What is Kirtan?
Kirtan is a community happening that uses Sanskrit Mantras in a call and response method that brings unity and uplifts the collective energy. Names of the divine are chanted to awaken divine presence within us and around us. Kirtan is a Bhakti, devotional and heart felt practice that is accessible to all.
No experience is required. You will be introduced to various deities, which represent the various qualities of the ONE.

The effect of chanting is scientifically proven to elevate our mood and to open our minds and hearts to our full potential.
