Krishna Das said that “chanting breaks down the difference between the inside and the outside. It’s about having a heart that never shuts down, that nothing can shut down.” Kirtan, or chanting, is a part of the devotional path of yoga, or Bhakti Yoga. During a Kirtan, we offer our voices in song and celebration as an offering to the divine that resides in all of us and that connects us with everything.
Come and join your voice and spirit with the chorus and community in this workshop filled with song, story and discussion. We will learn about the path of Bhakti Yoga and the roots and branches of Kirtan. Both ancient mantra and contemporary songs will be sung and shared in a relaxed no-pressure environment. Come and sing, or come and listen with your eyes closed and heart wide open.
