Yogi P
Other Kalani - see description
Kirtan is based around the call-and-response, and sometimes unison, singing of mantras (mind protectors or mind practices), and works similarly to the Law of Attraction.

We attend to our highest attributes through vibration and sound. We use repetition to deepen and strengthen our connection. We use improvisation to express our heartsong. The words come from India, and though spiritual in origin, one does not need to be religious to enjoy Kirtan. The Gods and Goddesses represent various aspe
cts of ourselves.

No experience or dogma necessary. Come as you are, ready to sing, dance, or simply take it in. Namaste!
