About Kirtan: Absorb the Sound, Ignite your Soul!
Kirtan is one of the oldest sacred yoga traditions of the world. It is a call-and-response chanting genre. "Say the Mantra, Repeat, Faster, Louder, Be Meaningful." Kirtan helps us connect to ourselves, focus our attention & achieve true harmony between mind, body & spirit. Kirtan is part of the yoga of sound, in which you produce sound waves & follow them with your awareness. Think Ommm! Kirtan can bring about dramatic, positive changes in overall health & wellness.
Kirtan Vancouver is a non-profit organization with the goal of bringing the community together through yoga, music and art by tapping into the world's most ancient sound vibrations and showcasing them in a modern environment. Creating an oasis in the city, we aim to channel the energy of today's youth into a tranformative event. Kirtan is a means of promoting peace through music.
The board of directors, it's supporters and all volunteers are proud to say proceeds raised from Kirtan Vancouver have gone to charities such as Canuck Place Children's Hospice, a program that provides specialized pediatric pallative care for children living with a life threatening illness and support for their families throughout British Columbia. As well as Food for Life, a non-profit organization that supplies nourishing vegetarian meals to the Vancouver downtown east-side homeless and women's shelters. This year, proceeds of all food and Green Bazaar sales will go to Food for Life.
Everyone come out and bring your friends and family share your energy and light. Where you can connect with sound and experience the mountains, water and sand that make Vancouver home.
