Drumming in the Spring
Sunday, March 24th, 2-4PM (donations appreciated)
We seem to have been waiting a long time -- well, all winter
anyway -- for Spring to arrive.
Once again, drumming Master Greg, will lead us as we celebrate
the new beginnings that Spring represents with drumming, snacks, conversation
and, perhaps a gong and some crystal bowls.
This event is by donation so everyone can come. And please, don't
bring any drums. There will be plenty and a variety to choose from.
Celebrate Each New Month
First Sundays of every Month starting at 2PM
Aimee will be playing
her wonderful harmonium with Jeff accompanying her on one of his beautiful
native American flutes.
Aimee will led you in a short gentle Yoga practice to warm up your muscles so
you can sit comfortably while singing/chanting along to the Kirtan.
Class is by donation and will always be offered the first Sunday in each month
at 2:00PM. (Children 12 or older are welcome)
One of my favorite
descriptions of Kirtan is:
"Kirtan is part of an ancient form of Yoga known as Bhakti,
or the Yoga of Devotion. But in Bhakti we redefine “devotion”, we expand the
meaning to include every shade of color in the palette of human emotion,
turned towards God through song, dance, and worship. These chants have been
sung for millennium by sages, sinners, devotees, and the great primordial
yogi alchemists of old. And, as we sing, we touch the spirits of the
millions of people across the centuries who have sung the same songs and
cried the same tears. As we sing, we immerse ourselves in an endless river
of prayer that has been flowing since the birth of the first human beings,
longing to know their creator."
