Special Kirtan for Everyone at Temple Apalala

  • Temple Apalala 4532 Northeast 109th Avenue Portland, OR, 97220 United States (map)

There's a lot to sing here. There's a lot to sing together. 

This is about being together. Bringing together. This is about bhakti (devotion), shivshakti (masculine and feminine, consciousness and energy), healing and community. 

As always, we'll make Dal and Rice. You bring what you love or can if you'd like. We'll have label materials here. 

There's no charge. Donations are welcome. 

Kids are welcome with your elegant connection and supervision. 

We will likely be outside in the yard with shade. Inside is available if it rains. 

The vision that came through so strong: 

5 Kirtan Leaders in collaboration. 

5 Different Kirtans in each of our spaces. 

5 is the number of change. 

Everyone who comes having an opportunity to lead a chant, totally optional. Bring your shakers and instruments. All you need is your breath, your voice, your curiosity. 

June 17th is the first of the 5. Father's Day in the U.S. and now that I look at it, 6/17 is 14 which is 5... if you're into that kind of thing. 

Divine Masculine. I don't have a great dad backstory but I wouldn't be doing what I do without the one I had and I know great Dads, great men. And I honor the divine masculine in all of us and in the universe. 

So let's get together and sing true love-beyond-love. 

Let's open not just our hearts but our whole core, our entire vibrant selves in connection with all that is and see what we find inside ourselves and in connection with each other. 

What can singing change? 

Come sing. 

Then ask. 

Or just Feel. 

And Sing some more. 

We love you and we're all one. Come sing it. Come feel it. Come create it with us.
