Kirtan- Power Chants for Healing, Change and Transformation

  • Wholistic Sound 104 Blueberry Lane Tiverton, RI, 02878 United States

Please join us this Friday evening as we chant simple but powerful mantras to heal our own hearts and minds and become the change we want to see. All are welcome. Yes, your kids too- kids love kirtan!

All cultures have used devotional singing for millenia as a means of connecting with the divine. Kirtan originated in India and is a spiritual practice in the form of call-and-response chanting- a joyful devotional practice of release and surrender calling out the names of God through song.

In Jai Uttal's words "Kirtan is the calling, the crying, the reaching across infinite space — digging into the heart’s deepest well to touch and be touched by the Divine Presence.

Kirtan is singing over and over the many names of God and the Goddess, the multi-colored rainbow manifestations of the One. It is said that there is no difference between the name and that which is being named, and as the words roll off our lips in song, the Infinite is invoked, invited, made manifest in our hearts."
