World-famous musician and Kundalini Yoga Teacher Sada Sat Kaur will be in Washington, DC for a live kirtan (participatory chanting concert) at Lighthouse Yoga Center.
Through chanting mantra, we can align our vibratory frequency with that of the universe. Once we are in alignment, miracles begin to manifest in our lives. We open ourselves to love, healing and prosperity. Sada Sat Kaur is a kirtan rock star. Her feisty beats and energetic vocals will entertain and delight!
Join us to manifest miracles in your life!
What is kirtan?
- Kirtan is a very simple & powerful way to meditate. It’s effortless & joyful; the music does the work for you as you flow with the melody & rhythm.
- The performers & the concert-goers create the experience together.
- The chants are often sung in Sanskrit or Gurmukhi. The ancient chants contain powerful renewing & transformative energy that helps us reconnect with the Divinity that resides within all of us.
- Singing is the heart of kirtan, and no one cares what you sound like. At a kirtan concert all voices merge together to become One Voice.
- “Kirtan is a means of finding our way back to the core of our Being, to our heart, and to our connection with each other.”
Sada Sat Kaur
In yogic circles, Sada Sat Kaur’s name represents the alchemy of everyday custom turned into high art. For over 30 years she has toured the world, chanting mantras and singing kirtan in ashrams, concert halls, schools, public parks. In India, audiences have been known to flock to her as if she were the Beatles. “We play to crowds of 200,000 people,” she says. “They want to touch you and get your autograph. You go to these parks when it’s a Sikh holiday, and they hear that these American Sikhs are going to sing, and you can’t even see the end of the sea of people.” In 2000 she was hanging around the watermelon tent at a Summer Solstice retreat in the mountains of New Mexico when she fell into an exchange with musician and producer Jeremy Toback. “We just got to talking and Jeremy and I were like, `Let’s do an album.” The result of that chance encounter is Angels’ Waltz, a debut disc from a then 56-year-old homeopath and yoga instructor who also just happens to be a master of a musical and spiritual form. Angels’ Waltz was followed by two other successful CD’s: Shashara and Mantra Masala.
Today, Sada Sat Kaur can be found at her beautiful yoga ashram home, the Yoga Borgo, outside of Florence, Italy.
