the Mandala Collective Presents
Sankirtan is a form of devotional singing from the Bhakti (Yoga of the Heart) tradition of India, done in an ecstatic and meditative call and response style. Singing and dancing have long been sacred healing practices used to awaken to the vibrancy of one’s life force, a way to connect us to spirit and a method to become fully embodied in our connection to the Divine force that sustains all life. This ancient devotional practice invites the Divine to become present wherever the sacred names are spoken, filling the space with an almost intoxicating vibration of unconditional love and ecstatic bliss!
Joining together in Sankirtan is a soulful experience of ecstatic music, chanting, dancing, meditation and prayer that creates a sacred space for connection, celebration and overflowing LOVE! Experience the powerful unifying and healing vibrations of this sacred practice that dives deep into the nectar of the heart, connecting us to our most expansive, vibrant, raw and blissful state of being.
