Kirtan Events and Mantra Yoga in Montana

Kirtan events feature devotional singing in a group format. Although singing is part of every spiritual tradition, this particular form originated in India. Kirtan is now gaining popularity in the Western world. The word “kirtan” (pronounced KEER-tun or KEER-tahn) comes from Sanskrit. Kirtan specifically refers to the practice of singing the names of God, usually in the form of mantras. 

The events listed here are led by Kathleen Karlsen. Some events involve other kirtan leaders and musicians. Locations for events are indicated in the descriptions. Kathleen Karlsen is based in Bozeman, Montana. Learn more about kirtan in Everything About Kirtan. Learn more about mantras in Mantra Yoga: Sacred Formulas.
