Rupa – Form of Love – draws upon soulful
songs honoring the Divine Presence from the traditions of Hindi
kirtan, Sanskrit and Buddhist chanting, and Sufi qawwali.
Prema Rupa does not perform, but rather facilitates the kirtan
chanting experience for yoga practitioners, devotees of the Divine,
and those who may want to learn chanting as sadhana - daily devotional
practice. The chant leaders render simple phrases, usually in
Sanskrit or Hindi, allowing equal measure for the "mirror
response" of the participants in the session. The purpose
of the kirtan is a shared experience of concentration in the joy
of sacred music.
Adam Burke, Forrest Redford Burke, Greg Davis, Debbie
Elman, John Hinton, and Debra Podjed are Prema Rupa.
Spanning three decades, they have among them the collective experience
of living, working, and praying in India; a proficiency in Hindi
and Sanskrit; chant leaders and musicians for Paramahansa Yogananda’s
Self-Realization Fellowship; practitioners of Sacred Circle Dancing,
Sufi Dances of Universal Peace, and Sacred Tibetan Buddhist Dances;
students of sitar, vocal and tabla from the Ali Akbar College
of Music and other Indian masters. The instruments that accompany
the Prema Rupa musicians include harmonium, sitar, tamboura, guitar,
tabla, cymbals and bells, frame drum, and Tibetan bowls.
Experience devotional chanting from many spiritual traditions.
Sacred Dance is a compilation of music and steps from a rich tradition
of cultures from around the world. Helping us to connect with
our ancient roots and experience a greater sense of community,
these dances invoke a joyful and meditative spirit of unity and
healing. Debbie Elman has been sharing these dances in many circles
of celebration since 1989, dancing at weddings, conferences, peace
gatherings, holiday festivities and private parties. These dances
are fun and easy to learn. They are full of the grace, beauty
and celebration of the human spirit.

ways in which his students can see how a connection to God, the
Divine and the Tao can occur in the most simple of ways or the most

Kundalini yoga in the 80s and has experienced yoga for over 20 years.
