Join us for Kirtan, an ancient devotional music experience. Sing if you want, dance if you want, sit and soak in the sounds. This call and response musical style is an important expression in the Bhakti Yoga tradition which draws the mind inward and is seen as a bridge between our inner and outer selves and an expression of our desire to know and love the divine within. There is no previous musical experience necessary to enjoy and participate.
