Community Kirtan

With Michael Aronoff

Friday, June 23rd, 6:30-7:45pm  
In it’s simpiliest definition, Kirtan is devotional song, a means to express adoration for the divine. Adoration expressed in song is considered to be the highest form of devotion. It has been said that singing kirtan is a virtue unsurpassed, the way and means to overcome the effect of ego.

Kirtan is a very different kind of music.  Based on ancient chants, it has the ability to quiet the mind if listened to with intention.  Everyone experiences kirtan differently, and….

  • It’s not so much a performance as a journey into the self through the practice of listening & singing.
  • The leaders are called wallahs, and everyone is part of the music.  Think of it like singing around a campfire, or a group sing along with joy and some meditation.
  • No one cares what you sound like when you sing.  You can experience your own voice becoming as beautiful as those performing-all voices merge together to become One Voice.

At Awaken, our Kirtan is a heart-opening community experience.

Join us for these special nights!
Cost: $10
