What is kirtan? Kirtan is call-and-response singing that feels awesome. Neurologically speaking, it's a method of using sound vibration to balance the body and mind.

We try to put our analytical minds to the side and sing from the heart. We try to channel whatever emotion we're feeling into the song. Then the magic happens: Walls constructed long ago come crumbling down. Wounds that we never knew were there begin to heal. Long-submerged emotions come to the surface. As we sing, we immerse ourselves in an endless river of prayer that has been flowing since the birth of the first human beings.” Read more here: https://www.yogajournal.com/yoga-101/sea-of-love
