The Team Christine Kirtan Benefit
On November 20th, our dear friend and yoga teacher Christine Cipra experienced a stroke and spent several weeks at Rush Hospital receiving treatment.  Although Christine and her husband Charlie have insurance, they have financial concerns due to her inability to work for some time.

Christine has been a teacher, friend, sister, mentor, and healer to so many.  She has helped us with injury and illness.  She has shared our joy at times of new beginnings and consoled us in times of sorrow and loss.  She has helped us learn how to be in the world. Now she needs our support!  

Please join us on Friday, January 18th from 6:30 pm - 9:30 pm at Ahimsa Yoga for a celebration of our dear friend Christine. The evening will include Kirtan, a call and response chanting experience, featuring Rich Logan. Chanting is an amazing way to connect with the breath and intention. A great way to express spirit and connect with community, it's the devotional way to access the heart. We will be chanting in English, Sanskrit and a couple of surprises too. The event will also feature a silent auction of gift certificates, local event tickets, gift baskets and other fun items. Food, wine and beer will be served.

6:30                    Doors Open and Silent Auction Begins
7:00 - 8:00         Kirtan featuring Rich Logan
9:30                    Silent Auction Closes

All proceeds will be given to Christine and her loving husband, Charlie, directly.

On behalf of Christine, Charlie and Bodhi (their dog), thank you for your support!

A little about Rich Logan:
Rich Logan has been a featured yoga presenter at Bhakti fest Midwest in Madison. He also has been performing with Kirtan groups in Chicago since 2002 as a guitarist and fronts his own group with a revolving band of world-class musicians called Akoustikirtan. A serious student of Yoga since 1998, teaching since 2001 and a meditation practitioner since 1978, Rich incorporates his knowledge of anatomy and physiology with a unique understanding of spirituality in the modern world. He continues to study at the Yoga Circle under the tutelage of the enigmatic and brilliant Gabriel Halpern in the Iyengar tradition. Rich has an eclectic kirtan style blending modern and classic themes together through rhythm and chant. He accentuates this work with a mindful practice, focused on bringing us to the edge of 'experience' to 'witness' the moment unfold, only to realize it is us who are doing the unfolding.
