Kirtan: A Musical Meditation

  • 220 Studio 213 Southwest Ash Street Portland, OR, 97204 United States (map)

Join us for an evening of kirtan and community at 220 Studio! Kirtan is part of the Bhakti tradition, the yoga of loving devotion, and is essentially a joyous sing-along. Through call and response singing, we can experience a deep connection with one another and ourselves. Most of the chants are in Sanskrit, the language of light, which offers us the opportunity to become immersed in the sounds, not the meanings of the words. The chants are essentially stories that help us reconnect back to our hearts and one another.

Michelle and Tess will lead you in this musical meditation, offering traditional chants with the accompaniment of their harmoniums. All are welcome for this celebration, so please bring a friend! Warmth will be provided in many forms including tea, sitting supports, and hungry hearts. This offering is every other Friday and by donation.

Please note all profits from this class will go to Living Yoga, as part of their annual Yogathon!
