We will start the evening with a short meditation allowing the group to settle and connect to a nice silence. After the meditation Josh will give a short explanation on what Kirtan is and how to perform a traditional kirtan and mantra meditation. We will chant for around 30 minutes and then end with readings and discussion from the yoga scriptures. In yoga these sessions are typically known as - Satsang
A little more about Kirtan…
Kirtan is an ancient practice of yoga performed to open the heart and devote your thoughts towards the divine or supreme consciousness, typically chanted in the ancient language - Sanskrit. It is a practice that brings great joy and elevates the mood quickly. It’s important to know kirtan doesn’t have to be religious, you can relate to the practice in your own way, maybe thinking of it as a sing along or hymn.
The singing or chanting of Kirtan is not about how the voice sounds but more importantly it's about the merging of voices as one, gently bringing a state of meditation.
This is a practice for everyone whether you practice asana (yoga postures) or not. Come to express yourself through kirtan or simply enjoy the vibrations and sounds of the ancient chants.
