“Bhakti is love - loving God, loving your own Self, and loving all beings. The small heart should become bigger and bigger and, eventually, totally expansive. A spark can become a forest fire.”
Fall, rise and open into love through the power of mantra and song. Join myself and Michael Reidinger for a musical journey into the heart. Let the magical vibrations cut through the entangled web of the mind and return you to the abiding peace and light that shines within.
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!
