An Evening of Kirtan
Sat Jun 8
If you've sung "Om" with your fellow class members in yoga classes, you have experienced kirtan in its simplest form. Kirtan is the rhythmic repetition of mantraswords or phrasesusually in Sanskrit or Hindi. It's a musical meditation, helping us to release our thinking and analyzing mind and move into experiencing our body, feelings, sounds, and connection with others. This evening of kirtan will incorporate some chants and spiritual songs from other traditions, but the focus will be on meditative and reflective music and mantras. Some songs will support meditative bliss, while others may have you up and dancing! No previous experience with kirtan is necessary. Please register in advance to reserve your space. All are welcomekids too! Registration fees are on a sliding scale, so pay what you can.
