Dear friends, time to say good bye to darkness, and wake up to enlightenment. Its time for a new cycle of birth and celebration, expanding, bursting, rising, thriving! Yes, it is the time for spring cleaning and removing all the cobwebs. Let's clean our mind, body and soul with the sacred sound vibrations of the mantras. Let's cleanse our hearts from lethargy, stress, anger, sleep, depression, inertia and fill them with enlightenment, joy, enthusiasm and love. Celebrate spring’s potency on all levels: physical, mental, emotional & spiritual.
Kirtan is a call-and-response practice of chanting from the heart, sung with wonderful melodies ranging from meditative to ecstatic. It requires no background or training, and is easily learned. Dropping down out of our busy minds, we settle our focus in the heart centre, where, in all of us there is love, compassion and beauty; and we use our voices to express that love.
To the accompaniment of instruments we will sing simple Sanskrit Mantras (chants in a powerful ancient language) that have a profoundly healing effect on our subconscious and our energetic system. You can join in singing, dancing, clapping or simply basking in the sound. Kirtan is fun, it feels good, and brings one into a place of peace, well-being and blissful joy.
Even if you don't want to sing just being in the room and listening to the sounds will help to take you to a meditative zone. The effects of Kirtan are felt on the more subtle levels of consciousness as the atmosphere and vibrations in the room and surroundings are heightened.
No yoga or singing experience necessary. Everyone Welcome.
