Weekly Kirtan Sessions at House of Gaia
Jan 31, 2012 07:27AM
Experience kirtan, the ancient Indian practice of chanting, and related Dances of Universal Peace, from 7 to 9 p.m. each Thursday, at the House of Gaia, at Outside the Box Studio, in North Naples. Healer, musician and life coach Rick Franz will lead the weekly sessions that he says can affect the whole mind and body and align with one’s deepest spirit and heart.
Franz, who recently moved to Naples after more than 20 years facilitating musical events in the Denver area, points to kirtan’s additional benefits. “When you actually open your mouth and sing—not just listen or meditate—at these events, the abdominal organs, solar plexus, heart, lungs and throat get a workout and internal massage,” he explains. “That feeds oxygen and energy to your brain, stimulating the release of endorphins and getting you naturally high.”
