Kirtan Heartsong

19:00pm - 21:00pm Northgate Street, Colchester CO1
A warm welcome to an informal evening of kirtan heartsong... the yoga of voice and music... a chance to listen and if you wish add your voice to the mix of meditative mantras and uplifting songs... accompanied by the soothing hum of the harmonium and other instruments.

No experience necessary, all voices welcome... sound helps quieten the ruminations of the mind... this encourages a clear calm space to arise... take a pause in the week and recharge your batteries... 

"Music touches you, music touches a place that helps you understand what it is to be human"

Suggested donation £5 - £10. No need to book just turn up.

We have received intelligence that the RosaVirus B can be treated by consuming certain types of alcohol. Your mission, should you choose to accept it, is to enter the infected area, with our lead mixologist and survive the intoxication that ensues!

As you travel through the post apocalyptic settings you will be required to concoct and consume several invigorating inebriation experiences. But bear in mind things aren't always what they seem!
