New Moon Mystical Mantras

New Moon Mystical Mantras, Bethel, CT


The dark, stillness of winter always lends itself to introspection. Along with the Pisces new moon creating great sensitivity and perceptiveness, this is a powerful time to engage in a search for more meaning in life. Join us for an evening of kirtan to honor Shiva’s energy of transformation in our lives, the Gayatri mantra to welcome the light slowly returning to the earth and other mystical mantras to raise our vibrations. All are welcome to come dive deep into peace.
