Kirtan is a call and response musical meditation that takes a minute to learn, and makes you feel good just as fast. The practice goes back more than 5000 years and can be practiced by anyone. You do not need to be a good singer, a practitioner of yoga, or a follower of any religion or set of beliefs to experience the power of kirtan. An open mind and your voice are all that is required! Combining music, mantra meditation and full body, mind and heart participation, kirtan offers a rich, immersive experience that has the power to change the world, one heart at a time.
This event is recurring this Summer, on the last Friday of the month.
Staff & Unlimited Members: $8
Kirtan Chicago is a non-profit organization run by a group of friends who love kirtan! Like most people, we are immersed in lives of career, family and responsibilities that don't always allow us the time to get together and share in our spiritual practice. For this reason, we created an initiative to meet and chant together a couple times a month. We enjoyed it so much that we decided to start an official organization to share this practice with people all over Chicago. None of our directors and organizers are paid. We love to volunteer our time as an offering and we accept donations to keep the events going and growing. We have collaborated with Kirtan friends in other major cities around the world like London, Moscow, Brisbane, Dubai, Sydney, Vancouver and many others to create a consistent experience so when you're traveling or moving to a new place, it's very likely you'll continue to be part of our global family! Join us at Nature Yoga Sanctuary and be in the moment with us as we explore the depth and beauty of mantra meditation. You can also take a moment to try out some of our instruments!
