Monthly Community Kirtan
This month we have Guest Musician: Emily Sat Sukh Sat Sukh came into the world with a song in her heart. Her life is dedicated to the intricately related studies of sound, music, art, and yoga. Through these studies she continually reaches deep self-knowledge, heartfelt compassion for humanity, and grateful awe for the power of vibration. Sat Sukh spent most of her formative years in classic vocal techniques training and performance, studying with university professors of Vocal Music. Iyengar Yoga found her at 16, and she has devoted nearly 20 years of her life to daily practice and study of yogic arts. She is in a constant state of experiential understanding of the trifecta that is the sound current: Sphota – transcendental sound, Nada – supersonic sound, and Dhvani – sound that is heard by the human ear. Sat Sukh shares mantra and sacred song with unbridled joy and appreciation. Her performances are a devotional practice in action. Her melodies and voice carry the sound current to invoke and awaken the divine qualities latent within the heart of humanity What exactly is Kirtan? Kirtan is a call-and-response style song or chant set to music expressing loving devotion to a deity and/or spiritual ideas. Open to anyone who is looking to find more about spirituality. We will start by giving an explanation of the mantras so you are able to fully understand the meaning of each song and connect. The act of Mantra Meditation aka Kirtan is so powerful! Mantras are a divine sound vibration, and by repeating this same sound vibration you are able to unlock parts of yourself and to connect deeper within.
