One of my greatest passions is leading Kirtan, which is call-and-response singing of the Divine names in the Bhakti yoga tradition, with the intention being to merge mind and body with the divine consciousness within. I first discovered the practice of Kirtan while living at Kripalu Ashram 20 years ago, and I have been a kirtan wallah ever since.

Kirtan can be lively and loud or deep and meditative, and an evening of Kirtan usually flows between the two. Dancing and clapping is welcomed and an amazing experience of blissful unity is often felt by those present. I am frequently accompanied by talented friends on guitar, percussion and vocals.
