About Chanting (Kirtan)

Chanting (Kirtan) is a deeply inspiring practice that opens the heart and reveals the experience of our own true nature. It calms the mind and helps us to release unwanted tensions allowing us to experience the freedom within.

We chant in Sanskrit, a language revealed by sages in ancient times as the language of the heart. There is a deep wisdom within the vibration of each chant (Kirtan) and each individual has their own unique experience of grace through the power of chanting.

Chanting (Kirtan) replenishes the soul and unites us with one another and is the perfect way to experience the joy of singing in a group where the focus is on participation rather than performance. Nikki leads these sessions with voice, harmonium and drum. You can join her in singing a range of easy-to-learn devotional and uplifting chants or just bask in the sound of the chants.


Important Note

Nikki's work with sound and resonance can be powerful. Although the effects are often therapeutic and profound, and the space is held and supportive, it is not psychotherapy. Where issues arise, individuals may choose to seek additional support.
