We are delighted to invite you to a Kirtan unplugged evening with traditional instruments such as harmonium and karatals. It is very cold outside, however as long as our hearts are warm we don't have to be affected. Kirtan, congregational chanting with others, provides us with a blissful way to take time-out from our busy minds and connect more on a heart level. We invite you to the evening with heart warming chants.
The Kirtan will be followed by delicious Vegan meal! :)
Kirtan is a call-and-response yogic practice of chanting from the heart, sung with wonderful melodies ranging from meditative to ecstatic. It requires no background or training, and is easily learnt. 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 in 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.
