Community Kirtan

with Radha & Benjamin

Saturday April 21st

Join us for another beautiful evening focus on singing from the heart, to nourish our community with love, peace & harmony! You’ll hear a blend of Western harmonies and East Indian traditions, as we’re led through blessed mantras. Together, beginners and experts synchronize breath and voice in an ancient practice that is both energizing and deeply relaxing. As in meditation, kirtan offers a state of relaxed alertness, as continuous chanting silences mental dialogue, and a profound sense of stillness and bliss is shared by all. The harmony and renewal generated in kirtan flows through us for days, inspiring our lives and everyone around us.
