Everything you always wanted to know about Kirtan... and more!

WHEN: Saturday, January 27 from noon-3pm
WHERE: Unity Spiritual Center in the Rockies - 1945 Mesa Rd. Colorado Springs, CO 80904.
TICKETS: $35 in advance, $45 at the door.


Through fascinating stories and deep personal experiences, Mike Cohen (Kirtan Leader Institute founder) will guide you into deeper understanding of the essential elements of Kirtan. You will learn about:
* Deities, and what they represent
* Mantras, and what they mean
* Sanskrit - the ancient language of the yogis
* Saints - portals to Divinity
* The history of Bhakti Yoga
* Energetic qualities of deities and chants
* The profound wisdom of Dattatreya

Of course, there will LOTS of chanting throughout!

This fun introductory program offers a safe space for beginners to flesh out their understanding around Kirtan AND take a gentle step into leading others in the practice of sacred chant.

A limited number of program participants can choose to be guided in leading the group in a simple, yet powerful, chanting experience. You will be supported by Mike as you play the harmonium and chant to lead the group into a heart opening experience.

All participants receive an e-copy of a well-organized and useful 30-page booklet titled A Bhakti Yoga Perspective on Kirtan!
