Bhaj is a search for belonging. Departing from personal stories that become universal. It’s about dealing with our attachment to the flesh, to the space, to ideas, to other people, to a country, to a family.
A journey of transformation. Connecting with the power of ritualistic movement to ascend into a trance. Moving and reaching out allowing us to examine our own lives and the way we live.
The Sanskrit word bhakti is derived from the root bhaj, which means "divide, share, partake, participate, to belong to". The word also means "attachment, devotion to, fondness for, homage, faith or love, worship, piety to something as a spiritual, religious principle or means of salvation".
The Sanskrit noun bhakti is derived from the verb bhaj, meaning broadly “to share, to possess,” and occupies a semantic field that embraces the notions of “belonging,”
