  • Ojai Yoga Shala 306 East Matilija Street Ojai, CA, 93023 United States (map)

“To open fully to kirtan, to the singing of the divine Name, is to know this sweetest form of bliss.”

~ Ram Dass

Tap into the healing power of sound in a divine evening of mantra and song. Julia Berkeley, Dave Cipriani, Katrina Maclachlan and Leonice Shinneman invite you to join them on a magical musical journey. Clear the mind, drop into your heart and awaken inner harmony, peace and pure love through this ancient practice of Kirtan. Tune in and tune up for an amazing 2019! 

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!
