Join us for a very special evening to celebrate the full moon and give back to our community. We start off with a Kundalini Yoga class, followed by a full moon meditation and blissful kirtan. Please note this is a combo of the Ashram’s monthly full moon meditation with our own Monthly Kirtan Night, and timings are a slightly different than usual. Bring an open mind, an open heart, and a cushion or blanket to sit on.
The entire event is by donation, we suggest $15.
Funds raised will be donated to a homeless women’s support group at Sherbourne Health Centre.
We are also seeking items that can be re-gifted for the women’s circles at Sherbourne Health Centre: unused toiletries, make-up, gifty items, second hand jewelry, gift cards, etc. Please bring your items to the Full Moon Kirtan. We will collect and deliver them.
Join us for part of the night or stay for the full evening.

What is Kirtan? Kirtan is a devotional chanting practice. In the yogic system, kirtan is categorized as pratyahara (methods which draw the mind inward). Thus, kirtan can be seen as a bridge between our outer and inner selves and an expression of our desire to know and love the divine within. Chanting in Sanskrit, Gurmukhi or any other ancient language is very powerful because these languages were created with the knowledge of how sound vibrations affect us and what feelings, emotions and awareness they create. These languages also use the tongue in ways that English does not. There is often a specific placement for the tongue, stimulating the 81 pressure points that are present in the mouth. Simply put, mantra gives us the ability to change the vibrations in our body and mind. All emotions and thoughts are vibrations and they determine how we feel. Mantra makes you feel blissful and full of love; can you ask for anything better?
