Satsang and Kirtan with Shambhavi in PDX!

Sunday, August 27, 2017
9:30 pm - 11:30 pm Satsang and Kirtan with Shambhavi in PDX!
Awakenings Wellness Center, Portland OR

Satsang = Being in Reality Together

Come learn, have fun, find community, sing
and remember who you really are.

Satsang is a lively, ancient spiritual practice from India. People gather for a relaxed, “anything goes” conversation about the nature of reality, self-realization, spiritual life, and all aspects of human experience from the most ordinary to the most cosmic.

Exactly what happens at satsang?

We chant some chants. Then Shambhavi leads a free-flowing conversation during which people ask questions about anything. The conversation is followed by open-mic, community kirtan.

What is community kirtan?

Kirtan is call and response singing accompanied by musical instruments such as harmonium, drums, bells and whatever other instruments people like to play!

We play kirtan together as a community in the ancient style. Anyone can lead the singing, or play an instrument. The emphasis is on having fun and feeling the joy of singing together. Mistakes are part of the fun.

Please join us for these unique and inspiring evenings.
