Open to All Levels Music is a language of our souls. Come sing inspiring musical prayers together. Known in India as Kirtan (Sanskrit for “devotional chanting”), the call-and-response, rhythmic quality of these unifying prayers kindles a joyful mood and can lead to profound states of deep meditation.
A few years ago if someone would have asked me to sing in front of people, I would have longed to but would get so nervous, I would shake and sometimes sing out of tune. This was surprising to me as I have been told I have perfect pitch, whatever that's worth! This is not at all an uncommon story. Most of us long to express ourselves with clarity and an open heart-- whether this is by talking to a dear friend or singing in the car on our way to work! Chanting unlocks our breath, thus giving life back to the places in our bodies we may have shut down for years. Our nervous system conducts a delicate network of nerves that are keyed into our deepest thoughts and feelings. Singing at whatever level of experience we may find ourselves at, opens up these channels (in sanskrit, nadis) for us, leaving us relaxed and inspired.
In this workshop we will: explore our own story around our voices, learn how to deepen our listening skills and ear training, practice some Kundalini breath work, yoga, and vocal warm ups, learn some interesting facts about the history of sound, sing together sacred songs from around the world.
