What is havan?

Havan is a way to give our heartfelt, energetic support to all beings everywhere, including ourselves, the community and the Earth by offering transformative mantras, flowers and intentions in a yogic ceremony which is thousands of years old. 

What is mantra?

Many of us are familiar with using mantrato connote a word, phrase or affirmation for us to focus on and repeat, which has a positive effect on our wellbeing and life, e.g. Love,’ ‘I am at peace in this moment,or I deserve to find true love.

Mantra has the same meaning and usage in kirtan, except that yogic mantras are in Sanskrit, an ancient Indian language. Better known examples are Om(the Sanskrit equivalent of Amenor Amin), Namaste(meaning greetings to your soul) and Shanti(peace).

Scientific studies attest that chanting mantras like Om for ten minutes can decrease stress, anxiety and depression, relax the body, and bring the heart rate to a regular rhythm and blood pressure to normal levels.

According to yogic texts, Sanskrit mantras are the subtle sound vibrations of the universe and our bodies. Mantra chanting, like planting seeds, can help awaken and make available this energy within us to help fulfil our potential.

What is kirtan?

Kirtan is a group call and response singing yoga practice that helps focus the mind, awaken our energy and open our heart.

It is for the uplifting of everyone, regardless of caste, creed, worldly status or religious inclination.

You dont need any prior experience to take part. This is your personal connection to the peace within you through your unique voice and heart, carried by the collective energy of the group and music.

Kirtan is a wellbeing practice which welcomes us to be who we are, and sing as we are, no matter what is going on in our lives, or however we are feeling.

Kirtan invites us to connect with our singing voice in a way thats safe, non-confrontational, and accessible to everyone – whether we feel shy about singing, have trauma around it, or singing is a complete unknown for us.
