Mark your calendars! Kirtan Event on Wednesday June 26, 7 p.m.
Kirtan or Kirtana (Sanskrit: कीर्तन; IAST: Kīrtana) is a Sanskrit word that means “narrating, reciting, telling, describing” of an idea or story. … Many kirtan performances are structured to engage the audience where they either repeat the chant, or reply to the call of the singer.
If you attended the church service April 28, you will have had the opportunity to be immersed in meditation by chanting. That was a brief taste of the 90 minute chanting, with the quartet of Lee Mirabai Harrington singing, and the audience members repeating, that will be presented on Wednesday evening June 26. This will be the first time such a kirtan presentation has happened in our church. If you are interested in any kind of mediation or yoga, or if you’re just curious about the effect that such mantra singing can have on you, plan to attend.
More information will be upcoming.
