Kirtan, Chanting from the heart in Chelsea
Chanting (Kirtan) is a deeply inspiring practice that opens the heart and reveals the experience of our own true nature. It calms the mind and helps us to release unwanted tensions allowing us to experience the freedom within. We chant in Sanskrit, a language revealed by sages in ancient times as the language of the heart. There is a deep wisdom within the vibration of each chant (Kirtan) and each individual has their own unique experience of grace through the power of chanting Nikki Slade is resident Kirtan leader at Triyoga, and has recorded four highly acclaimed CD’s: Nectarine, Monsoon, Soundscape and the most recent Epiphany. Nectarine was highly recommended by world-renowned tabla player Talvin Singh; Monsoon was publicly acknowledged by Dr. John De Martini, and Nikki's sound meditation Soundscape has provided thousands of people with an easier way to quiet their mind and is used by leading yoga studios and motivational groups across the world.

What we're about

This group welcomes everybody from absolute beginners to seasoned Chanters of this Bhakti practice. Chanting (Kirtan) is a deeply inspiring practice that opens the heart and reveals the experience of our own true nature. It calms the mind and helps us to release unwanted tensions allowing us to experience the freedom within and connect with pure joy. We chant in Sanskrit, a language revealed by sages in ancient times as the language of the heart. There is a deep wisdom within the vibration of each chant (Kirtan) and each individual has their own unique experience of grace through the power of chanting. Chanting (Kirtan) replenishes the soul and unites us with one another and is the perfect way to experience the joy of singing in a group where the focus is on participation rather than performance. Nikki leads these sessions with voice, harmonium and drum. You can join her in singing a range of easy-to-learn devotional and uplifting chants or just bask in the sound of the chants.

No singing experience essencial and you do not have to be a singer to enjoy this practice.

'Chanting makes meditation easier if you find it difficult, and deepens an existing meditation practice'.
