From Mike’s website:
What is Kirtan?
Kirtan is a group participatory experience of sacred call and response chanting that will calm your mind, open your heart and build deep connection to yourself, others and the Divine.
Kirtan is a practice that blends East and West. Eastern spirituality is represented by Sanskrit mantras that will calm your mind, open your heart and allow you to connect with Divine energy. Western musical sensibilities are represented by musical influences from uniquely American/Western musical influences such as jazz, funk, soul, rhythm and blues, and rock.
As a form of collective spirituality, in Kirtan we bring our voices and intentions together to cultivate Shakti (Divine energy), allowing each participant to bring more love, freedom and creativity into their life. Kirtan is fun and easy, and no prior experience is necessary.
Kirtan with Mike Cohen is an invitation to sing, clap, meditate and dance together to create deep connection to the secret places of your soul.
