Meet Shambhavi in Portland! On Saturday, September 19, Shambhavi is coming to your neck of the woods for a free range satsang and open mic kirtan jam. She’d love to meet you.
what happens at satsang with Shambhavi?
Satsang is a lively, ancient spiritual practice from India. People gather with a teacher and engage in 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.
At satsang, Shambhavi gives a brief dharma talk and then leads a free-flowing conversation about anything. Sometimes we do a short, guided practice such as mantra chanting or a meditation. The conversation is followed by open-mic, community kirtan jam.
Satsang and Kirtan with Shambhavi is offered on a “Give What You Can” basis.
What is community kirtan Jam?
Kirtan is call and response singing accompanied by harmonium, drums, bells and other instruments people bring!
Anyone can lead the singing. Any style is welcome.
Shambhavi will supply a harmonium. Feel free to bring whatever instrument you like to play, or just bring yourself.
Satsang = Being in Reality Together
Come learn, laugh, find community, sing
and remember who you really are.
