What we're about

This meet up is for anyone who wants to explore the power of singing, both through he mediums of group singing and through exploring their authentic voice (Voicework practices). Whether to build confidence and esteem for work situations, personal relationships or just to realise the power and potency of their own voice in all its forms, these practices support both the speaking/ singing voice and the voice of intuition and instinctual voice. These groups offer a non judgemental supportive space to allow your voice to emerge and open.

Unleash the raw potential of your own Self, through voice and movement. Giving voice to the power and potency that we each hold within us. All levels welcome, no need to have any experience of sounding/ singing, this is not about 'singing' but more a holistic approach to the Voice, that allows the simple truth of who we are to express through sound and sometimes song. This work is perfect for building greater self expression in all areas of life. The sessions include some movement and include one to one sessions and group sessions. There are also group singing events which offer a form of call and response chanting and a perfect medium to let your voice fly, despite little or no singing experience.

Movement Medicine is a non stylised form of movement that allows space for each person to find their own authentic movement, no dance experience is necessary, nor do you have to be 'fit'. It is a form of movement meditation and is often woven within the Voicework modality to support a true embodiment of the voice. To find about more about this practice you can check out www.theschoolofmovementmedicine.com. Yasia is a qualified teacher of Movement Medicine.

The event will also be live streamed on Facebook live on our Bhakti Festival Dublin page.

It is a time to be with each other in person and online, with the unifying, elevating energy of community spiritual singing at Bhakti Festival Dublin 2021.

As with previous years, Bhakti Festival Dublin is raising awareness and funds for two charities. This year these charities are ‘Aware’ an Irish charity supporting mental health for adults and young people, and the Barbara Ward Clonliffe Community centre, offering invaluable support, classes and connection to local residents.
Bhakti Festival Dublin is a celebration of sacred music and meditation, this year we will celebrate a 3 and half hour journey of devotional music in the form of Kirtan (call and response chanting) and other forms of chanting.

Given the times we are in, we of course will be making a few adjustments this year:
- maximum 50 people in the hall
- doors/windows open to create airflow (bring a jacket / meditation blanket!)
- hand sanitizer will be available
- There will be spaced seating, and for those of you who like to sit on the floor please bring cushion/ props to be comfortable

Note:

Please bring your own face mask if you wish to wear one.
- There will be light refreshments available for sale on the day but please also bring your own snacks and flask/ tea cup/water bottle.

No experience of these singing or chanting practices are needed. The aim of these practices is to connect to your heart through your voice and to dive into the experience of singing as a way to relax the body and mind and nourish the soul. The intention of the Festival is to uplift hearts, through the power of devotional music, with some of Ireland’s well loved chant leaders, Chanting & Chai, Felicity Ananda and Yasia.
We so look forward to connecting with you in person! & chanting our hearts out!
