All Love – Kirtan Festival

All Love - Kirtan Festival Sunday 2nd June 2019

 

Join us on 2nd June for this special all day Kirtan chanting celebration in aid of CRISIS, the homeless charity.
Kirtan, the practice of chanting, opens our hearts and as our voices come together we can experience inner joy, peace, bliss and freedom.
This all day, all for love festival will run over 10 hrs with over 20 inspirational leaders including Nikki Slade and Sivani Mata Francis and Tom Simenauer Aka Tabla Tom.

We hope to create something unique for a great cause, much needed in our community.
We will be chanting mantras which come from the Indian tradition of Bhakti yoga, the yoga of love and devotion. Together we create a space of joy and ecstatic energy with experienced leaders and drummers. The intention is to bring us to a place of inner bliss; Our true nature.

Crisis support homeless people all across the UK and in London. On any given night there are up to 4000 people sleeping rough. Homelessness has Increased by 125% over the past decade and we wanted to play a small part in helping those in our community who need support, so profits from the event will go to the charity.
