is an innovative artist of the new kirtan movement. His sound marries the transcendent mysticism of traditional Indian instruments with the exuberant, groove-oriented sensibility of American gospel. An articulate and engaging public speaker, Stringer probes the dilemmas of science and spirit with a wry and unorthodox sense of humor.
Come play in the luminous world of The Radiance Sutras, a sensuous, poetic version of a classic yoga text, the Vijñana Bhairava Tantra. The name means “The terror and joy of realizing oneness with the Soul,” and the text describes 112 meditations, each a doorway from our everyday life experience into contact with the sacred healing powers of our inner world.
The essence of these meditations is simple:
· Select some aspect of life that you love, and dive in
· Allow your love to attract you inward toward inspiration
· You don’t have to change yourself
If you can't teach me to fly, then teach me to sing.
-from Peter Pan by Sir James Barrie
When you participate in a kirtan, the call and response form of mantra chanting, you’re not just listening to the music: you are the music. In Dave Stringer’s Kirtan Flight School, you have the opportunity to explore and redefine the edges of what music can be when the crowd is itself an instrument.
