Joyful Heart Kirtan

Kirtan Events in and around the Midlands

Fun.    Joy.    Bliss.

Who we are

Joyful Heart Kirtan are Alison Foster & Julie Hemmings, two passionate Yoginis, Yoga teachers and Kirtan devotees who have a shared love of chanting the ancient mantras of yoga and other spiritual traditions.

We offer a fun, lively and blissful experience where you can connect to your deeper self and open up to the higher vibrations of the divine universe, through the powerful medium of chanting.

What we do

Our Kirtan events are a combination of music, spiritual connection and community. The chants are very simple, done in a call-and-response style, so you don’t have to learn any complicated words. We also provide booklets with all the words in. We use a harmonium, guitar, drum, bell and percussion There are always some extra shakers and other instruments for participants to join in, which we actively encourage!

Kirtan is a very relaxed, free flowing gathering. There are no expectations and you are free to experience it in your own way.

After the Kirtan, we offer refreshments to ground you, and some time for reflection, conversation, connection.

Kirtan is our offering of service, or seva for the spiritual community. You are welcome to offer your donations at our events, and any profits will be given to charities that we support.

We have regular events in the area, or you can book us for your Kirtan event, or to add value to your Yoga day or retreat. Our booking information can be found HERE.

 “Seva” means “together with” and describes the actions that seek collective uplifting through the understanding of the needs of others and are based on togetherness and integration. It is an expression of compassion for others and a genuine desire to uplift those around you.

“Feed everyone, serve everybody”

“Love. Serve. Remember.”
