KIRTAN 101 – EXPLORE & EXPERIENCE THE JOYOUS UPLIFTING PRACTICE OF KIRTAN – WEAVING MANTRA, MUSIC & MEDITATION

Join husband and wife duo, Julie Preston & Victor Tyrrell, for an uplifting, centering and healing evening of Kirtan.

WHAT IS KIRTAN?

Kirtan, the art of chanting and singing mantras to music, is from the Bhakti path of yoga – a means to reconnecting with your truest essential nature that the ancient yogis say is one of peace, love, joy, steadiness and bliss. Bhakti is the path of the heart, of love, of devotion.

In this way, Kirtan can be seen as a practice that brings you back into connection with yourself, and others, in a more loving way. It offers the mind an experience of pure meditation without having to sit still or be quiet! It helps calm the mind, open the heart, and regulate the nervous system, bringing your whole self into harmony and balance

WHO’S IT FOR?

The wonderful thing about Kirtan as a yogic practice is that absolutely everyone can take part. If you can breathe, and have your vocal chords, you can enjoy the myriad benefits it has to offer. There are no beginners, and no experts – the experience of the practice is the teacher, guiding us towards ourselves. It’s an exploration of the heart that is independent of any vocal skill, musical ability or previous experience.

WHAT ARE THE BENEFITS?

Everyone experiences each kirtan individually but there are many noted benefits including:

Relieve stress and anxiety. Chanting has been proven as one of the most effective ways to stimulate the vagus nerve which makes up around 75% of your parasympathetic nervous system – your rest, digest and relax mode.

A tangible feeling of connection and community. There’s something very special happens when chanting mantras in a group setting that leads to us feeling part of something bigger than our individual selves, a sense of heartfelt connection to those we’re experiencing the practice with, even though they may be strangers to us.
