Chanting is a great way to release stress and tension. Many people find it challenging to sit and meditate but the combination of sound, breath and rhythm in Kirtan helps to bring about a feeling of joy and inner peace. The vibrations of each chant move through the body and help to stimulate the hormones that calm the mind and relax the body. The mantras in Kirtan are chanted in a call-and-response fashion, from the leader to the group, and accompanied by musical instruments, such as harmonium, drums and guitar. There is no need to be shy as everyone’s voices blend together alongside the music. In fact regular Kirtan practice is said to improved confidence and released inhibitions.
