Fundraiser Kirtan Night
September 14, 2019 @ 7:30 pm - 9:00 pm$10
This kirtan night will be an exclusive fundraiser for Sadhu Seva Trust – an initiative to help the residents in the Indian village of Vrindavan who are in need of food, clothing, shelter, and support.
Kirtan is a live immersive practice that has been around for thousands of years, stemming from the ancient practice of Bhakti Yoga. It is facilitated in a call-and-response format, in which the lead kirtanists chant sacred words called mantras, deeply connecting with participants through music.
“The words of these chants are called the divine names and they come from a place that’s deeper than our hearts and our thoughts, deeper than the mind. And so as we sing them they turn us towards ourselves, into ourselves. They bring us in, and as we offer ourselves into the experience, the experience changes us.”
~ Krishna Das
Guiding us through this evening will be our friends, Andre, Cinnamon, Bonny and Nimai who have been trained in the art of kirtan for years.
Entry per person: $10.
