Community Kirtan

This month only: Third Friday, March 16, 7 PM

On Friday, March 16, at 7 PM, we are welcoming a new artist: Shakti’s Light, featuring Unitarian Universalist Society: East’s own Jenn Richard. Please note the date, as it is the third Friday, a change from the regular schedule.

Shakti’s Light consists of singer-songwriters Vicky Hannon and Jenn Richard, performing mantras in a combination of original music and familiar tunes. The duo has been performing together in bhakti yoga settings since 2009, providing live music for various yoga classes and leading kirtan. Their style is an energizing acoustic guitar-based rock, with an emphasis on tapping into universal spirit. Vicky and Jenn believe that music makes the world better in a far-reaching way that anyone can experience, regardless of personal faith, or perceived vocal talent. Come and experience Shakti’s Light and share your voice!

A $15 donation is requested. No one is turned away.

This kirtan is held in a scent-free space. Feel free to bring your own floor cushions. Chairs are provided.

Upcoming Kirtans

Music and Mantra: Community Kirtan

Join us for an evening of kirtan in the Western style: a fusion of melodic folk rock, reggae, blues, and other genres with Sanskrit mantras. Leaders guide the group in the call-and-response singing of mantras, co-creating a sacred space in which to be uplifted, deepened, comforted, and revitalized. You may sing along, dance, do yoga, or just meditate and soak in the heart-opening, high vibration. No experience necessary. $15 donation suggested. No one turned away. Co-sponsored with the Music Committee. For more information, please see Central Connecticut Community Kirtan,
