Shakti United: Global Soul Kirtan with Johanna Beekman, Narayani Noelle Whittington, & Amah Devi
A Dynamic Evening of Kirtan & Soul-Filled songs from Around the World
Shakti United, heart-child of Gospel Kirtan songstress, Johanna Beekman, is an international initiative to celebrate Shakti in all her forms, dedicated to healing and supporting the divine feminine creative force.
Shakti United is an opportunity for powerful women deeply rooted in their practices and offerings in their local communities to share events, bringing modern-day priestesses together to share their incredible voices on a bigger scale. In so doing, we are able to see and support each other, and rise together to our fullest potential. Together, we are healing and elevating the female cultural experience.
A portion of each Shakti United event ticket & retail sale goes to Mitrata-Nepal Foundation for Children. This 501C3 is devoted to providing education, rehabilitative day programs, hygiene & nutrition education, and healthcare to girls in Nepal so that they, too, can rise. One of the poorest and least developed countries in the world, Nepal ranks 200th out of 230 countries in GDP, with 25% of its population living well below the poverty line.
Narayani is a full-time Kunga Yoga teacher, facilitator, and devotional music artist who has travelled the world in Seva since 2006. She offers a journey of sound: a deeply soulful blend of traditional sacred chant with modern twists. bof Reggae, Native Spiritual chants, Gospel, Traditional Hindustani music, and her own heart-felt lyrics. Her goal is to serve by allowing a safe space for freedom in all expression. www.narayanishakti.com
