Join us at 288 Monroe Avenue, Rochester, 14607 (above Natural Oasis) for First Friday Kirtan. There is a restorative yoga class beforehand from 5:30 - 6:45PM, leaving you some time to go eat downstairs at the Natural Oasis. Sing, dance, or meditate in joy. The Sanskrit word Kirtan means praising, as in praising the many names of God. In a traditional Kirtan the audience gets to sing along and no memorization is required. It’s all done in a call-and-response style. Kirtan is profound and fun all at the same time. The audience is encouraged to express their love for the Divine in all its forms while chanting, and perhaps even dancing in the back of the room! The Kirtan is led by Sonam Targee and Ensemble and has been going on for year’s at this location every First Friday of the month.

A sound bath nourishes and relaxes the nervous system. Brain-waves are gently slowed down into the Delta and Theta patterns that provide a space for deep healing in body, mind, and soul. Participants are encouraged to recline [or sit] and let the sounds wash over them. You can go as deep as you like in a sound bath; lay back and simply enjoy some peace and quiet or perhaps be taken away to "another place." Sonam uses instruments such as the didgeridoo, jaw harp, bamboo flute, gongs, shakers, singing bowls, rain-stick, recorders, dulcimer, Native American love flute, quena, and of course the voice. Props are included and seats are set up for your comfort ahead of time [mat, blankets, bolster]. Please let us know ahead of time for any special accommodations. ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~ Sonam Targee has been giving sound baths, concerts, and the traditional yogic kirtan for many years. He also has been practicing Ayurveda and alternative medicine for the past 35 years. Sonam's background in music and spirituality come through in each sound bath; they are all unique and provide a platform for deep transformation.
