Kirtan Workshop @ Shaw Yoga

January 14, 2017 @ 2:00 pm - 4:00 pm EST


Kirtan is a joyful mantra meditation set to music.  One reason it’s so joyful is that it’s collective: everyone is a full participant in the call-and-response chanting. The other reason it’s so joyful is because mantras are transcendental sound vibrations that lift the consciousness and heal the heart.

In this workshop, you’ll learn about the history of kirtan and how it’s evolving today, how to pronouce Sanskrit mantras and what they mean, and explore different moods of kirtan.

Kirtan is an offering from the heart that only requires presence and a pure intention, so don’t worry if you don’t have a lot of experience singing.  Singing will surely happen; dancing is optional but highly recommended.

Part of the proceeds from this event will be donated to The International Society for Cow Protection, an animal sanctuary and education resource located in Alachua, Florida. For more information, visit https://iscowp.org/
