Kirtan

Screen Shot 2017-04-14 at 17.52.07Kirtan is the most powerful and enjoyable form of meditation. Fortunately it is also the easiest way to meditate.

Kirtan is the call-and-response singing of ancient Vedic mantras and is practised in a group of 2 or more people. Rather than being a type of performance, kirtan is a journey of self discovery, a form of bhakti yoga – the yoga of devotion.

This ancient yogic practice was traditionally accompanied with Indian instruments. In the hands of contemporary practitioners, Kirtan has been transported beautifully to all cultural and musical styles without losing its genuine spiritual authenticity.

Weaving together melody, music and mantra with people responding to the words of the singer, clapping, swaying and sometimes dancing, Kirtan is simultaneously a meditative, exhilarating and fun activity.

Sacred Yoga Sounds

The eternal wisdom contained in the yoga texts explain that these mantras are transcendental sounds endowed with unlimited spiritual potency. They purify one’s consciousness and bring deep spiritual insight and inner happiness.  By meditating on these sacred sounds we reach a state far beyond the stress and worries of life.

Spiritual Love

Everyone is looking for something real, lasting and fully satisfying in their life. That “something” is reconnecting to our spiritual source, to experience spiritual love. Kirtan nourishes the soul’s deepest needs by reawakening this spiritual love within our hearts. From this place of peace, joy and harmony, let the rest of your life unfold.
