Modern Devotion

Modern Devotion - IDEA TWO

Modern devotion is an evening where we get together and sing a curated mix of modern and traditional songs, chosen to raise consciousness and enhance heart-based awareness. It can also be described as a contemporary take on Kirtan Music.

And don’t worry if you feel you can’t sing, that’s not the point. Here, all voices are welcome, and we can experiment with being spontaneous and creative, while giving up fear, shame and self-consciousness. It’s all about connecting with our inner 6-year-old and tapping into the freedom and confidence that brings, so that we can journey to meaningful places within ourselves. In a safe space non-singers can learn to sing in-key very quickly.

Bring your sense of adventure as we move past excellence and explore a more authentic, creative and free relationship with our voices and, if you want to bring them, your instruments. And if you’re feeling brave, you’re more than encouraged to sing a solo verse for the group.

Music has the potential to shift emotions and take us to extraordinary places. Our aim is to reach those transcendent places through song, without resorting to (relying on) methods tied to dogma and belief systems.

So come and join us for Modern Devotion and let’s see how deeply we can connect to ourselves and each other, while singing about love, loss and the fun bits in-between.

We’ll be singing some or all of these:

Push the Sky Away – Nick Cave
Hallelujah – Leonard Cohen
Cranes in the Sky – Solange
Imagine – John Lennon
Weird Fishes/Arpeggi – Radiohead
One Love – Bob Marley
Jaya Jagadambe – Jai Uttal
Lovesong – The Cure / Adele

If you want to take your singing to the next level, prepare to sing a verse by yourself from one of the songs above. Let me know beforehand which one it is.

We’ll also be doing non-dual meditations and working our way into balanced, heart-based awareness… while singing.
