Benefit Kirtan & Life Celebration for Matura Seva

Sunday December 9th, 2018  - 7-9 pm
@Whirled Pies 
199 W 8th Ave, Eugene, OR 

In October the Bhakti community suffered the loss of a beautiful soul.  Bhakti musician, spiritual teacher, author, friend & mentor  ~ Matura Seva.  

Matura spent his life spreading the message of Bhakti yoga.   He lived for a time as a prominent member of an ashram where he taught and held space for spiritual practice.  As a family man he raised 2 children with his wife Krishnangini, ran a business, wrote books about spiritual life, was an Ayurvedic consultant and performed and shared as a life-long musician.  The last few years of his life he could be found offering kirtan with his band Bhakti Shakti and hosting a local radio show devoted to the yoga & Bhakti music community.  Check out Matura's music & offerings here.

On December 8th there will be a Celebration of Life service for Matura to take place at Unity of the Valley in South Eugene, on Saturday December 8th beginning at 11.00 a.m 

On December 9th there will be a musical celebration and silent auction with many of the musicians and friends who played with Matura sharing his music and their own offerings in his honor including: Shanti Shivani, Glenn Falkenburg, Jesse Whitworth, Jaya Lakshmi & Ananda, and others.  I am super honored to be leading some of Matura's chants this evening.  

The silent auction is an opportunity to support Matura's family in this time of transition & healing.  Friends also can give at a go-fund-me-page here.

We all miss Matura and feel him shining brightly as he journeys onward.
