The practice of kirtan is an ancient yogic practice with a new evidence base supporting many psychological benefits. It is an active meditation which makes it much more accessible than formal sitting meditation, which can in some cases be re-triggering. Through singing and repeating words, phrases, or syllables, your mind focuses on the sound and stops your normal train of thought, thus clearing your mind. The benefits are endless, including: 

  • reduces depression

  • improves memory

  • better sleep

  • relieves chronic pain
