Bhakti Tribe emerges in modern times to inspire devotion as an art, to enhance and accelerate creativity based on the ancient science of the harmonics of light and sound. The tribe serves as a reminder to remember our connection to self, unity, community, Creator/source/the all that is/G.O.D. (give own definition).
The Bhakti Tribe is many things and it is one thing … it is the conscious practice of focused intent upon a particular source, ideal or reflection of divine nature. Synergistically, it is the performance of such focus, through the various media of art, music, literature, theatre, story, and dance. In this way, the art of devotion … the Bhakti Tribe mission is realized.
Bhakti Tribe, like the Gypsy, traveled the ancient worlds sharing the gift of devotion in parables portrayed through art, music, poetry, theatre, dance and story. In this way, the people of the lands received the spiritual nurturing, guidance, insights and understandings to embrace and move through the challenges and opportunities of life. In gratitude for this spiritual manna (food), the people supported the needs of the tribe with gifts and offerings of land, lodging, transportation, food and clothing.
