Kirtan comes from the Bhakti yoga tradition, the path of devotion. Having its roots in India, the mantras are sung in the ancient vibrational language of Sanskrit. It is a form of meditation, repeating names of God or Goddesses set to a melody. Essentially Kirtan is an inwards journey inwards, a form of vocal meditation connecting us to our heart centre & creating union with our own being & each other within the group.

It can induce spontaneous joyous expression, bliss & ecstasy.
