Kirtan is the repetitive chanting of the same sounds. It has a hypnotic effect on the mind, thus releasing it from stress and transferring it into a state of higher consciousness and concentration. This makes us more aware of everything around us, leading to development of powerful intuitive abilities over time. We bring ourselves to higher frequencies and bring ourselves out of negativity.

Come sing till your heart dances with joy!

Let the musical vibrations lead you to a place of peace.

Chanting in Sanskrit has a hypnotic effect on the mind. 

It is relaxing and uplifting at the same time. 

Let's share the healing, joyful power of chant.

Energize yourself at this musical meditation and find the divinity already within you.

Please join us for a beautiful, blissful evening of music.

Note: no experience is necessary. 

About our presenter Jane Slotnick: As a special education teacher, I found myself exhausted by the end of the day. Wanting to give my students my best, I embarked on a spiritual journey to find inner peace.  I found the world of meditation and my spiritual journey began.  One day after mediation class I was invited to a Kirtan. Curious yet nervous since I couldn't even read music, I set off on a new journey.  Expecting to be an observer, I walked into the yoga center and quickly found a seat way in the back. As the music played and others began to sing I found myself quietly starting to sing along.  The magic of the melodies had carried me away to a place of peace. I was hooked after the first night. After attending many Kirtans, one summer I decided to treat myself to a harmonium and signed up for classes. I ventured out to yoga studios, wellness centers and retreat centers. Now with a passion to share my love for this sacred, healing, modality, I offer you to join me.
