Our practice together will conclude with the sharing of prasad, provided by the organizer.
Sacred Song Meditation (called Kirtan in Sanskrit) is a time-honored part of the bhakti yoga tradition. Just as people are sensitive to the vibrations of their surroundings, they can also be affected by music. By singing specific sacred songs, the resulting sound creates a vibration that acts upon the physical and spiritual body, realigning the body with its natural state. This promotes healing and creates feelings of peace, heart-openness and clarity. Meditation arises as the singer maintains relaxed and open awareness on the sound and the sensations in the body.
Kimberly Mangino has been offering Kirtan for several years. She enjoys singing in community with others and has experienced the many benefits of this spiritual practice. She creates a safe, supportive environment for Kirtan singers at any experience level, allowing everyone to experience the joyful, uplifted heart that arises from this powerful spiritual healing practice.
