(Classic photo memory from the House of Bliss archives taken on 10th May 2013!!! Due to the need for a larger space for all the chanters turning up, they had had to say farewell to the little Yoga Peace venue in Mullum. This photo of Peter Walkden-Brown and Sangeeta Lavin was taken during the first official House Of Bliss gathering held at St. Martin's Hall.

Do you feel like chanting tonight?

If you're in Byron area, it's happening at Ajna Temple in Ocean Shores with HeartChant. If you're a little further north, head to Rasa Shala Kirtan at 96 Murwillumbah St, Murwillumbah. Whichever you choose, there'll be chanting, chai, and a welcoming vibe from 7pm.

How very blessed we were at House of Bliss on the 6/7/18 to not only have wonderful local musician Avishai Barnatan as a special guest, but to also to have the beautiful Sangeeta Lavin back home from her world travels and chanting with us again. The final song shared by Avishai was "Blessed We Are" written by Peia Luzzi. It is one close to many hearts here in the Shire. Yes, how blessed we are...

Sangeeta will be helping to keep our "Hearts on Fire" this winter, alongside the wonderful Houseband and more special guests coming from both near and far.

Next House of Bliss Kirtan is on 20/7/18 with the Shivanesh band joining us from Brisbane!! See you then💜

We will soon be releasing some more House of Bliss live recordings on bandcamp, which will be available for free or by donation. Any funds raised will go back into the kitty to help boost gratuity payments to all the bhakti musicians at fortnightly events and at Chant Fest 2018.

This beautiful Asatoma chant is currently available to be downloaded. It was recorded last December with more than one hundred voices and eleven musicians at the House of Bliss Chant Fest 2017.

This mantra recording is our gift to everyone who was there and everyone who loves chanting. It was the final chant after ten and a half hours of chanting together all day and into the night. You're welcome to download it for free if you like.

The ONE voice of the community is so beautiful!!

from the earth to the open skies"…..

Every fortnight we gather to chant the names of the divine. Every fortnight we follow the vision that Sangeeta Lavin set many years ago. Every fortnight we find peace and grace through these gatherings that are House of Bliss Kirtan.

This week, the Houseband welcomes back three devoted bhakti musicians who are all local and all loved by the community: Shai Shriki, Eltara Sri'ta Mahatma, and DanaLee Mynard. Together with Sudeep, Dinesh, Hielrick, Armando and all those who come to chant, we will find the Bliss in the Bhav and open more to love, more to grace, more to peace. Together we send our prayers out through song to touch and heal others on Earth and throughout the Universe.

As community, we gather in the heart of Mullum town, welcoming new people and growing from strength to strength through kirtan, dance, and nourishing wholesome food and chai. Doors open 6:30. Chanting starts at 7pm.

See you there everybody <3

Message from Alice: Organising fortnightly Friday chanting in Mullum continues for me this year. I'd love to create an even stronger support crew. The Bliss Team is currently seeking a sewing angel to hem satin fabrics, an Instagram whizz who attends House of Bliss regularly and would like to run the insta page, and setup volunteers who can come from 4pm (just once, or commit to assisting more often). All these roles are volunteer-based but the rewards that come can be surprisingly good! Looking forward to hearing from interested people 🙏🎶💕🕉 ... See MoreSee Less

Have you seen this? On the mid-year solstice, Uplift presents The Power of Mantra as an online opportunity. As part of an hours-long Yoga Summit, the mantra part of the event features some mantra musicians who have roots in Byron Shire and regularly share their mantra medicine with us locally. It looks great! The mantra part of the Yoga Summit will be on from 10am to 10:30AEST on 22nd June, and then available for the next two days to access for free. Let's watch and let's chant!

What is kirtan? And how is this ancient practice relevant in modern times? There are some answers here from some of the greatest modern kirtan leaders of our era. It looks like a beautifully made documentary.

Last Friday was definitely one of the best nights EVER at House of Bliss! !WOW! There was something unusual and special about it with a number of things that stood out. So much support in the co-creation for the evening!

We welcomed new local resident Emily Bodhi to share vocals and harmonium with the House Band. Her debut kirtan was a sensation! As the closing song, she humbly offered an original she had written just two days before, reminding us all that we are never alone.

The House Band with Edo and Emily was fantastic! So tight, and creating such a safe space for all of us to chant our hearts out, and to relax into the Bliss with deep presence and clear devotion. Thank you to Shunya on PA, Sudeep’s great guidance as band leader, to the other musicians Armando, Dinesh, Heilrick, Emily, and Edo, and to all those who came to chant. A night to remember.

House of Bliss is happy to welcome Dana back as a guest musician. Having run the admin and décor between 2013 and 2016, Dana is a key member of the House of Bliss community.

Music has always featured in her life - from listening to pop on her transistor radio as a kid, to studying contemporary music as an adult.

In 2004 Dana received a Diploma of Contemporary Music from the Northern Rivers Conservatorium in Lismore. She founded Spirited Events in 2012 “to provide events for the transition of magic to happen between the musician and the listeners until they become as one”.

After studying, and still seeking her place in the musical world, she came across Indian Classical Music and undertook some studies with local teacher Tahir Qawwal. This added what she felt was the missing element to her experience, and led her to follow a devotional and sacred pathway in music and sound.

During much of this time, chanting was always on the periphery, from time spent living an ashram-style life in the Northern Rivers, to attending gatherings with friends.

“Working alongside many devotional musicians became fertile ground for growing kirtan in my own life. I fell in love with the way that chanting mantras can bring stillness and devotion into life, and how it brings people together. It’s a never-ending ocean we can dive into and then rise up from with pearls of beauty. I chant for myself to bring a sense of peace into my life and connect to the spiritual support that’s available by using mantras in this way. I enjoy the opportunity to share my voice with others for upliftment and transformation.

I’m very grateful to all who have shared their musical and devotional wisdom with me and enjoy the community of beautiful chanters here in the Northern Rivers and beyond.”

To join with Dana and everyone else in the chant, do come along this Friday to a warm cosy evening at House of Bliss.

Our chanting community loves to travel and share the joy of kirtan all over the world.

These last few months Sangeeta (House of Bliss founder) has been sharing her devotion to bliss through kirtan in India.

This video of Sangeeta and friends was filmed in Ramana Ashram in 2016. The gathering was a reception held for Balinese spiritual leader Ida Pedanda Made Gunung, not long before his death.

The joy of the chant is so heart-touchingly beautiful!!

Thankyou Sangeeta for all you do.

Shunya Bell, the Bliss Team's awesome sound technician, has just released his new solo piano album! IT'S SO EXCITING!!! He's a great musician and producer. After so many years of collaborations and support of other artists, it's wonderful to hear his very first solo album!

Message from Shunya to you:
"When was the last time you immersed in an album of solo piano? Nils Frahm? Maybe Gonzales, or Ludovico Einaudi? I am now adding (really, very humbly) my own offering to the genre.

'The Secret Chord' is released today, on this new moon, in all the major digital stores including Bandcamp and Spotify.

The music is melancholic, elegant and of course spacious. Most were written here in the Caldera (Northern NSW, Australia) over the summer, the rest at a ten day retreat at Osho Leela last August, my fellow attendees relaxing and processing on the sofas in the foyer.

So, nine months of improvisation captured on dictaphone and then fine tuned into actual pieces with beginnings, middles and ends, with many secret Shunya chords that only I know about.

Early reflections I recieved from friends include 'simply beautiful', 'restful atmospheres', 'deep emotional impact' and 'like snuggling up on a sofa with someone gently stroking your hair.'

I hope you choose to add The Secret Chord to your collection.

Blessings Shunya"

It’s exciting to welcome Clarissa Pollack back to House of Bliss for this week’s Friday night kirtan!!

A violinist since the age of three, her passion and talent for the instrument shine through in every note. Sublime sounds that lift the spirits. She also sings beautifully. Seven years ago, Clarissa discovered kirtan and has since played internationally with various kirtan groups and lineages.

Her bhakti practice extends from offering workshops for people newly discovering this mantra chanting practice, to playing violin with internationally acclaimed kirtan artists.

We hope you’ll enjoy this brief video of Clarissa’s life as a yogini and assistant yoga teacher trainer at Krishna Village near Uki. The Village is a yoga retreat centre, an eco yoga community set on an organic farm, called Krishna Farm. Her work includes sharing daily kirtan practice with devotees, volunteers, retreat guests, and residence staff, usually averaging fifty people in residence... All are welcome!

For more on Clarissa, come along to chant together at House of Bliss, and visit her at Krishna Village:

Devi Kripa Grace & Protection (composed by Edo & Jo) - Last Friday was definitely one of the best nights EVER at House of Bliss! !WOW! There was something unusual and special about it with a number of things that stood out. So much support in the co-creation for the evening!

We welcomed new local resident Emily Bodhi to share vocals and harmonium with the House Band. Her debut kirtan was a sensation! As the closing song, she humbly offered an original she had written just two days before, reminding us all that we are never alone.

The House Band with Edo and Emily was fantastic! So tight, and creating such a safe space for all of us to chant our hearts out, and to relax into the Bliss with deep presence and clear devotion. Thank you to Shunya on PA, Sudeep’s great guidance as band leader, to the other musicians Armando, Dinesh, Heilrick, Emily, and Edo, and to all those who came to chant. A night to remember.

Thanks to all who came in person and in spirit to join us for this great night of chanting. It was swingin'!

🌿The Edo Kahn and Jo Mall Tribute Band has now been born (LOL) 😂 

Though we were all disappointed that Edo and his partner Emily missed their flight from Sydney and suddenly couldn't join us, the energy was still fantastic🎼🎷🥁✨

👼True Practice lies in the ability to overcome adversity so that we can find the peace within, act with compassion, and share unconditional love 🕉☮️💟Om Shanti Om 🕉☮️💟

Jasmine offered a beautiful song called Saraswati, written by the late Jo Mall 🕊So beautiful... In honour of Edo and Jo's devotion to the Divine, the band also did covers of other mantras that Edo and Jo often share/d🌿

Uma Parvati Ananda Mayi - Our most recent House of Bliss was such a joyous gathering! Every time the vibe is comfortingly similar, but with a freshness brought mainly by the mix of Houseband and guest musicians at each event. 

Sonic weavings took us through spaces of peaceful deep introspection, and ecstatic high-volume singing and dancing. About 85 people were in the house, welcomed by warm decor, led by lovely musicians, and blessed with a perfectly tweaked sound system, we all had a wonderful night. Thanks everyone!

Extra love and gratitude to all the volunteers who help make this night what it is.

Om Namah Shivaya!
