A Night of Kirtan

Meditation doesn't come easily for many people.  Kirtan - one of the oldest sacred music traditions of the world - offers another method.   Kirtan is a call-and-response style of singing sacred chants.   Kirtan carries us effortlessly to a place of quiet, to stillness.  While it is true that we can sing these chants in the solitude of our own homes, there is nothing like the magic of chanting live with musicians and other participants all adding their energies to the experience.

It’s the heart, not the art.   The purpose of Kirtan is to get us out of our heads and into our hearts.
Chants heal.
The powerful healing and transformational energies of these ancient chants can help to reconnect us to the Ever-Present and Eternal Being that lies within us all. All the mantras, melodies, and instruments of Kirtan are designed to lead us toward this meditative state.
The beauty of relaxation.
Kirtan brings us back to our center. When this happens, beautiful things begin to unfold. Feelings of inspiration, peace, and a sense of connectedness are common experiences.
Come, sing with us.  Friday evening, October 26, 2012, 6:00-7:30pm, at Radiance, 9 W Grant St, Lancaster, PA, across the cobblestones from Central Market.
Bring a blanket and/or yoga mat to sit on, a pillow if it helps you to sit on the floor with more comfort, and dress in layers. 
Cost is $15 in advance, $20 that evening.  Call Radiance, 717-290-1517, or stop in to register.
