Event Description

This six week LEVEL 2 class is perfect for those with a home chant practice who long to SHARE Kirtan with others!

Within a safe space, this fun program guides and supports EXPERIENCED Kirtan Leaders as they deepen their chant practice and step into SHARING sacred chant with others in their community. 

Weekly classes (90 minutes long) create a perfect structure for chant leaders to deepen harmonium skills, expand their repertoire and develop the ability to play/sing with strong musicians while leading others in a potent chant experience. Our final class will feature support from a professional Kirtan drummer. 

You will learn to:
* Play a variety of voicings with harmonium chords while chanting and singing simple invocations
* Expand their repetoire with 10 chants and invocations (from your favorite Kirtan artists!) that you can share with others
* Deepen your conceputal understanding around music and Kirtan 
* Hold the 3 key conversations for sharing Kirtan publicly with confidence
* Cultivate an energetic understanding of mantras and deities
* Have lots of fun learning to share an amazing spiritual practice!

Leading Kirtan is an act of service that can be quite complex, or as simple as leading a group in a Om a cappella, or with harmonium. This class will help you develop the confidence and skill to gift your community with the blessing of sacred chant.

Mike Cohen has trained and apprenticed hundreds of Kirtan Leaders, from total beginners to students he helped create and release original chant Kirtan albums. Mike guides his students to launch home chant practices, learn to share Kirtan with others, build thriving chant communities, lead with power and grace, write compelling original music, tour, play at festivals, create albums and, along the way, transform who they are being in the world. Mike’s three full-length Kirtan albums blend Eastern mantra and Western grooves in an intoxicating manner that is ‘inspiring, addictive and highly-chantable.” (Yoga Chicago Magazine). He travels nationally sharing Kirtan at festivals and other venues, and leading his unique and effective Kirtan Leader trainings.

Mike has guided a number of his students to complete Kirtan recording projects. In 2015, longtime students Tim Jordan (https://soundcloud.com/tim-jordan-kirtan) and Sevika Radecki (https://soundcloud.com/sevikakirtan/sets/love) released full length CD's of original chants. In 2016, Katie Wise (https://soundcloud.com/bhaktiexplosion/sets/bhakti-explosion-sampler) and Claire Whittleston (https://soundcloud.com/claire-whittleston) released album projects with Grammy Award nominated producer Ben Leinbach. 

"I wanted to thank you again for the best chanting program evah! I loved every minute of it-- the teachers were tops, the participants, the structure, the content... I had a chanting hangover (in the best possible way). My confidence improved dramatically as a result of the program, and I'll look forward to the next Level 2 event."
-- Amy Lieberman, Yoga Teacher, Kirtan Leader, Health Coach

"Such a transformative program - excellent execution - professional and well organized. I was so impressed with all of the effort you put into the class and into each of us." 
- Laina Taylor, healer, Kirtan Leader

"There are so many dimensions to leading this practice, yet Mike skillfully guided each participant through the process so that it never seemed overwhelming.”
-- Tim Jordan, RN BSN, yoga teacher, Kirtan leader

Class size will be limited to 12 participants to create a high-touch learning environment. This program runs 6 weeks with a total of 9 hours of instruction in how to lead Kirtan.
