Kirtan: Sing Your Heart Out with Julia Berkeley
September 23, 2017 @ 7:00 pm - 8:30 pm$15
Sing your heart wide open! Join Julia Berkeley and friends for an uplifting evening of Kirtan. Bathe in the bliss of sacred sound and let it harmonize your being inside and out.
What is Kirtan?
Kirtan is a call and response chanting practice that moves the heart towards an experience of inner silence, boundless love, and intimate union with the Divine. Whether it’s your first time or you’ve been doing it forever this practice will uplift your heart and soul. Krishna Das says “The ability to sing beautifully is enjoyable, but not necessary. What matters is singing from the heart.” You don’t need to be able to sing, just be willing to give it a go and feel the effects!
Swami Kriyananda explains the power of chanting: “Words are thoughts crystallized. Melodies are the resonance of the heart’s aspirations. Harmonies deepen the emotional power of those aspirations. And rhythms ground those aspirations in the present. Combining thought, melody, and rhythm in a spiritual discipline can provide a powerful force for awakening.”
(From Awaken to Superconsciousness)
Looking forward to being with you in the nectar of the heart.
