I am also a very experienced kirtan leader. I was mentored by Chaula Hopefisher during my residency at Kripalu Center in this sadhana, and brought it back to Victoria with me when I returned in 1998. Below is a clip of a 2010 kirtan at the Church of Truth with former partner, Marina Halleran, who sadly passed away in 2012. I am still available to lead Kirtan in sacred sanctuaries.
Classes are theoretical yet highly experiential, fun yet deep, exploratory yet disciplined. The facilities I teach at feature state-of-the-art equipment, beautiful training rooms, and are clean and comfortable. Hope to see you soon!
