Vox Lumina Kirtan
with Brooke Smokelin
Friday, Nov 4th 7-9pm
Kirtan is a traditional yogic group practice/ high-energy musical meditation experience of "mantra trance-chanting"- positively powerful words and phrases rhythmically repeated in a call-and-response style with supportive instrumentation. Doing this practice of reciting- chanting and singing- mantras and affirmations with others amplifies the positive vibrations and the experience is AMAZING. In a Vox Lumina Kirtan we often add in chants and simple songs from cultures all over the world, as well as our own home tribe songs, songs of Orga, 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 with everything around you- other people, a sense of place, a feeling of One-ness induced and supported by sound.
