Kathleen Karlsen and the Vocal Medicine Band

“Thank you so much for the beautiful kirtan. It is wonderful to see people from all walks of life, all ages and spiritual backgrounds
coming together in devotion. Just awesome!” – NM, Bozeman, MT

Experience music as a spiritual practice through devotional chanting and singing with Kathleen Karlsen. Kathleen is based in Bozeman, Montana and holds events in Montana, Idaho and surrounding areas. Events are non-denominational and open to all. Come sing, dance, meditate or relax.

Devotional singing is present in every culture and tradition. Kirtan is an Eastern word for a sing-along of sacred music and mantras, sometimes in a call and response format. Mantras and singing help to focus the mind and lighten the heart. You do not have to be musical. If you can talk, you can chant!

Create a Happy, Healthy Brain through Singing

Singing dissipates feelings of loneliness, increases dopamine and oxytocin and benefits the brain, body and spirit in multiple ways. Singing together has been shown to be effective for assisting with the alleviation of social anxiety and depression.

Studies show that chanting and group singing change the chemistry of the brain. Chanting is a calorie-free, drug-free approach to supporting your overall wellness. Learn to use the science of mantras to create a happy heart, a clear mind and a rejuvenated body.
