Community Kirtan & Bhakti Yoga

KIRTAN (from the Sanskrit word “to praise/ to glorify”) is an ancient practice of mantra chanting in a call and response format. The leader sings out a line, and the audience sings it back, building and blending until there is no longer any distinction between the chant and the chanter.

Join Jennifer O’Toole as she leads us in this exciting call and response format singing event Friday, January 10th from 6:30pm -8:30pm

The purpose of kirtan is to create a peaceful, meditative state, as the repeated chants give the thinking mind a chance to become quiet. For many people, kirtan is also a way of connecting with a deeper spiritual experience, but kirtan can also be enjoyed purely for the joy of the music and the feeling of community that it creates. While the chants used in Kirtan have a rich spiritual history, kirtan is non-denominational and can be a meaningful experience for anyone of any spiritual background. 

Kirtan is more about the collective energy created by the music, rather than about people’s individual voices, so you don’t have to be a good singer in order to participate. And if you don’t feel comfortable singing, you don’t have to—you can sit quietly as the music flows around you. You don’t have to know any Sanskrit, either. The experience is rooted in the vibrations, melody, and rhythm of the music rather than on the words. Kirtan music facilitates a meditative, peaceful state that stays with you even after you leave.

This is a donation based community class.  Everyone is welcome!
