Pilgrimage of the Heart Kirtan


Pilgrimage of the Heart offers Kirtan, a musical meditation practice, free to the community, on Thursday evenings at 8:30pm in the Normal Heights east room. Kirtan is a chanting meditational practice with it’s origin in the Bhakti tradition of yoga; The practice of devotion to your creator. By singing and chanting we vibrate our bodies in a very primal way. Singing feels good! And by occupying our minds with a ‘Mantra,” a meaningful devotional phrase we are better able to focus our attention on the task at hand… devotion to our creator, creation and our place in it. At it’s very best Kirtan is a deeply profound and moving meditational practice. Pilgrimage of the Heart Kirtan plays chants from the five major faith based systems, ancient and contemporary mantra and song.
