What is Kirtan?
Kirtan generates happiness. Kirtan quickly calms your mind, opens your heart, drops you into your body and illuminates a profound connection to yourself, others and the Divine. A fun and accessible social practice, Kirtan is sacred call and response chanting from the yoga tradition that requires no prior experience.The leader chants (calls) and the audience responds (response).
Eastern spirituality is represented by Sanskrit mantras that dutifully and reliably connect with you Divine energy. The music which carries these mantras (ancient words that carry an energetic force) is frequently familiar to Western ears, with influences from jazz, funk, soul, rhythm and blues, and rock music.At its highest, Kirtan becomes a form of collective spirituality where each participant serves the group, bringing Love, Freedom and Healing into each person’s life.
