Saturday, July 14 — 7:30pm - 9:30pm Arc of Ascent: An Evening of Kirtan with Dave Stringer
Yoga doesn't ask us to believe; it asks us to inquire and to practice, examining our experience until we can witness the truth in the book of our own heart. The call-and-response form of mantra chanting known as kirtan is a consciousness-transforming practice. The form is simple: a lead group calls out the melodies. The crowd responds, clapping and dancing as the rhythms of tablas, finger cymbals, harmonium, tamboura, electric bass, guitar, and trumpet build and accelerate. The mantras quiet the mind, and the music frees the heart. Ecstasy is both the process and the product.
There will be chairs available. If you'd like to sit on the floor, please bring something to sit on.
