heart No singing or musical experience necessary, only an open heart! heart


A day harmonium and kirtan retreat includes 

  • Learning the techniques of playing harmonium, keeping rhythm, focusing on our breath and divine inspiration as a way to release our most true and deeply connected voice.
  • Understanding basic chord structures and melodies to enable us to learn to play 3 kirtan songs.
  • Your Harmonium playing and singing will be accompanied by Tom on the Dholak drum.
  • Satsang (spiritual discussion) sharing the significance of mantra, ceremony and the Guru at the heart of devotion beyond words . 
  • Walk in nearby nature.
  • Lunch and snacks included


About Tom : “This path has changed my life. I want to share it with anyone who wants to integrate this energy into their daily lives. Please join me for this day of starting the journey in the practice of Bhakti yoga (devotional yoga) playing the Harmonium and singing. This is a Miracle on Earth that transforms us very rapidly."

I have much gratitude to all my teachers. They demonstrated that through discipline and spiritual training we can be truly free (which is not the same as blissful). By sharing these kirtan immersions in a simple, homely enviornment and keeping the costs accessible, I hope to spread some of the teachings I have received from my Guru. There is nothing wrong with boutique spa retreats, nor spending money on uplifting experiences. However, let's be mindful of the trap of simply seeking a "kirtan bliss" experience, or a fixed outcome as a result of taking part in a retreat or workshop.  Mantra practice, rooted in the teachings of wise beings, can help us not to push anything away, to be comfortable in our discomfort, and to embrace life in all its shades.  


To book to attend this immersion fill out this form below. Looking forward to connecting with you and sharing this journey together.

Please complete one form per person even if you are booking together.
If you selected "I have played music before" above please describe your musical experience. Do you know chords? Have you played any percussion before? Anything else?
We will provide vegetarian meals, with some raw sprouts/salads too. We need to know if you have any specific needs beyond that, such as gluten free, dairy free, or any other dietary needs
Stroud is about 40 mins drive from Bristol, 21/4 hours from London, and very accessible by train. Please indicate if you might need a lift from Stroud train station. You can change your mind nearer the time – this is just to give me an idea now.
We will have time to get to know each other and share our inner journeys during the retreat. However, please let me know if there are any other practical considerations I should know?
In the unlikely event I have to cancel the day retreat, I would refund you in full or try to arrange another date if that was convenient for you. If you have to cancel then you will only receive a full refund if you cancel 14 days or more before the retreat weekend starts, or if you can find someone to take your place. Thank you for your understanding. Om Namah Shivaya
