Sound Healing & Kirtan
We are an intricate and inseparable part the creative intelligence of the YOUniverse. We are energy & vibration is our medicine.
~ Join Divya & Bill for an evening of Mystical Embodiment: Sound Healing & Kirtan ~
As a spiritual practice, Kirtan can be used to chant the many names of God, or Source/Creative Energy. The word water will not get you wet. It is something that one must experience. However, by chanting ancient Sanskrit mantras, one can attune to the various personalities of the one Godhead and experience/remember the love that holds and guides us, even in our ignorance of it. Many of the mantras are in Sanskrit, therefore the meaning of these is conveyed through the vibration. As our hearts opens during this practice, you may find tears of joy filling your eyes. It is a feeling of coming home, and home is Love.
When the mantras are sung with melody and often musical accompaniment, this is called Kirtan. The power is in the mantra. But just like we sometimes put strong medicine in honey to make it more palatable, when we put mantras to melodies, it becomes much sweeter and can help open one's heart.
After a sound healing infused Kirtan, we will rest as the MindBody gets transported through space & time in an hour long Sound Journey. Divya’s musical gifts will guide you to experience your inner most self through feeling. Experiencing sound in such a way is therapeutic. You will be immersed in sounds that are attuned to high & healing vibrations that are beneficial on all energetic planes of Being. The healing sounds will bring harmony in all that they touch by surfacing certain blockages & stored emotions so that they can release.
The Sound Healing Journey features Crystal, Tibetan & Chinese singing bowls, 2 Chinese Chau gongs, chimes, bells, flute, rain-sticks, rattles, ocean drum, RAV VAST - a harmonic percussion steel drum & more.
