Kevin James Carroll Heartsongs

A world fusion of chanting ancient Mantras with Heartsongs.

Kevin James Carroll is a dedicated devotional singer who has developed his craft from years of experience leading Kirtan and Chant Circles all over the world.

Kevin travels the globe constantly with the intention of joining with others who feel the call to re-connect and remember who we are beyond the illusions of ego.

His intention is to contribute to the conscious movement using group gatherings of devotional singing of Mantras and HeartSongs to bring us to a closer connection to source.

Kevin believes from this state of being we can naturally and easily be kind and harmonious in our existence…

kevin-0079 (1)K. J. My journey has been inspired by many teachers, the most important of these being my mother. Here’s one of her wise quotes that influenced my journey. When I was in my 20’s I came home from a protest and my mother said…

 

Quotes from participants of the circles…

“I was so amazed at the energy you help direct in the room, and to be honest I felt it for days, I had no idea how powerful kirtan was until then, I am so grateful, thank you kindly..” C.M.

“What a kind and gentle man and how inspiring. He made 150 souls shine and together with him, we were like swimming in a pool of positive energy, love and togetherness. Hope to join you again next time.” A.K.

 

What an incredibly nourishing deep evening, feeling sound move through me in new ways opening up places that are longing also to be seen. A truly magical night of deep awakening and healing love. Thank you with love and gratitude.” P. X

Sing mantras, dance and fly together in the group consciousness, devotion and community spirit.

Kevin plays guitar, bamboo Shakuhachi flute, harmonium and sings.
Kevin believes it’s all about holding space and being an empty vessel for the heart of every one to unite or unify. “Within every song there is room for freedom. Where the different choruses can overlap and it’s my intention to lead the group to a point where there is no leader anymore. A space where everyone is guided by their own heart, where we are all singing as one voice. This leaves the participants feeling empowered and part of a unified whole, it gives us all a direct experience of the reality of who we are beyond our thinking mind.”
These uplifting and often high energy chanting circles are an invitation to co-create a deep connection to the heart and a positive healing vibration for ones self and the world.
Kevin will read the energy of the room and moove with you in the dance of the moment, delicately coaxing towards a goal of devotional bliss and the deep silence that follows.
Kevin draws upon influences from the temples of Asia mixed with his own western folk sound.

"We cannot change every little thing that happens to us in life, but we can change the way we experience it" 🌺

"Be Here and Now" 🙏

An important reminder to us all. Just 10 mins every day, can impact our whole life ✨✨

Evolve with Lou - Mind-Body Health Solutions
"There was a research paper that came out of Harvard, just recently, that said on average, our minds are lost in thought almost 47 percent of the time. 47 percent. At the same time, this sort of constant mind-wandering is also a direct cause of unhappiness.... it just kind of seems tragic, actually, especially when there's a positive, practical, achievable, scientifically proven technique which allows our mind to be more healthy, to be more mindful and less distracted. And the beauty of it is that even though it need only take about 10 minutes a day, it impacts our entire life. But we need to know how to do it. We need an exercise. We need a framework to learn how to be more mindful. That's essentially what meditation is. It's familiarizing ourselves with the present moment." - Andy Puddicombe

The Didgeridoo 🎶

One of the oldest musical instruments that dates back to more than 40,000 years. In traditional Aboriginal culture it is played on its own or as an accompaniment to chant and songs mainly by the men.

I was once working for a few years for a kind of Didj factory tuning, grading and finishing Didges in the far Noth of Australia,. The indiginous mob would go out to select, cut and cure them and then send them to us to finish, then I would tune them to concert pitch and put on the wax, sometimes send some to be painted by an indiginous artist. I remember coming home from a days work with my lips bleeding from playing so much 🙂 It got to the point where I could just look at one and know what it was going to sound like. I love this instrument. In the end, I went out to the bush and saw with my own eyes what was happening with the harvesting of the didjes. I saw that the traditional way of selection had been replaced by indescrimenant chainsawing of the whole trees. I was devistated so I quit and started making them from bamboo myself as a silent protest.

If the Earth 🍂 has a voice it would be that of the Didgeridoo

Om Mani Padme Hum! 🙏

When I sing this mantra it instantly brings feelings of peace, kindness and compassion 😇 It is known as the 'Compassion' Mantra. It calls and invokes the loving qualities of compassion.

My simple interpretation would be that to be yourself, (the jewel in the lotus flower,) is the highest goal in life. To be your honest and fully present self.

When we chant this mantra, its like turning the light on. It doesn't chase away our darkness, or defeat it. The light is welcomed by the darkness of ignorance. It is the light that makes known the unknown. Both are inseperable.

"Thus the six syllables, Om Mani Padme Hum, mean that in dependence on the practice which is in indivisible union of method and wisdom, you can transform your impure body, speech and mind into the pure body, speech, and mind of a Buddha." By The Dalai Lama 🙏
You can listen to my version of the mantra here ~ open.spotify.com/track/1ggwR1S3f1KNHTjSkis2Wy

"On the 1st of September, I will relese another new track from my upcoming album ""Feel the Spirit"".

""Oh Creator"" is a song about connection. It is a healing mantra to direct ones attention back from our limited thoughts, to the infinite self beyond them. I hope it can assist others to feeling a greater sense of connectedness. 🙏

It will be available on my website and online music platforms🎶

I am so excited that finally I can share some songs that have been played only in the chanting circles, and now they will be available to anyone, anytime "

I lived in this little village for about 15 years and knew Michael Quin Michael Quinn through his poetry nights 🎼 Actually it was the first place I shared my flute playing 🎵 I knew he was interested in the language but had no idea it would develop into such a meaningful offering to our indigenous mob. Language has its roots deep in the consciousness of our ancestors and genetic memory, its the song of the people and worth carrying forward into this unknown future. Thank you Michael 🙏A few people speak the Indigenous Djabuguy language fluently. Michael Quinn, an Englishman, is one of them. It was 1986 when he arrived in the Far North Quee... ...

Ngandu joy to you

Heartsongs in the Himalayas has come to a close and the feeling of what we created together lives on in me as an all pervading new level of peace, enjoyment, ease and appreciation of life and simply being.
Also a feeling of satisfaction that we were able to offer and facilitate a space for something we believe in and to witness the positive, gentle transformation that occurred in each of us, naturally in our own way in our own time. ❤ So beautiful.🙏

Two weeks dedicated to connection to the beauty surrounding us and to the beauty within.
Its a wonderful feeling to allow the mind to settle into peace, where the clouds open up to reveal the clear sky and we can see clearly again the infinite self beyond the clouds of thoughts.

THANK YOU to our participants who showed up with the same dedication to awareness.

To the Buddhist culture and teachings that supported our journey.
The people of Ladakh, the mountains, the clean air and pure waters.

Thank you Audur for holding such a profound space with the Asanas, dance and yoga nidra and sharings.

Chris Lane for supporting the journey with your beautiful music.

Tanzin our wonderful guide and masseur, bridging and opening doors for our cultural exchange.

Sonam Tzering, Veerle and Rene and all the wonderful staff, our stay was so comfortable and AMAZING food. Wonderful, professional hosts.

Susana and I send you all our love and heartfelt gratitude.

GOOD NEWS!
The dates are already set for next year.
10 days. 7th ~ 16th August 2020

Sometimes after a circle we take the flowers and offer them to the waters, not only to carry our prayers but to help purify the sacred waters. 🌟
Flowers hold a special energy of softness, sweetness, beauty and impermanence. They are used in ceremonies by all the cultures of the world because of the magic they hold and represent. 
I feel also that they mysteriously carry the power of the stones. 
This flowers were part of the Heart Mandala we had in the chanting circle in Hulst few days ago.
