Background: Why Bauls sing and dance



Baul is about using the medium of art to experience inner transformation.


Basically, we are working with the body and voice, and how that can connect you to your soul, how it can become a prayer. Baul is not to become a singer: in Baul, singing is a tool for spiritual realisation. Baul gaan (songs) are synonymous with gyan (wisdom). They are wisdom wrapped in melody.


When a Baul is singing or dancing, more than a performance, it is generating energy. The more you sing and dance, the more energy comes inside. So it's a complete flow of shakti (energy) in the body. 


Through our music we try to touch that state where there is no effort required (sahaj). It looks like a lot of effort, a lot of movement, a lot of music, the voice going high and going down. But the inside is very still, there is no movement.


Through music, we are actually in a meditation. Call it a dynamic meditation. Or you can say meditation in motion.


Baul is about going beyond music, dance and poetry, through all movement to achieve an inner stillness.


And singing a Baul song is like lighting a fire. On a cold night, we sit around it and receive its warmth and light; we receive the wisdom of the Baul song.


If we understand the language, we can immerse with the language, with the mind. But if we don’t, then we immerse with our soul, with our body, to the sound.”

(Parvathy Baul)




What happens in the retreat?


 

In the retreat, Parvathy Maa will teach a Baul song and speak about its deeper yogic meaning.


With Parvathy Maa’s guidance, you will practise body movements that correlate with the song, so that you get a first-hand experience of Baul in and through your own body.


There will also be space for Parvathy Maa to answer questions.

The nearness (sannidhyam) to sincere spiritual practitioners enriches us with purification of heart, attraction to the divine, enthusiasm, joy and courage to approach life’s challenges.


As the retreat is an intimate gathering with only few participants, it is a rare opportunity for those who desire more immersion into experiencing the Baul tradition, teachings, and association with Parvathy Baul in an approachable or more so - sweet and loving relationship. 


As the retreat time allows some flexibilty of schedule, it may be improvised by Parvathy Maa according to her intuition of the needs of the group. A surprise elements may appear. It can be a hatha yoga session or another practise as felt by the Master herself.
