Kirtan: The Heart of Devotion Yoga Jai Uttal

Drawing from an unbroken tradition of Indian devotional singing, Jai will introduce the ancient practice of "kirtan", the heart of devotional yoga. Kirtan is the calling, the crying, the reaching across infinite space - and digging into the heart's deepest well - to touch and be touched by the Divine Presence. With call-and-response group chanting and storytelling, Jai creates a safe space of invocation, prayer, and heartfelt expression. These ancient chants contain a transformative power and healing energy; by singing these prayers and expressing a full range of emotions, we join a stream of consciousness and devotion that has been flowing for centuries.
