Nourishing our Spirits through Kirtan

Right after writing my last post I began musing on how important it is to have things that bring us joy and inspiration in order to nourish our spirits during challenging times: things like friendship, art, movement, music – these all encourage us to open our hearts and allow us to face challenges with more ease.  

I am absolutely filled with gratitude for this practice of Kirtan Chant that I have so joyfully invited into my life.  We are all part of something greater and the singing of Divine names together with others is a beautiful way to tap into this; to allow our true selves to shine through and to truly know the connection that we have with all that is. And this knowing is what will see us through even the most challenging of times.

Jai!! May we all play!!Kirtan at Lotus Centre, London, ON with Allison Menegoni and Rob Menegoni
