Sharing the love of Kirtan
a meditation practice for everyone!
Sometimes life will lead you in many directions, the expected and the unexpected.
If you would have told me 10 years ago, that I would be chanting and singing devotional mantras and practicing mantra meditation through chanting sacred texts, I would have looked at you awkwardly …
In fact, myself like many others, are still quite new to the practice…
I love the look in people's eyes when it is their “1st time”. I can just feel their anxiousness or curiosity. I will explain a bit, then I just close my eyes and wish for their best experience….and mine.
And then, I just Chant…and they follow … (Thank God !)
My first experience was when I visited India, in 2006. I, like many folks, was not familiar to the idea of a “chanting” meditation… gee, it was so hard for me to just sit there and meditate, now you want me to sing too?
I am a singer, and have been all my life. From singing jazz, pop, country, but I never thought I'd be singing mantras.
In fact, this is not singing, like singing perfectly crafted notes and perfect breathing techniques with vibrato etc…. this is freedom from all that.
I had to take everything I had learnt from my voice practice and music and throw it out the window….it doesn't work here....no place for the ego.
There is no place for the “performance factor”, this is pure divine connection.
Here, in this “chanting” meditation class, we close our eyes and just open our hearts and voices… that’s it. So even is this is your first time , you will love it, cause it helps everyone who is open and willing to try to go deeper within themselves...
Now of course, there’s a deeper science behind all this: with the technology of the Naad and the meanings behind the texts and the power of the vibration that are embedded in every syllable and pronunciation.
I teach this in my YOGA VOICE workshops and PRIVATE MEDITATION Sessions but experiencing a kirtan is not a workshop class. This is a form of yoga, a meditation class…
Kirtan is for all who wish to connect within, without having to think too much about it, or at all…. It’s about the heart aspect.
I hope you will come experience your bliss with me. Every 1st Friday of the Month or by Private Meditation sessions
Until Then , "Feel the Bliss!"
