Omega’s Ecstatic Chant weekend is a chance to bring our voices together with some of the Western world’s leading devotional singers, to reunite in community, and to nourish 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 union with the divine. Kirtan emerged from Hindu traditions in India and is today practiced by millions. The call-and-response, rhythmic quality of these unifying chants kindles an exhilarating, joyful mood.
Explore a variety of chants and chanting styles, interspersed with rejuvenating sessions of meditation, yoga, and story sharing.
As one of the most popular events at Omega, Ecstatic Chant has helped open many hearts. Get lost in the music, the power of community, and strengthen your connection to a higher power.
