The Study Society’s Kirtan Collective with Jane Edington

The Study Society’s Kirtan Collective with Jane Edington

Kirtan is the yoga of sound. It is a call and response form of singing meditation in Sanskrit, the ancient language of mantra. The mantras are sacred sounds and word formulas that were discovered by sages of India over 3,000 years ago. The word Kirtan has Vedic roots and it means "telling, narrating, describing’. It is a part of Bhakti Yoga or the yoga of devotion. Devotion means different things to different people. That might be God, nature, a religion or any practise that is sacred to you. All are welcome.

Chanting creates internal peace, confidence and joy. It soothes restless minds, promotes clarity of focus and helps dissolve anger and anxiety. It is a loving act of kindness that connects us to the universal consciousness we all share. You don’t need to be a good singer to chant. This is not about giving a performance. The intention of Kirtan is to use the power of voice and mantra to meditate and come together in unity as one. It is a beautiful way to connect with the heart and generate a sense of wellbeing for oneself and others.

Jane Edington works as an Integrative Arts Psychotherapist and Trainer. In addition to a range of expressive and creative arts media, she has studied the use of voice and sound as expression, communication and healing with David Goldsworthy and Sarah Warwick.

She discovered her passion for Kirtan chanting with Nikki Slade as another medium for greater consciousness, identification and connection to, and between, inner and outer sacred worlds. She is a long time student of the work of A H Almaas and the Ridhwan School. Jane has also trained with Didier Danthois, Sacred clown and Vivian Gladwell of Nose to Nose who have been her main teachers in this joyful and sometimes profound art.
