Mantra at Midnight: an NYE Celebration!

December 31, 2021 @ 7:30 PM - January 1, 2022 @ 12:00 AM

Mantra at Midnight: an NYE Celebration
Spend a magical evening of conscious and joyous practice with community at Chi-Town Shakti this New Year’s Eve! Join us for one, two or a full evening of events: kirtan, yoga, meditation and mantra all the way through to the New Year. Enjoy bite-sized snacks (easy to pop in your mouth and swiftly replace your masks) throughout the evening and a sparkli but ng cider toast (alcohol-free) at Midnight.

New Years Eve Kirtan
730 pm to 830 pm
In-Studio or Via Zoom
with Special Guest, Kalika Fortin

A Joyous practice of call and response chanting in the beautiful sanskrit language. If you wish for more joy in your life now and in the New Year, practice it! – Open your heart and sing! (No chanting experience necessary. Everyone is welcome). Kalika will be singing virtually from her home. Choose to join virtually from your home or join community in-studio to sing the “response” of the “call and response” together.

NYE Candlelight Yoga + Meditation
9 pm to 1030 pm
In-Person or Via Zoom
The purpose of Yoga asana is to balance the energy centers within our subtle bodies to prepare for seated meditation in our journey toward enlightenment. In a simpler sense, yoga asana helps ease our bodies and minds into a more relaxed and focused state, more conducive to stilling the thought waves and connecting to our inner Light.

Join us for 60 minutes of a luxurious All Levels Hatha Yoga asana (centered on deep surrender of the past and a joyous willingness to be fully present in each moment of the future as it comes) followed by 30 minutes of Heart Meditation, fully opening to what is possible at year’s end and year’s beginning.


NYE Mantra at Midnight with Intention Setting
11 pm to 12 am
In-Person or Via Zoom

Gather with us, a group with full intention of welcoming growth and change as it comes in the New Year. Create a simple intention for the new year, an intention the stirs joy in the well of your Heart. Then, chant Ganesh mantra for a full hour, reverberating in the vibration of the sacred name of Ganesh, the elephant-headed diety. Ganesh is known as the remover of obstacles and the gatekeeper between the physical and devic realms. Welcome the magic of his presence and as he carries us into the new year, ready for anything!
