By repeating simple mantras, Kirtan (devotional singing) is an effortless and joyful way to experience some freedom from the endless chatter of the mind, revealing a graceful state of being and inner peace.
The moment we begin to sing there is a feeling of letting go, a deepening of the breath and a sense of coming home. We can let go of the doership and simply be in the present. While focussing on these repetitive sounds our thoughts begin to recede. When the mantras end, we can bathe in the silence that remains. Feelings of fear, anger and separation are gently transformed into feelings of love, compassion and oneness.
Kirtan is for everyone! No prior experience of chanting is necessary to gain the many benefits it has to offer, simply an openness to what may occur. Whether you wish to quiet your mind, awaken your heart, de-stress or simply enjoy singing with others, Kirtan is for you!
Tim has been sharing this practice for over 10 years and loves to introduce it to complete beginners as they can often be amazed by the experience. Tim regularly sings at retreats, festivals and gatherings and holds monthly sessions in Bristol and Bath. In the last few years he has sung in Glastonbury, London, Sheffield, Stoke, Cardiff and many other places. In 2012 Tim released his first Kirtan CD ‘Devotional Heart’ and followed it up in 2016 with ‘Give It All Away For Love’.
"Tim is a dedicated pilgrim of prayerful chant and song. His devotional heart sound and meditative mantras, penetrate your mind, inspire participation, and awaken your heart." Chloe Goodchild, singer and author of ‘The Naked Voice’.
