KIRTAN CHANTING - The Yoga of Music & Song with Julie Preston & Victor Tyrrell

Come and experience the healing, centering and joyful effects of kirtan chanting.  Chanting is just another form of yoga to help us connect in a more loving way to ourselves and others using sound. Kirtan musicians Julie and Vic will lead you in a musical and vocal journey through sacred sounds and mantras, in the form of 'kirtan' - chanting via call and response.

If you're new to chanting, just love music or a good singalong, we'd love to welcome you. This is an exploration of the heart, independent of vocal skill, musical technique or experience so we welcome everyone to just show up, be present, sing if you want, or chant along silently enjoying your own journey. Like singing, chanting is energising, great fun and it gets us out of our heads and into our hearts. Chanting involves repeating mantras (literally means mind tool / free the mind), sacred vibrational sounds,  that help quiet the mind whilst experiencing the joy of opening and connecting to the heart. 

Some of the benefits of chanting can include: 

  • Easing an anxious or troubled mind

  • Relaxing tension in the body

  • Opening the heart

  • Being happy and joyful for no good reason!

  • Feelings of natural love

  • Deepening of self-awareness

  • Promoting healthy emotional expression and release

Chanting is open to everyone so come and join us as we close this fantastic weekend of connection and collaboration.  Bring along a drink, and a comfy cushion for sitting
