We sit in a circle of sound
closing our eyes, returning
to some sweet source
where the heart sings
And soars…

A beautiful full moon evening yesterday at The Shala as we gathered to belt out the soulful sounds of devotional Sanskrit. Although most were new to the practice of Kirtan, we all naturally took off in song, a testament on the sheer harmonizing power of this yoga practice.

More to come: Amy and I have one more Kirtan together before I leave Egypt at NUN Center in Zamalek on Friday, November 28, 7:30pm.
