Yoga at the Village is proud to host Tim Jordan and his band. 

Tim joins our group of prestigious past Kirtan performers including Dave Stringer, WAH!,
Temple  Bhajan and Mike Cohen.
We're thrilled to have the opportunity to host him on a monthly basis!

The practice of KIRTAN, call and response chanting,  is a participatory music experience that originated in India about 500 years ago.  It is a devotional practice known as Bhakti Yoga. Like other forms of yoga, Bhakti Yoga, is about connection. Connection to divinity,
connection to our true selves, connection to others. 

Kirtan uses the repetition of Sanskrit mantras, mystical vibrations encased in a sound structure, to help us to tap into sacred energies that serve to quiet our mind and open our heart.

Tim began his journey with Kirtan during Yoga Teacher Training in South India in 2009.  There was something about chanting the names of the Divine on a daily basis that stirred something deep inside him. Having grown up in a strongly religious environment in the South, Tim was very familiar with devotional practices.  However, nothing had ever touched him the way that Kirtan did. He witnessed its power to open the heart and to transcend both culture and religion.  In India he sat with Muslims, Jews, Hindus, Sikhs, Buddhists, Christians, and people with no religious affiliation, all singing these sacred Sanskrit mantras with such joy and devotion.

For the past 2 years Tim has been a student of Mike Cohenís Kirtan Leader Traning program.  Under Mikeís guidance and support, he has been leading Kirtan both locally and back in his home state of Mississippi. 

Leading Kirtan in Mississippi was actually where, he was finally able to appreciate the integration of his lifelong spiritual practice.  Tim finally understood that he had never left his devotion. It had simply changed forms. 

Recently Tim has begun to see the value in his southern heritage and has started to infuse some of its history into the music he plays.  He is also very blessed to be sharing these sacred mantras and energies with a group of wonderfully talented musicians.

Tim's wish in leading Kirtan is that everyone who attends will chant their heart open, take that energy into the world, and be of service to others.
