Monthly Kirtan Workshop

Description:

Join Francesca as we chant and sing mantras together! No experience necessary! Singing is inherent within everyone who has the ability to make sound, and you don’t need to be a trained singer to give your full devotion! 

Kirtan is a call and response chanting practice born and raised by India’s bhakti traditions, with Bhakti referring to devotion and love, and many of the chants focused upon the devotion and love towards a deity or the divine. 

What is included?

Kirtan is a meditational and devotional chanting experience usually set to music. Traditionally, a Kirtan leader will sing through the chant, or a line in the chant, and then the participants/audience will sing the chant back to the leader. Chanting can help to express our devotion to something higher than ourselves to help open our heart. When we choose to open up our heart, we can live in peace and compassion with all. Kirtans are very old chants composed of mantras. So bring your voice, instruments and friends and lets chant together. 

Benefits:

  • Relieve stress and anxiety
  • A tangible feeling of connection and community.
  • Quieten a busy mind.
