Sample Kirtan at the Infinity Foundation
The Bhakti Caravan
The Bhakti Caravan will perform a community kirtan, a unique form of meditation that involves music, breath, mantras and music, from 7:30 to 9:30 p.m., February 10, at the Infinity Foundation, in Highland Park. Meditation has been proven to assist in achieving serenity, improving the ability to control stress and a link to a higher level of functioning, including expanding the spirit. Kirtan jumpstarts this process, and attendees are encouraged to bring small percussion instruments and participate.
Ellen (Radha) Katz, an integrative psychotherapist at Inner Balance, member of the Infinity Foundation faculty and leader of The Bhakti Caravan, has been a student of yoga, meditation and mindfulness for more than 30 years. She is dedicated to providing fundraising for Infinity and simultaneously bringing expansiveness and enrichment to our community. The Bhakti Caravan plays at yoga studios and other conscious centers around the greater Chicago area and the Midwest.
Kirtan is an ancient spiritual practice that involves the call-and-response chanting of simple mantras between the participants and the leader. Katz integrates Indian, Bulgarian, folk and other influences in a nonreligious devotional experience.
