About the event
Join Khem and Miriam for a heart-opening gathering -- connecting the magic of ceremonial cacao and kirtan to set powerful intentions for the new year.
Enjoy “Nana Marina’s Cacao," 100% grown, harvested, roasted, fermented, packaged, and distributed by GuateMayans only, from start to finish. "According to the Mayan Cosmovision, cacao was gifted to the Mayans in the creation story. Cacao is a sacred gift from the Gods. In modern times, many foreigners have brought out local landowners, and/or purchase cacao at extremely low prices, only to resale as "ceremonial cacao", while indigenous locals are not being compensated fairly at all." (SNEHA) We do our best to respect this sacred drink, with integrity, while supporting the Keepers of this Wisdom in Guatemala.
Kirtan is a practice of singing mantras and sacred songs creating a deep, joyful, meditative experience. No experience or vocal ability is necessary. It is a practice for everyone; fun, uplifting, and profound all at the same time.
Come sip cacao, sing, listen, meditate and find your mind-calming, your heart opening, and a deep feeling of wellness and wholeness.
Miriam will be joined by drummer extraordinaire Lydia Smith.
Miriam Zernis has been leading heart-opening kirtan and sacred music events with great joy since 2007 in NY, CT, Costa Rica, Canada, and Europe.
Her inspiration in opening to the Divinity of chanting comes from years of traveling with devotional music masters Deva Premal and Miten, as well as time spent with Krishna Das, Wah!, Snatam, and GuruGanesha Singh.
Miriam is an internationally certified Sivananda Yoga Acharya, Reiki Master, and a certified Holistic Health Coach. She also facilitates mantra chanting and yoga philosophy sessions for yoga teachers' training programs, as well as workshops and retreats.
