Kirtan with The Shakti Experience

July 5, 2019 @ 7:00 pm - 9:00 pm


This ecstatic, meditative kirtan will be led by Luz Helena Florez, Ari Shine and Chitroop Taylor, with Yogeshwar Prado on tabla. It’s both an invocation of Divine Presence and a musical journey back to the heart. Kirtan is the singing of ancient mantras with the intention for it to be a vehicle for self-realization. Simply stated, mantra is one of the most powerful ways to generate Shakti-Prana or healing life force energy. When sung in a group the energy is amplified with each person supporting the creation of a unified field.

This experience is created with deep intention and space for Spirit to come forth through every participant through the medium of song and dance. We focus on spontaneously moving with and gradually increasing the energy of the group to build to an ecstatic state of connection with the One. We honor everyone’s contribution to the container and encourage singing, clapping, dancing and stillness. Other people have described our gatherings as “healing events that support deep transformation”.

Luz Helena Florez lived in Nepal and India for two years, immersing herself fully in the culture, traditions and teachings of all things Yoga under the guidance of a Nepalese Yoga Master. She is an intuitive facilitator and has a natural gift for creating a safe nest in which people can open their hearts and voices. Luz Helena teaches yoga, hosts Kirtan and offers private classes.

Ari Shine has been playing violin since the age of 4 and is so firmly rooted in devotion that it is felt in her presence and we are so grateful to have her joining us in creating this sacred space.

Chitroop Taylor is an EPY instructor, a multi-instrumentalist, and a practitioner of Bhakti Yoga. Chitroop invites an atmosphere of joy, emotional release and deep restoration for the spirit.

Yogeshwar Prado has been exploring the tabla path over the past six years. He is blessed to share tabla with receptive listeners.
