Exploring Vāyu (movement of life force), Bhāva (emotion) and Rasa (flavor) Through Performance

November 2, 2023 - November 16, 2023

These two 1.5 hour live, online sessions (November 02 & 16, 2023) are part of Satsangam’s Vedic Threads’ ongoing membership-based course with Drs. Ramkumar & Welch. Schedule details available on your class page after registration.
In these two sessions, we are joined by Kapila Venu ji, a practitioner of Kutiyattam (“Koodiyattam”), – one of the oldest living theatre traditions in the world. She has studied multiple Indian art and dance and theater forms, including Mohiniyattam dance. Kapila ji joins us to talk about the role and connection of vāyubhāva (emotion) and rasa (flavor). In these art forms, vāyu represents the movement of the life force through the body and mind, and is a medium through which to explore emotion and demonstrate the scope of human experience. We plan to discuss the differences between and nuances of prāṇa and vāyubhāva and rasa; how traditional performance practices weave these threads together, and the role they play in mental health.
We welcome you to join us in heartfelt conversation on these themes, in our twice-monthly Vedic Threads membership-based course. For USD/month you have access to two live 1.5-hour sessions/month with Drs. Ramkumar, Welch, world-class guest instructors, dedicated participants from all over the world, and more than 40 hours of content from previous sessions.
