The practice and philosophy of Kirtan: a universal language of the heart – Geeti and Gyan
About this Presentation
Kirtan is a spiritual practice with its ancient roots in India, involving the call and response of sacred mantras and sounds accompanied by music and rhythm.
As a group practice it provides a powerful opportunity to focus the mind, transform energy and emotion and uplift and expand the heart. It can be successfully practised regardless of whether you feel you can sing or not and whatever your spiritual or cultural background might be.
There will be a brief introduction and overview covering: what kirtan is, its benefits, why it affects us and guidelines for practice. This will be followed by the experience of Kirtan involving the participation of everyone allowing time for reflection. There will be time afterwards for some questions and answers and sharing.
