Sunday 24th August
Join us for our 3rd Annual Bhakti on the Beach!
Near Brunswick Sqaure
Kirtan comes from Bhakti Yoga, yoga of the heart, or yoga of devotion, allowing us to connect more deeply into our hearts. It is Sanskrit chanting, sung with wonderful melodies ranging from meditative to ecstatic. It is a form of yoga for the voice, it is easy to join in and requires no background or training.
We look forward to sharing Kirtan on Brighton Beach with you all, join us for the Kirtan and bring a picnic.
Bhavana and Sivani Mata Francis will lead the first hour or so and then pass on the harmonium for anyone to sing and share kirtan with the group. So bring your instruments and voices!
This is a Free event
a monthly Kirtan evening held on the second Friday of each month. It is hosted by one of a team of Kirtan
singers, including Narayani, Haripyari and special guests!
What is Kirtan?Kirtan is chanting, a form of yoga for the voice done in a group accompanied by music. It requires no background or training, and is easily learnt. Repeating Sanskrit mantras creates a meditative and uplifted mental state, and helps to melt inhibitions that can suppress your voice and expression. You add your voice to those around you, creating a sense of harmony. Some people feel a sense of calm, others a sense of elation- it's a great way to unblock emotions and a sense of being stuck. The words and melodies are simple and repeated so that you can get into a rhythm and enter a more meditative state conducive to letting go.
Bhavana have just released their new album - Remembrance! visit www.bhavanamusic.com to buy.
