Kirtan Chanting & Chai

With Bhakti Rasa: Asakti Evans, Branan Silvius & Jamie David 
Saturday 25 June

Join us in the peaceful ambience of the St Christopher’s Church hall and experience the profound healing, centring and pure joy of chanting – the yoga of song – and connect with others in our friendly community.

Yogic chanting with Bhakti Rasa involves repeating sacred mantras and sounds to create a high-energy vibration in the body and mind – bringing us back to our innate, loving presence.

Asakti’s beautiful, strong vocals and vibrant presence leads us through the sacred sounds and mantras in the traditional form of ‘kirtan’ – chanting via call and response. Asakti is accompanied by Branan Silvius, a dedicated Druhpad vocalist of Hindustani Raga music, along with Fremantle musician-singer-songwriter Jamie David. Listen to Asakti, Branan and the Momentum community chanting here.

Like singing, chanting is energising and great fun! It gets us beyond our mental chatter and into the depths of our heart.

Chanting is for everyone – it requires no experience or singing ability.

If you already practice yoga or meditation, then chanting is another dimension of authentic practice and a powerful way to deepen your Self-exploration and inner peace.

If you’re new to chanting, just love music or a good singalong, we’d love to welcome you! Chanting is a non-judgmental exploration of the heart, independent of vocal skill or musical technique.

“Thanks for such a wonderful evening. The chanting was amazing, incredible vibrations and feelings of joy.” ~ Carli

We keep it simple and real – there’s no frills, but plenty of heart and soul!

Stay afterwards and join our friendly community for a chat over a healthy vegetarian supper – including our delicious homemade chai. That’s warm, milky, Indian-spiced tea, caffeine and dairy-free.

The benefits of chanting include:  

  • Easing an anxious or troubled mind.
  • Relaxing tension in the body.
  • Opening the heart.
  • Being happy and joyful for no good reason!
  • Feelings of natural love.
  • Deepening of Self-awareness.
  • Promoting healthy emotional expression and release.

“When our voices unite, it brings us closer to each other and into the natural joy of our own hearts.” ~ Natalie 

More About Chanting

Chanting has its roots in traditional Bhakti Yoga in ancient India, stemming back around 5000 years.  And it is one of the pure forms of ‘devotional practice’ still alive and well in India today. Here in the West we are coming to appreciate chanting’s profound healing and spiritual value.

The mantras we chant are simple to learn – and words are provided. Spiritual without being religious, they are often sung in Sanskrit, the ancient language of Yoga, and represent different forms of the divine in the Indian culture such as Shiva, Krishna, Buddha or Ganesh.

Mantras are about the universal journey of the human spirit, the nature of the human heart and the beauty that resides in each of us.
