January C-ville Satsang: An Afternoon of Blissful Chanting

Sunday, January 29th

Common Ground is very happy to be hosting C’ville Satsang, a monthly gathering organized by Lynsie McKeown.

About C’ville Satsang
C’ville Satsang
is a local group of like-minded individuals seeking a greater sense of community and connection through the love of all things yoga. Once a month we gather together to play, practice, discuss, meditate or chant.  This group is intended as a collaboration between teachers, students and the yoga curious as a way to keep expanding our knowledge and loving support off our mats.

About January’s Satsang:
You are invited to join us for an afternoon of blissful chanting with Sitara Maldonado

For over two decades, Sitara has been helping people live joyful and fulfilling lives. Integrating multiple healing modalities, Sitara developed Sanación Sitara© a unique healing approach connecting us back to our natural, balanced state of peace and well-being.

Sitara has always been a music lover. She has been singing since she was a child. She was first exposed to chanting in 1990 when she first visited Kripalu Center and fell in love with this beautiful heart-opening spiritual practice. She has since been creating community of like-hearted people with this high energy call and response tradition.

Sitara is the first Puerto Rican to release a kirtan CD (devotional chants from India). Nilanjana includes eight heart-opening musical pieces with mantras and healing sounds made by Sitara along with many Indian-inspired musical guests including special appearances by Benjy Wertheimer and Sean Johnson! Nilanjana has different styles of music and different rhythms that some have described as a masterpiece. This is world music designed to awaken and enliven the soul! For more information, or to listen to samples, visit her website.

There will be hard copies of the CD available for $15.

Come raise your vibration! Experience the powerful effect of this ancient healing practice that opens the heart, frees the voice, and awakens the soul! You don’t have to be a singer to receive the benefits. This is an excellent way to move energy for our well-being and our aspirations for 2017!


This event is offered to the community at no charge; donations to Common Ground are welcome to support use of their space.
