How to create harmony in life using Raag Kirtan?


Harmony vs Chaos? On Sunday 28th April, Professor Surinder Singh will share for the first time, about how he went about creating harmony amidst the traumatic events he faced, and what role raag kirtan played, and how you can use it too.

We tend to think, when will our problems be over??

One concern we hear from newcomers into the world of kirtan, is that the problem is too stressful to think about, and they feel they are all alone. We've all at one point, yearned for more calmness, peace and harmony.

On this online webinar with Professor Surinder Singh, discover key steps on how to use raag kirtan to carry you through life’s challenges, to clear the fog of uncertainty and worries, and allow us to see a clear path to take ahead with confidence.

Mantra of Bliss Workshop

In a world filled with stress and distractions, it's easy to lose touch with your inner joy. We slip into stress, being stuck in a rut and unmotivated. Even when our destination may seem clear to us but it takes us weeks or even months to get out of these situations.

What if you had a faster route to help you? That could cut the chains of feeling numb, unmotivated, stressed and in a rut.
