About Kirtan

Kirtan is call-and-response chanting of Sanskrit mantras. Each repetition of the mantra is a way to gather our awareness and concentration and to be fully present in the moment. This is a heart practice, bringing us into contact with our own true nature. It is a beautiful and powerful way to be in community. No experience required and all are welcome.
