Devotional Kirtan Chanting
I have been a long time practitioner of Kundalini Yoga and recently found my way into Bhakti Yoga and Kirtan – the devotional Hindu practice of Call and Response Chanting. It is incredibly heart-centered and healing on so many levels. Not only does the Practice of Jappa or repetitions of these sacred chants allow the practitioner to spiral inwards but the union of the group as a whole, joining in a vocal and energetic exchange is quite powerful.
In a desire to dive deeper I started learning some of the instruments and now host Kirtans for womens circles. I also developed a family program called Kids 4 Kirtan so that my own children would have these powerful and healing tools in their own lives.
Please visit my sister site for our upcoming family retreat June 11th where we gather with other families to experience these rich devotional practices.

Kids 4 Kirtan
I started Kids 4 Kirtan as a way to introduce my own children to the devotional path of Bhakti Yoga. One of the traditional Hindu Disciplines, Kirtan us a journey that focuses on the cultivation of love and devotion to God. In a world driven by technology, overstimulation and power hungry world leaders, I believe, above all else, that our children will need spiritual tools in order to fully thrive at all levels of their being.
Bhakti Yoga can be one of those tools. Known to be the “Yoga of Devotion”, its a deeply transformative pathway to self-realization which gives its devotees an experience of oneness.
Kid 4 Kirtan is a child-friendly kirtan. We use the devices of puppetry, movement, and song to experience the essence of the devotion and its direct link to the heart. I am thrilled to be bringing our kirtan to Shakti Fest in Johua Tree this year.
