What is Kirtan?
Ever feel like you can’t shake a downer mood, or something is getting to you and you can't stop thinking about it? Is life too fast and furious to catch a calm breath and reflect? Or maybe you feel like accessing a deeper level of experience than the daily grind, exploring your untapped unique potential.
Just like there are yoga postures for the body to relax and strengthen and tone, there are mantras (special sound vibrations found in the ancient yoga texts) that act as a revitalizing tonic for the mind. Using these mantras for meditation brings the mind to rest in a space free from stress and anxiety. The word “mantra” literally means to “free the mind”.
Kirtan is a meditation in call and response style – the leader sings the mantra and the crowd responds, creating a dynamic, uplifting experience for all.
No musical experience required! You don't have to be able to sing in tune either. Just bring a desire to revitalize your mind and awaken your essential self.
