In two weekends time my dear friend Valentina and I will be Kirtaning with him and Shiva Rea who will be guesting between a workshop and the other. The practice of Kirtan (= singing from Sanskrit) refers to the Indian art of chanting mantras, rhytmically repeated until the self melts into the song and the singing crowd becomes a unity. I have done a bit of chanting in the past and found it very empowering, but I have never devoted a whole evening to it, let alone with live music. So it will be a completely new, exciting experience for me, and I look forward to it.
