Day 26 -Moksha Yoga Teacher Training

In the Moskha Yoga community they refer to their community as a Sangha.

Wiki of Sangha: Sangha (Pali: सन्घ saṅgha; Sanskrit: संघ saṃgha; Wylie: ‘dus sde) is a word in Pali or Sanskrit that can be translated roughly as “association” or “assembly,” “company” or “community” with common goal, vision or purpose.

It seems many students in this Teacher Training Sangha are getting pretty tired including myself. Everyday is filled with so many new experiences and valuable information past on (to resume in a nutshell). No dull moments, no day is the same, so much learning to process, to reflect upon, to inspire and so many emotions brought to the forefront.

Today we were introduced to a Kirtan (sorry just too tired to resume it in my own words).

Wiki of Kirtan: Kirtan (Sanskrit: “to repeat”;[1] also Sankirtan[2]) is call-and-response chanting performed in India’s devotional traditions.[3] A person performing kirtan is known as a kirtankar. Kirtan practice involves chanting hymns or mantras to the accompaniment of instruments such as the harmonium, the two-headed mrdanga or pakawaj drum, and karatal hand cymbals. It is a major practice in Vaisnava devotionalism, Sikhism, the Sant traditions, and some forms of Buddhism, as well as other religious groups (see religion)

A picture from the back of the room during the 'moving' Kirtan today.

It was amazing! LOVE the kind of music a Kirtan creates together, how everyone is invited to be a part of this music, the sensation of energy flowing. It seemed to be a grand experience for many, many people.

K, me go sleepy now. I’ve had 2 – 4 hrs of sleep these past 2 nights and I’ve cut back my alpha naps during the day because I’m trying to maximize my socializing time with these beautiful people before we all keep moving forward in our life. It feels a tad surreal that it’s coming to an end.
