kirtan & mantra chanting

Kirtan Nights in Auckland - Sing Your Heart Open​

Kirtan has roots in India, so many of the songs are in Sanskrit. This allows you to immerse in the sound, no words to distract the mind. The magic of the chants can then carry you within where connection with peace and wholeness is made.

Kirtan is the the yoga of the future!

Community Kirtan & Mantra Meditation - Yoga Ground, Wanaka, Sat - June 5th. 6:30 - 8:30pm

Chanting & singing ancient mantras through kirtan connects us to a sense of one-ness &  is balm for our busy minds. Its not necessary to be a good singer or to intellectualize the meaning of the mantras as they are pure vibrations that emanate healing waves of energy.  Vocal expression clears blockages, bypasses the intellect & connects you with a grounded sense of Self. 

Tickets $20. Children under 14 Free.

Havan - Vedic fire ceremony

The fire of Transformation

Havan is an ancient Vedic fire ceremony where 108 rounds of the universal mantra for healing are being chanted. As we offer to the fire transformation takes place - within us and around us.  It is a powerful practice to offer to the fire what no longer serves us and to connect with and balance our surrounding environment.
