Kirtan - Sacred Chanting Meditation
Kirtan, also a form of meditation is the singing of ancient Vedic mantras, spiritually uplifting songs, prayers and the Sacred Names of the Supreme. Rather than being a type of performance, Kirtan is a journey of self discovery.
This ancient yogic practice was traditionally accompanied with Indian instruments. In the hands and voices of contemporary practitioners, Kirtan has been transported beautifully to all cultural and musical styles without losing its genuine spiritual authenticity.
Kirtan is held at West End on Tuesdays 7pm, Wednesdays 7pm, Friday 6:30pm, Sunday 5pm. Sessions are by donation, everyone is welcome and there is no need to book. Includes chai and sweets.
My yoga journey began 22 years ago when I happened to stumble upon a free meditation class by the Australian School of Meditation and Yoga at Burleigh Heads. I was under a lot of stress at the time and the meditation gave me such relief, I was hooked from that very first class and continued on with my daily meditation practice for many years before taking up yoga asanas. It made my life physically easier, and combining that with the mental, emotional and spiritual benefits that meditation had brought me, I had found perfect combination to living a healthy, balanced life.
