Earth Day Kirtan with Cami and Friends
The Yoga Fitness Center- Saturday, April 22 @ 1 PM - 2:30 PM
Join us for a afternoon of enlivening music, mantra and original poetry. Kirtan is a joyous form of devotional, call-and-response chanting that originated in India centuries ago. The repetition of mantra brings us into a state of collective bliss. It is a great practice for those who think they ‘cannot meditate.’ The effect of chanting mantra is immediate – mind is stilled, heart is opened, and spirit is set free. Kirtan is non-denominational. ~ ANYONE can participate ~
