3/317:30 9 p.m. Kirtan with Gretchen and friends
Kirtan is an ancient yogic practice, very different from the postures and breathing we practice. In kirtan we join our voices together in songs, singing timeless mantras; repeating the same mantra over and over until it takes on a life of its own. Kirtan is a devotional practice,meditative, opening the heart in a way very different from the other yogic practices. The ancient sages have said that chanting is the fast track to peace and foretold that it would be the most important practice for our troubled times. For info contact Gretchen, tallahasseeyoga@....
