Kirtan Immersions with Mirabai Moon

If you have ever wanted to learn to play harmonium, lead a Kirtan Chant, or just sink more deeply into your devotional yoga practice, then drop in for this sweet exploration of harmonium and chant with Mirabai Moon.

Nothing compares to the feeling we get when we chant together, but we can still find ways to drop in to this zone when we are alone (All-ONE).  This is one of the reasons I have started teaching harmonium workshops, because more and more Bhaktas are wanting to add the magical drone of the harmonium to their solo practice, and share the experience with others.  There is something that happens when we close our eyes and begin to pump the bellows of the harmonium and breath with it.  Something inside gets very still.  It's like diving into a deep well.  The harmonium can be played in a very simple way and adds such a wonderful dimension to mantra practice.  It gives me such joy to give people access to this. 

In this workshop you will learn the basic mechanics of how to work a harmonium.  You will learn several very simple beginner friendly kirtan chants, so you can get started chanting while playing the harmonium right away with confidence and ease.  And you will be given chant sheets to bring home with you, so you can continue to practice your newly acquired skills at home.

For information on upcoming harmonium workshops or private harmonium lessons, please contact Mirabai Moon at info@mysticalkirtan.com
