About the Event
Join us for community Kirtan - a unique and enlivening way to meditate!
Kirtan is a practice of call and response chanting of sacred sounds and mantras. The chants are simple and easy to follow.
The call and response nature of Kirtan creates a gentle rhythm that keeps the mind engaged and centered, making it an accessible form of meditation for all levels of meditation experience.
Experience a deeper connection to your wholeness and the softness for the heart-mind field, as thoughts gradually subside and the soothing sounds and mantras support you.
Facilitate a re-calibration of the nervous system through the restorative benefits of meditation through chanting and music. This practice eases you into the rest, digest, rebuild, restore functions of the body as your mind starts to release stress and your nervous system starts to unwind.
Collective chanting can be a supportive way to find co-regulation within a safe space, amongst community.
Following Kirtan there will be the opportunity to connect and chat over tea and nibbles.

A little about your guide, Ruth Pirie…
Ruth holds space for others to step into a deeper self-inquiry of their body and soul’s wisdom, whilst guiding them through nourishing conscious movement, breath work and meditation practices. She came to Yoga as she journeyed through Post-natal Depression and grief in her first years of motherhood. Yoga, mindfulness, meditation and breathwork soon became her baseline and anchor. Her teaching is non-judgmental, restorative and inviting.
Her journey has led her to sound and vibrational healing, exploring her innate wisdom and gifts which she shares joyfully with others to pave way for healing, openness and receptivity. Ruth channels sound consciously to help others find stillness and deep-rooted relaxation; guiding them to access their own soul's expression and return to wholeness.
