What we're about

Minnesota Kirtan Gatherings is your source for events related to kirtan, chanting, devotional singing, and mantra music in Minnesota and sometimes Western Wisconsin. These gatherings are supportive of the personal exploration of the spiritual path and living in community with an open heart and mind. Kirtan is a devotional practice, rooted in Bhakti yoga. Chanting and devotional singing creates an instant connection to the Divine, regardless of denomination.

Our organizers and event hosts make every effort to list all available events that may be of interest to our community. Please check the calendar for a list of events such as:

There is also a related group on Facebook (Minnesota Kirtan Gatherings) where we repost the events from this meet-up to attract an even wider audience.

Thank you for your support. Looking forward to seeing you at an event soon!

Zikr-The Sufi Ceremony of the Remembrance of God

Online event

Zikr means the Sufi Ceremony of the Remembrance of God, a traditional ecstatic practice of the Sufis.
There is a Zoom meeting every Wednesday at 7:00 facilitated by Hakim and Karima of the Light Upon Light Sufi Center.
The Wednesday meeting is a zikr of the Chisti Sufi lineage that passes through Hazrat Inayat Khan.
We sing the Names of God and so doing draw closer to the Beloved, the Friend. This is powerfully, peacefully, and lovingly felt.
We read Rumi aloud in the breaks between singing. His poems speak of the states brought about by zikr, and of the language and logic of the Heart.

To attend you must send an email to Hakim at [masked] and ask to be sent the link for the meeting.
