GaneshGoldStarA little about our style of Kirtan:

Our goal in kirtan is that everyone in the room can comfortably sing along together, beginners and experts alike.   Song sheets are always provided, so everyone can see and hear the words. We focus on traditional chants that are simple and melodious and in a vocal range that most people can sing in.  We play traditional instruments; Harmonium, Tabla, Kartels with Guitar and sing in a style that blends our rich Western harmonies with East Indian traditions.
 
Kirtan provides the same deep states of relaxed alertness that meditation does, in a fun, exhilarating process.  Group chanting of Sacred Mantras is simultaneously very energizing and deeply relaxing. As we sing together we begin to breathe deeply in unison. Without effort, our chattering minds are silenced and a profound state of connected stillness and bliss is felt by all in the room. Throughout the week, the peace and renewal we create in community kirtan flows through us enriching our lives and the global community.

 All Spiritual Traditions are Welcome

All spiritual traditions are welcome, we do not focus on any one teacher or teaching.  By joining together chanting, we honor all masters and traditions that each individual in the group holds dear to their hearts.

    Mantras - Yoga - Breath

We chant sacred mantras that have their roots in the ancient wisdom teachings of the Vedas.
Mantras are universal sacred sounds that were cognized by the Sages and Yogis of Ancient India while in deep states of meditation. These sounds became the language of Sanskrit. The Sanskrit word Mantra means “that which liberates us from the mind”.

Chanting mantras also establishes particular breathing patterns known as pranayama, that in turn have very positive and profound effects on the mind and body.  The quickest way to calm and still the mind, is through the breath.  The different methods of Yoga and Meditation describe many pranayama techniques, but all basically are methods of controlling and directly the prana or life- energy through conscious breathing. 

Mantras are sounds that have a universal and profound effect upon our body-mind-spirit as well as all levels of our environment. Their sound vibrations calm and stabilize us at sub-cellular levels, opening blocked energetic pathways and re-establishing the harmonious, balanced flow of energy.

Universal Blessing for the welfare of all beings throughout creation:

Lokha, Samasta Sukino, Bhavantu  X3

Om Shanti, Shanti, Shanti

May all beings, in all worlds be happy and free.
Om, we invoke the Divine Primordial Source Energy to infuse us with
 Peace in all bodies, Peace in all minds, Peace in all souls.
