Renown International Musicians & Songwriters from SYDNEY
Awaken to the Sacred in Sound
"Voice in Yoga is a dynamic discovery of the natural voice in union with mind body and spirit. It is from this union that self expression and communication can become clear, conscious and liberated. This unique approach offers a melding of ancient yogic traditions with contemporary holistic sound healing, deep meditation and exploration into Eastern and western vocal techniques."
Creating a sacred space where you and your friends can sit silently together is a profound practice. It transcends social boundaries because there is no need for polite conversation. It is a time to ‘be with ourselves’ – to give ourselves that extra time that we so easily overlook. Sacred Music is a great support on our spiritual paths. We come together, in our aloneness, and it brings us closer as friends, because we find ourselves in a sacred space together, without judgement, where all is One.

Sacred Sound Kirtan is a very different kind of music. Based on ancient chants, it has the ability to quiet the mind if listened to with intention. Everyone experiences kirtan differently, and it doesn’t have to be a religious experience. You can think of it as a sing-along. A kirtan concert is not your typical concert either. Everyone sits on the floor, although chairs are usually available. The performers are accessible, in fact there’s not much of a distinction between performers & audience. The wallah (leader) sings the mantra, and the audience sings it back. A single chant can go on for up to forty minutes. As you sing with each other you experience a deep connection with the musicians, the other audience members and yourself. And when the music stops, your mind is quiet.
