Kirtan is an ancient form of mantra meditation, a component of bhakti-yoga (the yoga of devotion), which has the power to open and purify the heart. This chanting, accompanied by musical instruments and rhythmic drumming, brings the audience to its feet in the joy of singing, clapping, and dancing with pure devotion. In its heartfelt expression kirtan can induce profound states or meditation, bliss, and esctasy.
Madhuri pura Das (Madhu) has been practicing and teaching kirtan for many years in the bhakti-yoga tradition. Madhu offers Kirtan music training lessons for learning how to lead and participate in Kirtan, vocal and instrument training, and the history and philosophy of Kirtan for beginner, intermediate and advanced levels.
In this special event, Madhu will teach us the mood, mechanics and methodologies of ancient devotional chanting and how to integrate it into ones daily life for divine connection. The second half of the workshop will out theory into loving practice - special, blissful group kirtan!
The cost of this special event is a suggested donation of $30
