Thursday Night Kirtan

Arrive early (6:30) if you'd like to practice or get some instructional time in. 

There is no formal beginning or end, you may come and go freely. 

This is a relaxed offering, appropriate for all levels, all ages. 

You do not need to be a singer or a skilled musician; the quality of the kirtan is indicated by the qualities of your heart, not musical proficiency.

60-90mins  -  donation based

Temple of the Rebel Goddess

400 Linden Ave, Dayton OH

Suite 245


Kirtan is derived from a Sanskrit root meaning "to call, recite, praise, or glorify." Put simply, kirtan is the use of call and response singing (using sacred mantras and the names of the Divine) to cultivate love and devotion. It is a very active and dynamic form of meditation/worship using improvisational music to allow you to get out of your head and into your heart. 

We play harmonium (a small hand pumped organ), mridanga (an Indian clay drum), and kartals (hand cymbals). We encourage you to play along with your own instruments (drums, rattles, guitar... whatever you'd like) or borrow some of ours! 

Temple of the Rebel Goddess

Thursday Night Kirtan is taking place at Temple of the Rebel Goddess, which is located at 400 Linden Ave in Dayton. Temple of the Rebel Goddess - Imagine a self-serve sacred coffee shop, where everything is donation based, and where you can cultivate your relationship to the Divine. Do your work, your art, or offer devotion to the deities.
