What is Kirtan?
This retreat is both the perfect introduction to a Kirtan (yoga chanting) practice for an absolute beginner as well as an opportunity for a long time practitioner to dive right in for an incredible, immersive chanting experience. If you’ve never tried Kirtan before, here is your opportunity to find what you’ve been missing out on your whole life!
Kirtan is the call-and-response singing of ancient Vedic mantras, spiritually uplifting songs, prayers and the Sacred Names of the Supreme. Rather than being a type of performance, Kirtan is a journey of self discovery.
This ancient yogic practice was traditionally accompanied with Indian instruments. In the hands and voices of contemporary practitioners, Kirtan has been transported beautifully to all cultural and musical styles without losing its genuine spiritual authenticity.
Weaving together melody, music and mantra with people responding to the words of the singer, clapping, swaying and sometimes dancing, Kirtan is simultaneously a meditative, exhilarating and fun activity.
Our unique retreat features many of Australia’s most inspiring Kirtan artists, yogis and lecturers including…
