Kirtan - Mantra chanting to calm the mind & open the heart

Come and experience the healing, centering and joyful effects of Kirtan chanting. Chanting is just another form of yoga to help us connect in a more loving peaceful way to ourselves and others using sound. Julie and Victor will lead you in a musical and vocal journey through sacred sounds and mantras, in the form of Kirtan (meaning ‘to sing’) - chanting via call and response.

If you're new to chanting, just love music or a good singalong, we'd love to welcome you. This is an exploration of the heart, independent of vocal skill, musical technique or experience. Like singing, chanting can be energizing, yet calming at the same time. Its great fun and it gets us out of our busy heads and into our hearts.

Chanting involves repeating sacred ancient mantras (mantra literally means mind tool / to liberate /free the mind) that help quiet the mind whilst experiencing the joy of opening and connecting to the heart, soothing the nervous system, and inducing a feeling of meditation and bliss.

The benefits of chanting can include:

  • Easing an anxious or troubled mind
  • Relaxing tension in the body
  • Opening the heart
  • Being happy and joyful for no good reason!
  • Feelings of natural love
  • Deepening of self-awareness
  • Promoting healthy emotional expression and release.

Chanting is open to everyone.
