Sound Samadhi Kirtan & Sound Healing events

Sound Samadhi continue to hold monthly Kirtan & Sound Healing events on the last Saturday of the month in the Northern Beaches - usually at Qi Yoga, Freshwater.

The flow is normally as follows:

6.00 - 6.15pm - welcome & introductory meditation & mantra

6.15 - 8.30pm - kirtans

8.30pm - 9pm - sound healing & closing meditation

During the mantra chanting & kirtan, participants are encouraged to feel the sound vibrations & mantras moving within, & experience their own power to shift, release, heal & uplift. 

The kirtan is followed by a sound healing, where participants can lay back, rest & integrate while listening to the divine conversation between the mystical sounds of the hang, etheric flute, Tibetan bowls & voice.

'Samadhi' + 'kirtan'

What is 'Samadhi'?

Samadhi is the supreme state of liberation or bliss, which is the ultimate goal of all yoga. Kirtan is an ancient yogic practice, combining mantra, music, meditation & the heart, which can offer us a taste of this Samadhi through sound.

What is kirtan?

Kirtan is a sacred spiritual singing practice for the upliftment of everyone, regardless of caste, creed, worldly status or religious inclination.

 

Kirtan is the practice of transforming emotion through devotion, channelling our energy effortlessly upwards through mantra & sound, literally raising our vibration.

 

You don’t need any prior experience to take part. This is your personal connection to the peace within you through your unique voice & heart, carried by the collective energy of the group & music.

'When the kirtan is harmonious with so many people, it’s a tumultuous beautiful sound. We can’t hear just one voice during the chorus; or rather we do hear one voice. But that one voice is actually the sound of everyone’s voice in harmony. That’s our offering to the Divine. And why is it so pleasing to the Divine? Because we are all cooperating for a higher purpose. We are all united... in spite of all our differences' - Radhanath Swami.
