Dearest Leipzig Family ♥
And we're back! This will be our second to last kirtan in Leipzig this winter until next summer so we are most happy to welcome all of you for for an evening of earth medicine and medicine music to heal the soul and come full power into this new cycle. Coming together and singing is one of the best ways we can release the un ending activities of the mind and sink fully into our hearts to experience the true beauty of what it feels to be one with our community and the nature around us. When our voices join with the repetition of ancient sanskrit mantra set to beautiful melodic music it penetrates into the deeper layers of our subconscious cleaning, healing and relaxing us into our deepest peace. When we do this together it's even more powerful and with the help of pure Cacao from the amazon we couldn't be more blessed :)

ॐ What is Kirtan ॐ
Kirtan is an ancient spiritual practice originally from the yogic and Hindu traditions of India and considered a practice of Bhakti Yoga or the Yoga of devotion. In a kirtan sanskrit mantras are set to beautiful melodic music created and lead by the Kirtan band and sung together as a group with the collective intention to invite healing and positive energy into the body mind and soul as a way to experience God or a higher state of consciousness. Through the music the group becomes unified in purpose and harmony to release, let go and experience a state of oneness and deep togetherness through the chanting and devotion. These ancient mantras when chanted with conviction and faith vibrate beyond the physical into the energetic body and automatically open the heart for healing and loving kindness energy to flow freely in the body, mind and soul of the individual and simultaneously the group. It's an incredibly healing experience.
ॐ What is Cacao ॐ
A special Cacao medicine will be prepared before the Kirtan and given to all during the opening chanting and meditation. Cacao is a sacred medicine that has been used by tribes in central and South America for thousands of years as a way of opening the heart and connecting families and tribes together and to the earth.
ॐ What is Anahata Ma ॐ
Anahata Ma is a grassroots charity organization and community of healers and teachers sharing their gifts by donation around the world to fund the construction of clean water systems and orphanage support in Southern India.
ॐ What has Anahata Ma done ॐ
In the past 2 years we've hosted donation based yoga, meditation and music therapy classes, kirtans, along with other peaceful gatherings in five countries across two continents to raise the funding to build clean water systems, support orphan children and develop sustainability in the tribal villages of Kerala, South India.
Since we started in 2016 we've raised over 20,000 Euro and have built over 20 clean water systems which now supply nearly 400 families with clean water for the next two generations of family.
At the Canan Children's Home, an orphanage of 12 boys in Kerela South India, we supplied food, healthcare repairs to home, taught english, yoga and music classes the last two years.
