About the event
Traditionally, Kirtan is a call-and-response style song or chant aimed to praise different forms of the divine. Bhajan refers to the singing of devotional songs.
Our event will consist of collectively singing mantras (sanskrit affirmations) and simple uplifting songs- often called 'medicine songs.' We will also be opening discussion of spiritual ideas, Hindu mythology, & inviting guided meditations in-between songs. You will each have song sheets to refer to as well.
Kirtan and Bhajan are forms of Bhakti Yoga - the yoga of devotion - which welcomes loving devotion to the apparent divinity of our individual experiences.
This is a great event for anyone looking to explore a lesser known yet essential path of the yogic journey.
The kirtan guides will be facilitating the music through live instrumentation and vocals. We will also distribute song-sheets and demonstrate the lyrics of each song with fluid repetition. Participants will sing along as they feel into the melody and words with deeper clarity and intensity. It is usually after a couple minutes that the songs come to full collective fruition and begin to charge the individual and the environment with positive transformative energy!
This event is FREE! However, we do accept and appreciate donations via cash or venmo: marlenekamo
