In childhood I might sing songs from musicals  out within the woods and picture that the orchestra was about to burst out from the bushes!

I realised in my late twenties that what I used to be really in search of was unity and concord which was once I found kirtan/chanting from the guts. At the moment I had an enormous coronary heart opening within the kirtan observe and an awakening which modified my life endlessly! I’ve by no means appeared again.

How did your Kirtan journey start and what impressed it

My journey started in 1987 once I was in a darkish night time of the soul interval of my life the place nothing made sense and I used to be lured into the trail of dependancy between the ages of 14-27yrs. Once I was 27 I used to be launched by a colleague/buddy to the trail of kirtan. She took me to my first satsang ( firm of the reality).After attending a couple of instances I purchased a cassette tape (exhibits my age!) and started chanting together with it each day. On the time I used to be an actor in between jobs. Someday the mantra of the mantra lifted my spirits so excessive and entered my soul so deeply that I had a non secular awakening which took me to the depths and the heights of consciousness. The darkish highway of dependancy left me and I skilled visions and revelations that reworked my complete outlook on life endlessly. Progressively over time I left the world of performing and as a substitute turned a facilitator of pure voice work and  a frontrunner of kirtan.I n my e-book The Therapeutic Energy of Chanting I candidly share my journey into  chanting and share downloadable chants in order that you can also begin your individual kirtan journey.
