Kirtan is a participatory musical rhythmic meditation. To participate in kirtan, one doesn't need to be able to sing or play an instrument. It's all about vibration and connecting to source. Our intention through the tradition of Kirtan music and chanting is to bring more health and love into our own lives and also into the world!
