KIRTAN – Mantra Chanting – Sound Meditation – April 2020

Sunday, 19th April | 4.00 – 5.30pm | $30 p.p.  / $50 per family

With Cara and band. Harmonium and Drums.

Kirtan is a form of call-and-response chanting in a group. A mantra is chanted back to a lead singer who accompanies him or herself with traditional instruments, like the harmonium and / or drums

Through chanting we connect effectively to our hearts. The sound, the vibrational energy and the experience of chanting allows our hearts to ease, to soften and to heal.

As Krishna Das says: ” Through chanting we offer our hearts in love to the presence of Love in this moment “. ‘

It is a beautiful form of pranayama and sound meditation. It allows us to practice mindfulness, be in the present moment, release and unblock stagnant energy, and simply chant to our heart’s desire.

We are invited to leave the worries of the mind behind, and feel and express ourselves from the heart.

It is originally from India and is practiced as a form of Bhakti yoga, the yoga of devotion, the yoga of love.

We are very lucky to be able to offer this practice in our studio. The yoga of sound has been close to my heart since childhood.

All you have to do is walk through ABOVE door, take a seat and enjoy exploring your voice. No singing, yoga or meditation experience is required.

We will chant several chants, in addition to the Gayatri Mantra, which expresses gratitude to the divine and the life-giving sun. The intention of opening ourselves up to new experiences and to connecting to our hearts is more important than the meaning of the words.

Our facilitators Cara and her partner Marcus bring us voice, harmonium, drums as well as enthusiasm and experience.
