Kirtan is a calling out to the divine.
A pause, so that we can release negativity.
A clearing, so that blockages in our bodies and obstacles in our lives may dissolve.
A gathering, so that we can witness each other doing the work.
Singing mantras together can be really powerful work. If you’ve never tried it, I recommend doing a little research to find a yoga studio or community center in your area that offers kirtan. Often there are free classes around; you just have to do a little digging to find them. If you’re working on releasing fear, deepening your yoga practice, and having fun with new friends, kirtan is waiting for you :)
Tonight I’ll be singing with fellow yogis, and I’m dedicating my chanting to you, dear reader. Happy Friday!
