Universal Kirtan – September Edition

Our Universal Kirtan for September will be delayed somewhat due to unavailability of Yoga on 7th on our usual 1st Saturday of the month.  Instead, we’ll be holding our Kirtan on Saturday, Sept. 13th  (8 pm, 156 East 7th, just west of Main Street, alley entrance, $15/20 requested, no one turned away for lack of funds).  We will be fundraising for The Abrahamic Reunion, an interfaith group that helps to bring harmony between the four different religious communities in Israel (Jewish, Muslim, Christian and Druze).  Obviously, there is no better time than now for sending our support for their worthy venture of gathering people from different religions to eat, dance and pray.

Universal Kirtan – June Edition


It’s our last Universal Kirtan until Sept.13th (note the odd September date for your calendars) — and we’re going to have a fantastic celebration of love, music, creativity, friendship and soulfulness!

Last June we did a night of ‘covers’ (Rock standards with a spiritual twist), so for contract this year for the season finale we’re doing Amir O’Riginals. This was a request from those near and dear, so their wish shall be granted. Songs and chants with my musical compositions and arrangements.

Please join myself, Chloe O’Loughlin, Greg Valou (on percussion & bass), Reuben Prensky (percussion) and Nenad Jankovic (tabla, percussion). We’re raising money for Seva Canada for their splendid work in eyesight restoration in developing countries such as Nepal, Cambodia and Tanzania.

$20 suggested donation, $10 – $15 for those on limited incomes, no one turned away for lack of funds.


The Caravan of the Heart is the Vancouver centre of the Sufi Order International. The goal of the Caravan is to promote love, harmony, and beauty using the teachings of Sufism and Hazrat Inayat Khan.

We have weekly classes on Sufism, monthly dedications to peace (kirtan/zikr), and monthly Dances of Universal Peace. Please explore our website and contact us if you have any questions. We would love to see you at one of our gatherings.

Shanti, Shalom, Peace
