Kirtan is a yogic group practice/ high energy musical meditation experience from the bhakti yoga tradition of “trance-chanting” mantras- positively powerful words and phrases rhythmically repeated in a call-and-response style with supportive instrumentation. (Think Krishna Das or Snatam Kaur.) Doing this practice of reciting- chanting and singing- mantras and affirmations with others AMPLIFIES the positive vibrations and the experience is uplifting and transformational.
In a Vox Lumina Kirtan (aka “Brooke’s Bhakti Bliss”) we often add in chants and simple songs from cultures all over the world, and sing together to lift our hearts to a higher vibration. Lots of drumming! Lots of singing! Lots of smiling! Lots of bliss! All voices weave together as one in an ecstatic “tribal vocal trance”. Hearts open to harmony and entrainment! Again, every cell of you vibrates and comes into resonance and a feeling of Oneness is induced and supported by sound.
