Cosmic Kirtan Connection
January 27, 2019 at 7:30pm Join Mira Devi & Friends, with special guest Dr. John Keller, for an evening of live music, stories, conversation, and connection. A full spectrum, live music experience, from soothing to grooving, will combine with Sanskrit mantras and cosmic visuals for a multi-sensory tapestry of healing.
Along the way, Mira and John will explore the connection between science and spirituality. Mira will share stories about the chants from her studies in yoga and meditation, while John will drop some amazing facts about astronomy and the universe. Feel free to chant along, get up and dance, or sit back to enjoy the sounds and sights. Mira Devi’s band will offer up an east/west fusion of Hindu and Buddhist inspired mantras, sonic soundscapes, singing bowls, guitar, harmonium, dilruba, hammered dulcimer, sitar, and tablas...all while soaring through the universe! Come along with us as we journey to the depths of the heart and the furthest reaches of the cosmos. All are warmly welcome. No experience necessary.
No backpacks or large purses will be allowed into the theater. We reserve the right to search all bags.
Tickets: $20 (Members save 25%)
Note: Online deals such as Groupon, Living Social, Fiske Vouchers, and any other discount coupons WILL NOT be accepted.
