Community Vegetarian Potluck and Kirtan
Join us for our monthly Vegetarian Potluck and Kirtan. We gather together to share in food, song and fun as a community based on peace. Bring a dish to share if you can (many are often vegan) and then we head to the yurt to sing ancient Sanskrit mantras that fill you with vibrations that will lift your spirit, open your heart and help you rid yourself of stress and frustrations! Gita/ Krista Zember and her friends and family will lead each month.
Families are most welcome. No experience necessesary. Come Sing, Listen, Dance or just soak it all in. Chant sheets will be provided. Come for some or all of the event!
Community Chant Circle
I want to chant more with my friends. I love just getting together and chanting. Enjoying each other, the chant offerings we have and very little formality. So let’s do it more often.
It won’t just be me leading chants, but anyone who is interested in making their offering as the caller. Please do let me know ahead of time if YOU would like to lead a chant so I can plan accordingly.
Note: This is on TUESDAY
Can’t come on time, no problem, come as you are, when you can! We may have a bit of tea, but no potluck at this event.
