Begun in India centuries ago, Kirtan is simply singing and meditation. With harmonium accompaniment we will chant together in English several spiritualized songs brought to this country nearly 100 years ago by Paramahansa Yogananda.

After a period of chanting with deeper and deeper attention and devotion, we will then sit in meditation, absorbing and internalizing the affirmation inherent in the chant.

Kirtan is a very simple and powerful way to meditate….effortless and joyful. The music does the work for you and no one cares what you sound like. All voices merge to become one voice, creating a joyful journey through melody and rhythm toward oneness with the divine.

Leeds Davis has been a resident of Truckee for nearly 25 years and has enjoyed the beauty and spirituality of the area as well as the bountiful activities that serve as a springboard for deepening meditative practices. He is a Kriyaban with Self Realization Fellowship, which was founded by Paramahansa Yogananda nearly a century ago. Together with Yogoda Santsanga Society in India, it is the spiritual home of the teachings of Yogananda with spiritual centers in all countries of the world. He attends both the Grass Valley Meditation Group, where he conducts Sunday services, and the Reno Meditation Group.

It is traditionally offered with meditations that enrich compassion, and joy in the happiness of others, and also deepen our own sense of peace. These practices lead to the development of concentration, connection, fearlessness, and genuine happiness.

Sharon Salzberg will introduce these teachings and support us in our own experience and cultivation of these qualities through direct instruction and guided meditation using classical techniques in a modern idiom.

There will also be opportunities for questions. This daylong is suitable for both new and experienced meditators.
