Kirtan for a Peaceful Mind

Hummingbird Healing Center, 57 Main St., 2nd Floor, Westport, CT

Feeling overwhelmed and in need of a break from the hustle and bustle of daily life?

Kirtan - the joyful and easy practice of chanting mantras with music can help calm the mind, open the heart, and regulate the nervous system - freeing us from incessant thinking, worries, depression, and fears while allowing us to tap into our true essence which is loving and peaceful.

Join Hummingbird founder and sound healer Lisa Pak and Miriam Zernis of Sita’s Light Kirtan for a wonderful mid-week break that will uplift your heart and reset your mind and soul for the better.

Come as you are!

Kirtan is something that absolutely everyone can take part in. There are no beginners, and no experts. Just the fun of connecting in community to enjoy singing and relaxing together in a high vibration environment.

George Harrison famously said:

“ The response that comes from chanting is pure bliss, spiritual happiness, which is a higher taste than any happiness found in the material world. The more you do it, you don’t want to stop because it feels so nice and peaceful”

So why not give it a try?

Sign up today and discover the peace and joy that Kirtan can bring to your life.
