ABOUT KIRTAN

Kirtan is a simple yet powerful practice that opens the heart & frees the mind through simple, call & response, chanting of sacred mantras. It's power is beyond words. During the evening I will lead you through a collection of simple chants & spiritual songs, drawn mainly from the Yogic & Buddhist traditions, with other favourites and maybe a few of my own songs thrown in...

You are invited to join in the chant or to rest in the group vibration, to whatever degree you feel comfortable. No experience is necessary and you don’t need to be a good ‘singer’ - kirtan is about expressing your heart through your voice, within a non-judgemental sacred sound space. You may find it uplifting, calming, quieting, energising.....all of these things and many more... but most of all Kirtan, as a form of Bhakti Yoga (the Yoga of Devotion), speaks to the heart, & brings you back into it; back home.

First timers need not worry - I hold a space for a simple, friendly gathering. You are welcome to come & sing, to dance, to make some noise....or to just come, listen, be.... No experience necessary, your presence is all that is required :) Come and experience the love that you are, through the power of your own sound. Free from expectation, free from judgement, I invite you to sing out & shine.
