“I want to sing like the birds SING, not worrying about who hears or what they think.” ~ Rumi
This Kirtan will be a SPECIAL EDITION. We will actively align our intentions with our inner most truth and offer up our voices to the divine, ever allowing the arms of Love to carry us trough the night.
YES! We will sing ALL NIGHT LONG.
In this VIGIL* we’ll chant through the night, at times we’ll introduce periods of silence and we might even explore some light nightly physical movement for those inclined. (Those who wish to remain silent may ofcourse at all times do so).
So what to expect?
– Chanting, singing, sounding
– Medition (silent & dynamic)
– Poetry readings
It may be evident that the celebration of the Heart is called upon, and at all times we may dance and give expression to our inner most stirrings. However, slightly different from what you might expect if you’ve sang with us before, this night will be charged with an intention of sacredness. Some guidelines will be handed out (such as no speaking), in order to hold space for the whole group to travel together; to dive deep, deeper, through.
We’ll gather with a group of dedicated singers and musicians to keep the energy flowing.
During the night we’ll feed ourselves with love, tea and ~Ceremonial Cacao~ (freshly brought by our own hands from Mexico and Guatemala), in the morning we’ll have a sharing + fruits & jummyness.
*Alright.. but what’s a vigil? The word ‘vigil’ explained by several dictionaries wakefulness maintained for any reason during the normal hours for sleeping / an event or a period of time when a person or group stays in a place and quietly waits, prays, etc. / a devotional exercise or ritual observance on the eve of a holy day. Such liturgical vigils usually consist of psalms, prayers and hymns, possibly a sermon or readings from the Holy Fathers, and sometimes periods of silent meditation.)
“There is a candle in your heart, ready to be kindled.
There is a void in your soul, ready to be filled.
You feel it, don’t you?” ~ Rumi

Sounds nice but.. WTF is Kirtan?: http://newworldkirtan.com/what-is-kirtan/
“The heart is
The thousand-stringed instrument.
Our sadness and fear come from being
Out of tune with love.
All day long God coaxes my lips
So that your tears will not stain
His green dress.
It is not that the Friend is vain,
It is just your life we care about.
Sometimes the Beloved
Takes my pen in hand,
For Hafiz is just a simple man.
The other day the Old One
Wrote on the Tavern wall:
“The heart is
The thousand-stringed instrument
That can only be tuned with
