First Friday Kirtan Dance & Chant

Generating a wave of peace together, the timeless vibrations of Vedic wisdom ring through every chant.  We open with a traditional Indian kirtan invocation, the Shanti mantra,  and a beautiful blessing ceremony, Aarti, closes our kirtan.  And familiar song that delights and surprises, uplifting us at the very end!  The CCL Kirtan Ensemble dynamically leads us through an evening of traditional Sanskrit call and response.  Sing ancient mantras, meditate, dance to ancient rhythms, and just be, as the energy builds. Join with others in community whose hearts are opening as we continue this recurring event at the CCL, the first Friday of every month.  Suggested $10 donation. 

Parking at rear of building, or on S. Paterson or E. Washington Sts.

      Yes I did, it was wonderful but a bit too much for me at the moment. However I hope to rejoin you all in August!

      This kirtan experience was my introduction to the devotional form, and since, I have been checking out others on YouTube. Sometimes I want much more meditative chanting. I suspect the intensity and energy of this one can be a bit much if one isn't prepared. I had another friend who found it exhausting. Different strokes, right? Please consider coming to CCL for a Sunday Celebration while in Madison. Very warm and eclectic and I would love to see more of you if the spirit so moves you.
