About This Retreat

Kirtan, or group chanting of mantra, is a wonderful, simple and accessible tool for uplifting our energies and attaining peace of mind. Kirtan offers a timeless antidote to our busy and complex lives; helping us to reawaken our natural rhythm, joy and sense of connection.

During the retreat, you will learn different traditional Kirtans and become familiar with the special Kirtan rhythm. You will also be introduced to how to play the harmonium, as well as how to play a simple rhythm on a drum and associated percussion instruments. 

“It was so magical to have the opportunity to ‘have a go’. I really felt encouraged and held, and I especially appreciated the 1:1 session - so special!” Lizzie Gibbons, previous participant

More About this Retreat

In Kirtan, the rhythm provides the boat, the melody the sails, and the lead singer guides the group to an island of peace. From there our eyes open to a new way of perceiving, our mind is uplifted, and our heart celebrates a new way of being. Having experienced the beauty of this island, it calls to us to return again and again. 

Open to all who wish to learn the joy of Kirtan.
