The Study Society’s Kirtan Collective with Jyoti

£ 10 28/03/2019 18:30 - 19:30

Kirtan is the yoga of sound. It is a call and response form of singing meditation in Sanskrit, the ancient language of mantra. The mantras are sacred sounds and word formulas that were discovered by sages of India over 3,000 years ago. The word Kirtan has Vedic roots and it means "telling, narrating, describing’. It is a part of Bhakti Yoga or the yoga of devotion. Devotion means different things to different people. That might be God, nature, a religion or any practise that is sacred to you. All are welcome.

Chanting creates internal peace, confidence and joy. It soothes restless minds, promotes clarity of focus and helps dissolve anger and anxiety. It is a loving act of kindness that connects us to the universal consciousness we all share. You don’t need to be a good singer to chant. This is not about giving a performance. The intention of Kirtan is to use the power of voice and mantra to meditate and come together in unity as one. It is a beautiful way to connect with the heart and generate a sense of wellbeing for oneself and others.

Jyoti Kirpalani has studied sound and Kirtan with Nikki Slade. Brought up in an Indian family, she was immersed in bhajans and kirtans from an early age. She is a trustee of The Study Society, a Reiki Master and a Healer trained at the college of psychic studies. Jyoti has also worked in the NHS supporting palliative and end of life care. Through her personal healing journey she has connected to her authentic voice and re-discovered her love of chanting.

£10 in advance (£5 members) or £12 on the door. All proceeds to support The Study Society charity which runs Colet House.

£5 Study Society Member's tickets are available on the door.

“SONG OF THE HEART” Saturday 30th. March. 11am - 9pm

Chloe Goodchild and Rebecca Nash 

Inspired by Rumi love poetry renowned devotional singer and innovative voice teacher Chloe Goodchild and Rebecca Nash, acclaimed Jazz composer and performer, bring us their latest musical offerings, opening with “The Deep Listening”.

Nikki Slade

Kirtan is the ancient devotional art of Sanskrit shared call and response.  A pioneering natural voice facilitator and renowned Kirtan leader, Nikki connects us with our true inner voice.

Michael Ormiston and Candida Valentino

As well as overtone and undertone singing acclaimed multi instrumentalist  Michael and Candida play Tibetan singing bowls, the Turkish ney flute and Shamanic drums, with music around Rumi poetry.

Sandira Michael

Sound healing works on many different levels. Leading practitioner, Sandira Michael, plays Tibetan gongs and crystal singing bowls. With the body relaxing totally, their sacred sounds allow us to let go and connect with our true selves.

The Study Society Dervish Turning and Sufi Poetry

In the 13thC. poet and mystic Jalaluddin Rumi established his Dervish order and the whirling dance of the Sema.  This potent method of experiencing both inner stillness and opening the heart, the Dervish Turning was brought to the Study Society by a Turkish Sheikh in 1963 for us to care for, nurture and teach it, and we do.  A Sufi poetry sharing followed by an open Turning Ceremony are held at The Study Society the first Friday of every month.

Vedic Chanting and Meditation

Known thousands of years ago, the recitation of the hymns of the Vedas is a sophisticated form of music and one of the oldest of unbroken oral traditions which remains to this day.

The Study Society’s Colet House Vedic Chanting Group meets on Monday evenings followed by a half hour’s silent meditation.

Movements Music

We hear music from these sacred dances, exercises and prayer which bring stillness in movement. Originally collected from across the Middle East and Central Asia by I.Gurdjieff, the Movements have been taught at the Study Society for over 70 years.
