Kirtan: Chanting Circles

Yoga Teacher Training in the Finger Lakes

Why Do We Chant Kirtan?
Chanting kirtan is a devotional practice that helps to uplift the mind, open the heart and bring inner peace. It is the fastest, easiest and most joyful way to achieve peace of mind. The mantras are mystical universal sounds that resonate with our chakras and remove negative energies. So, it is important that we chant so that we can benefit from this powerful healing energy ~ Sivananda Ashram

One of the goals of Kirtan is to guide the consciousness away from excessive thoughts.’ Mantra helps to guide your awareness to a place that is quiet and still.

The key to success in any form of mantra practice is repetition. When you’re sitting in a kirtan, gently bring your wandering mind back to the chant over and over again. With regular, sincere practice over time, says Krishna Das, you may notice that “thoughts don’t grab you so deeply. Emotions don’t wipe you out so completely. It changes your psyche.”

Quote: “Kirtan is singing of the Divine’s name with feeling.  Such singing has a benign effect on both the physical and subtle bodies.  It is an excellent method of soothing the nerves and directing the emotions to a positive goal”.
– Swami Sivananda in “Bhakti Yoga

No experience necessary – you will be completely guided.
