News and Events

What is Kirtan?

Kirtan is the yoga practice of using music as a means of transforming consciousness. It is a tribal experience of cultivating bhava samadhi, communion through emotions. It creates a shamanic doorway between worlds, invoking beings of higher consciousness and evoking our own divinity. In kirtan there is a circle of connection with no authoritarian leader. Without performer or audience, we are free to join in samadhi and realize our shared divine identity. Bring your musical instruments. Every soul is welcome to play and sing in the Kailash Jungle Band.

What is Fire Ceremony?

A yogic fire ceremony is a practice of invocation and evocation. We invoke the presence of beings of higher consciousness, and we evoke that same higher consciousness that resides within us in potential. It is a means of clarifying intention and purifying karma. The ceremony is quite simple, effective, and very beautiful. Through mantra repetition, we generate enormous positive, healing energy, which radiates within us and throughout the surrounding environment.
