"A Kirtan is a vessel that can hold love, union, longing, separation, despair, mourning, anger.
The heart beat and vibrations increase when chanting. The sound strongly resonates the human body."
1:00pm - 3:00pm in Pasadena, California
Gathering in Celebration of Sacred Sound
The afternoon begins with pranayama, yogic breath work to open the senses and bring peace to the mind. The practice of pranayama profoundly nourishes the internal systems, unblocking conscious life-energy throughout the body and mind.
The heart of the program is our Kirtan, chanting mantras as a form of community song. Kirtan comes from the path called Bhakti Yoga, a direct experience of Universal Love with the intention to create a vibrational cascade of healing.
"An ancient practice, rhythmic repetition of poems, sacred mantras, and prayers for the divine brings us closer to a state
of pure, heart-centered consciousness".
A beloved Swami once said,
"Every name is filled with countless powers.
Sweeter than all sweet things, more auspicious than
all good things, purer than all pure things,
is the Name ( of the Divine )."
You don't have to know how to chant in Sanskrit or think you have a good voice for a wonderful Kirtan. All voices join together, resonating and unfolding into a higher consciousness for positive energy.
A mantra we love:
Our own variation of the Ram Mantra
is a sweet part of our Kirtan each month!
The second part of the program is a Sound Bath with crystal bowls and natural sounds. We are blessed to introduce Thomas Klepper into our blossoming Sacred Sound community, taking us into a celestial place through his music healing. There will also be time for silence, in meditation and in deep relaxation.
Please bring a bottle of water and one or two yoga mats, blankets or shawls so that you can lay down and be comfortable.
If the ticket cost is prohibitive,
join instead by a "love donation."
