Kirtan with the Vandanam Kirtan Band ~ $15
Join Beth Gatchell and George Shumway ("Vandanam") as they facilitate an evening of call-and-response chanting, known as kirtan. Vandanam means "an offering of prayer." You are invited to rock and roll and raise your vibration as we sing to each others' hearts. No experience needed and all voices are welcome. We use the voice and the heart as tools to bring about inner transformation through the repetition of mantra ~ ancient, sacred words with a characteristic vibration. And when we use our hearts and our voices as a loving expression, the whole room is uplifted, rejuvenated, transformed. Join us in the spirit of play, joy and grace.
Beth and George have been offering prayer as a duo for 8 years for groups large (sometimes on national stages) and small (sometimes for 2 people on a Sunday night in the lobby of a yoga studio). As the saying goes: "it's all good." Transformation happens everywhere! Instrumentation is guitar/bass/harmonium/percussion and vocals. Namaste!
