Kirtan, call-and-response chanting in Sanskrit, the ancient language of Yoga, gives us the opportunity both to detach from the thoughts and worries we carry around and to allow the joy of the heart to dance out loud.

All ages || $20 || Reservations via email welcome. (

A musician and Bhakti poet, Tom Lena (Tamal Krishna das) creates and offers devotional songs that nourish us integrally with moods ranging from prayerful to celebratory. Having accompanied many names in the Yoga music genre, including American chant masters such as Shubalananda, Gaura Vani, Girish, Temple Bhajan Band, and Jaya Lakshmi, Tom's ground-breaking Cd, "OM @ Club Passim" expresses his grass-roots journey and belief that there are no hard and fast rules about chanting. 

Shakti Rowan has been dancing and singing around the fires of devotion most of her life. Raised in an earth based spiritual tradition, Shakti was steeped in the joys of living in a community that celebrated and worshipped through playing live music, dancing together and singing the names of the divine in devotion. In recent years Shakti has studied with Sufi’s and learned the art of sacred circle dancing and a meditative practice called Zikir. Shakti has chanted and led sacred songs around ceremonial fires around the country. Shakti now practices singing Mantras and sharing Kirtan in the Yoga community with her Beloved partner Tom Lena.
