We would like to invite you to the picturesque surroundings of Wasing Park to join with us in an evening exploration of Kirtan.
Kirtan is a deep dive into the heart through co-created song. It is a conversation with that inner place in each one of us that is ever unified with everything in creation; it is a practice of communion with all that is. In our gathered community we mainly sing together in the ancient powerful language of Sanskrit. Each Kirtan repeats simple mantras which invoke a trance-like state within, as well as evoking the spirit of Bhakti: the mood of love.
Every time we come together for Kirtan the experience is unique, as everyone in the space adds their voice, and in doing so contributes their special spice to flavour the collective soup we brew together. All are invited to be at home here to express the truth of themselves, through these songs of freedom. We co-create healing sounds, music as medicine, kindling the process of transformation which can move through us as ecstatic or cathartic dancing, sweet tears, deep peaceful stillness, the warmth of an inner joy, or other expressions.
All are welcome, no experience necessary
This offering will be held in the nourishing woodland venue at Wasing Estate in Berkshire, near Reading. This is the site of Medicine festival and many other holistic gatherings. Beautiful prayers and connections have been formed on the land at Wasing for over ten years, and most people who visit return time and time again to rest in the welcome of the earth, trees and lakes. There is an ancient Yew tree to pay a visit to, and the opportunity to enjoy a wild swim in the private woodland lake
