What we're about

All of us share an interest in sacred chant known as "kirtan," a devotional practice of singing, drumming, and participating in group energy for the purpose of elevating the spirit, building community, and realizing interconnectedness. The practice originated in India millennia ago, but has been popularized in the West by singers such as Krishna Das, Jai Uttal, Wah!, Dave Stringer, Deva Premal, Bhagavan Das, David Newman (Durga Das), etc. This list will be a place to share information about local kirtan events and other sacred/vibrational singing, music, and/or drumming in the Metro DC area.

"Sounds, as we know, are instruments for us to get to the Light, this mysterious understanding of Life, mentally indefinable, but known by the heart. .....In Chorale Singing (and Chanting) the healing influences are dynamized and increaased with new tones every time participants and listeners are moved by high ideals. To participate in a work like this is an opportunity to serve, to collaborate in the energetic subtlization of the planet through means of pure praise. Every time these chants are sung they bring about new perceptions and a new understanding; more elements are revealed. In the silence of the heart a universal language makes itself known and through the means of subtle vibrations of sound radiates itself." Jose Trigueirinho and Group Join us this Monday and every Monday as we chant these syllables of the Irdin language that was channeled to Jose Trigueirinho in Brazil and Daniel Gagliardo in Argentina. This language has come to us at this time to help our bodies, the planet and the field during this period of evolution of the human experience. Everyone is welcome. Please RSVP by 10AM Monday morning if you plan to join us by texting[masked]. Donations are gladly accepted. All proceeds go towards bringing these teachings to the planet.

Sound Medicine Journey at Sky House Yoga

Sky House Yoga

Sliding scale ~ $25-35 To reserve your space, please visit: http://bit.ly/SoundMedicineMarch Sound Medicine works with the energy of vibration to create shift in the body and mind. Sound healing embraces the idea that when vibration shifts, healing and integration can occur, and states of deep peace and rejuvenation result. In this gently guided session, Angela will lead participants into a comfortable and receptive state to support deep relaxation. Using a lush array of sounds, including voice, toning, and mantra, as well as frame drum, guitar, harmonium, rattles, guitar, flutes from around the world, singing bowls, sounds of nature, and the gong, participants will be bathed in healing sounds and music designed to bring balance to the chakras and to their lives. www.angelablueskies.com

Gong Medicine Journey at Fairy Fresh Farm

Fairy Fresh Farm

Registration: $35 https://bit.ly/2I7AlF8 ** Please bring cushions, blankets, yoga mat, and pillows to make yourself comfortable, as we'll be laying down most of the time. *** Space is limited, register early to save your place! There will likely not be any door registrations, as the event is expected to sell out! Of all the instruments used in sound healing, the Gong is perhaps the most powerful, and the most mysterious. Used in ancient Chinese palaces and temples, and also in the tradition of Kundalini Yoga, Gong Medicine Journeys, also called Gong Baths, are deeply nourishing and restorative. Through the intense vibrations of the sound, the body and mind are able to relax and surrender to the healing energies of the Gong, and as the waves of sound wash over participants, a deep energetic clearing occurs, leaving participants feeling balanced, peaceful, and light. www.angelablueskies.com
