KIRTAN, Yoga Music:
Unlike more traditional mindfulness or meditation practices where the objective is to clear your thoughts and quite your mind, Kirtan is an active form of meditation that involves chanting or mantras that many find easier to do because it doesn’t require intense focus. If you’ve taken a yoga class and said the word “OM” ... you have experience Kirtan in its simplest form. Kirtan is essentially the rhythmic repetition of words, phrases, or syllables. Because it occupies your mind to chant or sing the sounds, it stops your normal train of thought and clears your mind. Scott encourages the crowd to participate, even if it is just finger-tapping to engage more of your senses. This music enhances the rhythmic pattern and creates a deeper meditative experience.
In a group setting, this can also be called call-and-response. Scott mixes the traditional mantras of ancient Indian language of Sanskrit with Western yoga music. Kirtan has been around for thousands of years, modern research has found that it doing 12 minutes a day for 12 weeks altered plasma blood levels involved in cellular aging which were associated with improvements of cognitive function, sleep, mood and quality of life. Studies found that Kirtan shows significant increased cerebral blood flow in several areas. Studies have shown their performance on neuropsychological testing showed improved visuospatial memory, increased connectivity, improved verbal memory, reduced symptoms of depression and improved chronic pain.
From and emotional perspective, Kirtan is beneficial because you are engaged in an activity that distracts you from thinking. This is particularly beneficial if you are caught in a spiral of negative thinking and would like to use meditation to alleviate the ruminative process. When you stop flooding your brain with fear ad worry about the future or resentments from the past, this has profoundly positive effect of resetting your emotional state to calm and peaceful. People who practice Kirtan had a higher leaving of spiritual benefit, with an enhanced feeling or bliss and are more emotionally open and connected to others.
