Do you ever wish you could learn to chant? Do you have an existing mantra or kirtan practice and want to go deeper? Have you been wanting to connect with other people who love yoga, mantra and kirtan?
When people ask me, “How do I start my own kirtan practice?, my answer is: “Just start!” I know, without a doubt, that every single one of us has absolutely everything we need to start our own personal devotional practice.
Begin slowly, at your own pace, and make a small and very easy commitment to chant three to five minutes a day, watering that tender shoot of devotion in the deepest recesses of your soul. Before you can even say 108 RAMs, the seed of bhakti within your heart will blossom into a beautiful tree of spiritual connection and love, and become a shelter of peace and compassion for others.Sign me up!

WHAT PEOPLE ARE SAYING
Jai Uttal's Online Kirtan Training is life changing! I took the very 1st one back in 2003 and this training fully opened up the path of kirtan and Bhakti for me. I give the highest recommendation to anyone wanting to dive deeper into kirtan and Bhakti to take this training!!!
Online Kirtan Camp with Jai was a wonderful experience. It helped me to deepen my Kirtan practice and inspired me to use my own voice to share these beautiful prayers with the world. It is something I cherish and will never forget. Deep bows Jai for all you have done to pave the way for so many!
Engaging and emotional storytelling, wonderful musical support, humble devotion and oftentimes rocking kirtan bliss are a few of the highlights for me. I felt supported, inspired and motivated to bring chanting and devotion more deeply into my life!
