NAVARATRI KIRTAN WITH LILY CUSHMAN & FRIENDS
Sat. Sept. 28th 7:00 – 9:00pm
Join Lily Cushman for an evening of call and response chanting in celebration of Navaratri: Durga Puja. This nine-day Hindu festival honors different aspects of the divine feminine and is a potent time to invoke these transformative energies into our lives with mantra and Hindu folklore. Durga is one of the fiercest female warriors in the Hindu pantheon, an embodiment of courage, clarity and formidable compassion that we can call upon to navigate the complexity of our own lives with greater capacity and grace.
Lily Cushman is a lifelong musician and has been leading chanting for over a decade. She is the author “A Little Bit of Mantras: An Introduction to Sacred Sounds” from Sterling Publishers and a recent transplant to the Bay Area from her longtime home of NYC. She is joined by Radhanath Jerry Alvarez on mridangam.
This event is offered on a donation basis, with a $20 suggested donation. Doors open at 6:30pm, chanting from 7-9pm with Prasad afterward. NO PRE-PURCHASE OF TICKET NECESSARY.
