Kirtan with Jyoti Kirpalani, Fri 6th March, 7.30-9.30pm
Aho welcomes Jyoti Kirpalani for the first time to Aho. Kirtan is a form of meditation using sound; it is the union of sacred sounds and our own voice, allowing us to connect to directly to our heart bypassing the brain. It can be a truly powerful and uplifting experience that connects us to our true joy.
The word Kirtan has Vedic roots and it means "telling, narrating, describing’. It is a part of Bhakti Yoga or the yoga of devotion. Devotion means different things to different people. That might be God, nature, a religion or any practise that is sacred to you. Chanting creates internal peace, confidence and joy. It soothes restless minds, promotes clarity of focus and helps dissolve anger and anxiety. It is a loving act of kindness that connects us to the universal consciousness we all share.
No previous experience is required and all are welcome.
There will be a harmonium and some wonderful drumming to support us to raise our vibration.
We will have a small altar and you are welcome to bring an item that you wish to have blessed.
Price: £18 booking in advance via www.aho.community website or £20 on the night. Limited to 20 places, Non Refundable.
