Community Kirtan for Peace

Sat Dec 17th, 6.30-7.30pm

Singing from the heart nourishes the soul with love, peace and harmony! Join Ben & Radha in this joyous group practice, as they blend Western harmonies with East Indian traditions in blessed mantras in a vocal range that everyone can reach. Together, beginners and experts synchronize breath and voice in an ancient practice that is both energizing and deeply relaxing. As in meditation, kirtan offers a state of relaxed alertness, as continuous chanting silences mental dialogue, and a profound sense of connected stillness and bliss can be shared by everyone present. The harmony and renewal generated in community kirtan flows through us for days afterward, inspiring our lives and everyone around us.

Winter Solstice Aquarian Sadhana

Wednesday December 21st, 4-6.30am

This event is a first at Dharma Studio, and we're so pleased to offer it. Yogi Bhajan held the solstices as those rare and auspicious occasions when the divine cosmic energy can best help us to elevate our consciousness and our optimize health. This day has been revered and celebrated by ancient cultures since time immemorial. Join us on the longest night of the year, as we gather in the ambrosial hours to elevate ourselves together. Sadhana is a daily spiritual practice, it's a self disciple of the mind and body, to serve the soul. Sadhana can refer to any spiritual discipline done at any point in the day. However, in the Kundalini tradition, it refers to the practice done in the 2.5 hours before sunrise. So, YES, you read it right, it does start at 4am, and it's so rewarding!
