La Luna Lädeli & Shakti Shuttlez December 10 2017
Once again, La Luna Lädeli & the Shakti Shuttlez are joining forces to create a small community gathering before Christmas!
Saturday, 16th of December 2017 at AIRYOGA Oberdorfstrasse 2, 4th floor
Shopping & Chai: 2-7pm, after 9pm
Sing & Dance: 7-9pm
From 2 pm on come to the small room in the 4th floor to check the beautiful hand-spun and hand-woven shawls from several producers in India & Nepal that care about preserving the craft and give the possibility to the craftspeople to live from this endangered craft. As usual there will be cotton, silk and wool shawls from WomanWeave, that supports marginalized women from rural India. For the first time there will be exquisite cashmere shawls from Sadhu Handmade Naturals. And also a collection of unique two-sided shawls made from upcycled vintage silk saris put together with hand embroidered Kantha.
From 7 pm join the uplifting kirtan and Mantra singing with the Shakti Shutlez. Kirtan is "call and response chanting" from the Indian devotional traditions. You listen to a line and you repeat it. Relax your rational mind and open your heart through singing.
The tone of your own voice, the singing of the whole group and the sound of the instruments connect you to something very ancient: Singing together is one of the oldest human practices.
Afterwards, like always, enjoy some Chai, share and get another chance to check some shawls!
The Kirtan entrance is free but a donation is recommended. The money will be donated to the Pachamama Alliance: www.pachamama.org
I hope to see you there!
