the 4 Kinds of Karma and the 3 stages of its unfolding and how to use your conscious free will to over come any negative residues of improper action or association. This yogic “depth psychology” empowers you to liberation and your true potential. Jeffrey’s clear-eye perspective of the issues facing the world paired with his humor and humanity take audiences on an incredible jouney. He will challenge your mind and open your heart and show you a vision of“karma”that blends modern science with timeless wisdom.

Masterfully taught by one of the most loved and respected teachers of Yoga philosophy. Featured in the CBC documentary “Planet Yoga”, best -selling author of “Spiritual Teaching of the Avatar, Ancient Wisdom for a NewWorld” Jeffrey Armstong teaches with humor and deep insight into our human and divine nature.


Jeffrey is an expert on the subject of karma. He’s watched it unfold for thousands of clients. Challenged by the skeptic Michael Shermer on his own show “Exploring the Unknown” Fox TV, Jeffrey proved his incredible accuracy. Jeffrey has over 40 years’ experience as an AyurVedic Astrologer and teacher of Eastern wisdom and he is known for his wise counsel and spiritual insights. He says: “Astrology indicates free will, and unveils hidden karmas. Astrology is not just knowing about life, it’s about planning your life, taking advantage of opportunity, and overcoming challenges.”
