About the event

In response to so much enthusiasm and need for input and support, I’ve decided to offer some groups to nurture all of you fledgling (and not so fledgling) kirtan-wallahs. There is a rapidly growing number of people feeling the call to share this Divine practice with others and I really feel to support that in whatever ways I can - so we can all be seeds in the Bhakti Boom-Boom! The more of you that feel empowered and confident to share, the more we can bring this precious practice to people all over the place :-)

It feels to me that a way to not only make this more accessible / affordable and also more rich and nurturing is to connect in groups. These will be aimed at people who can already play and chant some - or many - chants. The content will vary according to who takes part in each group but each group will offer:

- a chance to ask those random niggling questions that are particular to kirtan

- tips on what works best when sharing kirtan

- a chance to practice particular challenges - eg. speeding up with a percussionist

- a safe and encouraging space in which to practice leading chants with a supportive group

- an (optional) opportunity to receive positive feedback either from me or the group or both

- tools for overcoming nerves or low self-confidence

- vocal warm-ups and basic voicework

- harmonium-playing techniques, practices and simple chord progressions

- group size capped at eight to give space for individual attention

- a way to connect with other kirtan-wallahs and build up your own support network

- an opportunity to practice chants you already know and learn new ones from each other
