KIRTAN WITH SHANKARA & FRIENDS
Friday, May 30, 8:00 - 10:00 pm
$5 suggested donation (note: not $15 as listed on website)
Kirtan: an evening of devotional singing, chanting, and personal expression. It is part of an ancient form of yoga known as Bhakti, or the Yoga of Devotion. The meditative quality of the music promotes a joyousness of spirit. Shankara leads our group in chants and songs in Sanskrit and English, from ancient Vedic text to traditional American music. Kirtan is for everyone, the experience itself offers possibilities of personal discovery or simply, the joy of raising one's voice in song. Allow yourself the gift of making a joyous noise. It's all about the spirit and the feeling. Bring yours to share! Expect surprises and unannounced musical guests!
Ya'll know I am one of Shankara's "friends" - I play guitar and bass (and sometimes bang a drum or shake an egg!) at the West Hartford Yoga kirtans. So come if you'd like and add your energy to a room filled with spirit and sound!
