Chanting From the Heart
Friday 6th March 2020
You are invited to a Kirtan evening with Nikki Slade to revive your emotions and glow your heart.
This evening is free for all of you and your loved ones.
Come and join Nikki Slade for an uplifting evening of kirtan (chanting from the heart). Kirtan means to come together in praise to sing the name of the divine principle of our own understanding. Chanting refreshes the spirit and uplifts the soul. As we open our hearts we experience our natural state which is blissful and ecstatic. When we chant regularly we experience greater energy and clarity of mind which then permeates into all our daily affairs. You don’t have to be a singer to chant and to enjoy the session. Kirtan is, in essence, a joyful meditation where we chant together focusing on Sanskrit mantras which are melodiously accompanied by harmonium and drum.
The only thing you need to bring is your heart!
NB. Children from 10-12yrs and teenagers are welcome.
