Come and join us for a special evening of Kirtan.
Take a journey through sound and mantra into your own inner stillness. Bhavana’s kirtans, like their own voices and music, are dynamic and colourful, serving up a full range of chants, easy to follow and join in, for a powerful experience that takes you to the essential stillness inside.
Kirtan is a form of yoga for the voice done in a group accompanied by music. It requires no background or training, and is easily learnt. Repeating Sanskrit mantras creates a meditative and uplifted mental state, and helps to melt inhibitions that can suppress your voice and expression. You add your voice to those around you, creating a sense of harmony. Some people feel a sense of calm, others a sense of elation- it’s a great way to unblock emotions and a sense of being stuck. The words and melodies are simple and repeated so that you can get into a rhythm and enter a more meditative state conducive to letting go. Bhavana’s kirtans are unique throughout the world for their dynamism, creative use of the ancient mantras, range of sounds, and ability to access so many routes to the calm place within.
Suitable for all levels
Meet the Teachers
Donna’s spiritual journey began after experiencing a solar eclipse in India in 1995.
Shortly after that, she took a silent Vipassana retreat followed by a number of others, which changed her as a person and prepared her for when she found yoga, via an Ashtanga Vinyasa class which she happened across on her way to the beach in Goa in 1998.
