Saraswati and Richard have been creating spiritual chant music together since 2007. They lead Kirtan (the singing of melodious mantra accompanied by live music) gatherings where participants can sing, dance and meditate. They believe that chanting can help us to achieve higher awareness and deeper exploration of the Self.

Their gatherings often cleanse the environment, generate great joy and exhilaration; leaving participants with an open heart and a tangible feeling of inner peace.

The practice of Kirtan can give rise to blissful states, and is one of the methods by which Bhakti or transcendental love is brought forth. This allows one to easily go beyond the rational mind and move into the realm of spirit.

Combining the power of mantra and music with the emotional aspect of our being gives rise to a great force. This force is infinite and can truly transform your life… and even quiet the busiest of minds. Saraswati and Richard also offer various classes, workshops and retreats that have a focus on inner development.

Kirtan Rocks!

I have been attending Saraswati and Richard's kirtan for many years now and I can highly recommend these gatherings from the bottom, top, front, back, left, right, outside and inside of my heart :)
The events are filled with openness and humility, and Saraswati and Richard provide a relaxed and supported environment to sing and praise the names of the divine together. I have experienced amazing calm and peace after some events, and other times I am absolutely filled with abundant joy!
Thank you and Namaste!

Saraswati and Richard lead first class kirtans, workshops and retreats. I feel uplifted and peaceful after their events. They have a gift for helping you peel away the layers of unhelpful stuff, which allows the stillness and joy to shine through.
