Kirtan and Satsang Offerings
Universal Kirtan is led by Amir O’Loughlin, a pioneer of inter-spiritual music in Vancouver, and features a roster of fine Vancouver world music instrumentalists and vocalists.
Named for the Sanskrit “kirtana,” meaning “praise, eulogy,” BE’s Kirtan offers a chance for the community to come together in uplifting song and storytelling. Pulling from a variety of cultural practices, including healing circles, chanting and therapeutic music, Kirtan is a time of healing and ending our week with gratitude to the space, going inwards and resting in our inner space. Please join us Sunday evenings as we come together in community to bring a close to our week with BE KIRTAN & SATSANG Sundays, 6:30pm.
* Experience the sacred sentiment of gratitude, joy and expansion with live Musicians and Artists enriching us with sacred sounds
* An offering of Chai
* Annadana – a light Vegetarian snack, an offering of gratitude and sharing of the gift nourishment from healing foods, sometimes raw, sometimes cooked, saatvik, mind-calming in essence.
* Come and just sit, imbibe the gift of an open heart, being alive, just BE in “presence of Existence”
* Suggested Contribution: Volunteer and/or Pay as you can from the treasure of generosity, “Dana” to support the space that is BE. Help us care for its sustenance, help us keep it clean and fresh, pulsing with life energy that is healing and expansive, a sacred space to enrich all that grace it!
Activities offered will vary by week, but may include:
- Gong Baths
- Inspirational Films
- Sharing in Food
Our Sunday evening slot is always booked for Kirtan, but there may not be a Kirtan offered every week. Please see our Special Events Calendar to find out what is on this week.
