Kirtan is a word that means “narrating, reciting, telling, describing” of an idea or story. You can think of it as a sing-along. The leader sings the mantra and the audience repeats it back. As you sing together, you experience a deep connection with the musicians, other audience members, and yourself. Because Kirtan has roots in India, many of the songs are sung in Sanskrit.
It’s thought cacao was first used as a health elixir and ceremonial medicine as far back as 1900 BC by the ancestors of Central America, the Olmec people, before becoming a ritualistic medicine used by the Aztec and Mayan cultures. Signifying both life and fertility, it was ingested by Royalty in ceremonial God worship and in sacrificial ritual.
