Sing Your Heart Out Kirtan

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

Join Julia Berkeley (harmonium and vocals) and special guest Michael Reidinger (tabla) on a musical journey back to the heart. This time-tested practice of chanting mantra helps to heal the body, quiet the mind, and return you to your natural source of unending bliss and wellbeing. 

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!

Exchange: $20 (no one will be turned away for lack of funds)

Julia Berkeley has a passion for sharing practices that ignite the heart’s light. With a playful spirit and deep presence, she invites your heart and soul to shine. She offers kirtan, yoga (RYT 500) and private Soul Centered healing sessions in Ojai.

So excited to have Michael Reidinger back in his former home of Ojai. Having spent years as a key member of Kirtan band Beloved, Michael brings a whole bundle of talent and range of percussion, including tabla, to support the musical offering and uplift the heart's energy.
