The Positive Power of Chant with Jim Gelcer (Siva)

Please share what you do in 10-15 words: Kirtan wallah, recording and touring artist, composer, producer, and Bhakti yogi.

Why do you do what you do? It is my path and I’m doing what I love.

What are you currently fascinated by in your work? The positive power of chant and its ability to heal and transform.

How did you come to your path? Any aha moments or key teachers? A gentle nudge from someone at the perfect moment. I am always learning, and everyone is my teacher.

What book(s) are you currently reading? Reading and re-reading the Bhagavad Gita, Bliss Divine, and The Radiance Sutras.

What surprises you about teaching here? How at home I feel.

Jim Gelcer (Siva) is a Sivananda Yoga teacher and an award-winning and internationally acclaimed musician, whose love of music and yoga led him to the world of kirtan. His first kirtan album, Bhagavan, was celebrated as one of the best releases of the year. Blending traditional kirtan with modern influences like jazz and world music, Jim shares his devotional soul and invites a deep, open heart space.
