WHAT IS KIRTAN?
Kirtan is the music of yoga. It is a style of call and response singing that leads to an opening of the heart. It is a pathway to meditation. The mantra and the music draw us out of our heads and into the heart of silence.
WHAT ARE THE DANCES OF UNIVERSAL PEACE?
Simple circle dances woven together with live acoustic music. Participants sing and dance the sacred phrases from different spiritiual traditions of the world. It's a group practice, much like kirtan, but embodied through movement.
What to bring: Yoga mat; blanket, instruments, warm clothes for the mountain
