Of course the drums, shakers and front row seats are reserved for the kids, but well behaved parents and older brothers and sisters are welcome as well! See you there!!

The Yoga of Voice

Jai Uttal, Miten, Krishna Das, Deva Premal, and many more

Where: Omega Institute
150 Lake Dr
Rhinebeck, NY
Tickets: Register here.
Website: www.eomega.org
Details: Join us for our 12th annual Ecstatic Chant retreat, one of the most popular events at Omega. A remarkable opportunity to experience some of the Western world’s leading devotional singers, this inspiring weekend nourishes the soul with a rich tradition of musical prayer and meditation.

Known in Sanskrit as kirtan, devotional chanting awakens a longing in the heart for the experience of inner silence, boundless love, and intimate union with the divine. Emerging from Hindu traditions in India, kirtan is practiced by millions of people. The call-and-response, rhythmic quality of these unifying chants kindles an exhilarating, joyful mood and is accepted as one of the surest paths to enlightenment. In recent years, pioneering musicians and seekers have brought this magical tradition to the West.

Throughout the weekend—including an extraordinary all-night Saturday session—we explore a variety of chants and chanting styles, interspersed with rejuvenating sessions of meditation, yoga, and story sharing.
