Mike Cohen, Founder of Kirtan Leader Institute

In this program, Mike brings the fruit of his decades of chant practice to you in the form of a caring relationship, dedicated attention and proven teachings for students of all levels. 

In 2010 Mike founded the Kirtan Leader Institute (KLI) as a way to evolve the field of Kirtan education with insights, practices and design principles from the worlds of leadership development, training, Somatics, Ontology, Integral Philosophy, Sri Kaleshwar's Dattatreya Spirituality, and more.

Over the past 15 years the KLI has trained thousands of chant fans, harmonium owners and those who share Kirtan with others (Kirtan Leaders). Mike has learned a tremendous amount by engaging with many KLI students which has allowed him to experience "the miracle of iteration," leading to well proven teachings which have become remarkably dialed in over time. As a result, Mike and the KLI teachers are able to turbo-charge learning and growth in those with whom they mentor.

Each year the KLI trains hundreds of students‚ÄĒfrom total beginners, all the way to those who lead bands, create albums, tour and play festivals! Their¬†proven system (which circumvents the need to read or understand Western or Indian music or music theory) quickly and easily guides students to chant at home and share with others in a way that is intuitive and makes sense to those with no musical background.

Mike loves creating a safe mentoring relationship where students experience guidance and support. Together they create learning that allows students to fulfill their deepest heart longings with the ancient practice of sacred chant.

Michele Heaphy, Senior Kirtan Teacher 

Michele Heaphy, a lifelong musician, artist and natural-born educator, believes in unleashing the creative spark in everyone. Michele's diverse career spans music education, pottery studio ownership, and leading Kirtan. Whether nurturing beginning instrumentalists through their initial foray into music, mentoring high school percussionists, or guiding adults through the intricacies of working with clay, Michele's unwavering passion for education has spanned all levels of age and experience.

Michele loves leading students deep into the practice of sacred chant, reveling in those magical moments when students feel the transformative power of music and mantra. Since 2021, she's shared her expertise as an instructor at the Kirtan Leader Institute through online group classes, personalized mentoring sessions, and in-person intensive workshops in Boulder, CO.

As a heart-centered musician, Michele crafts original sacred chants infused with Western rhythms and powerful mantras. Her deeply moving and inspiring compositions have been delighting live audiences since 2015, with a global reach thanks to a series of singles released from 2022 onward.

What People Are Saying

"Mike has a way of teaching that makes me feel so comfortable! Learning a new instrument can be intimidating, but Mike brings fun, ease and play. His attitude and ability to break things down into simple pieces made learning to play the harmonium while chanting quite accessible. Highly recommended!"

Annie Edwards, Yoga Teacher & Business Owner

“Words cannot express how impactful this program has been for me. I can’t think of any way that Mike could have made it any more accessible or engaging, I appreciate how professional Mike was and also the warmth of his heart that comes through in all the content of the program and particularly on Zoom.  Deep bow to Mike and all who have helped create these teachings."

Reverend Shelley Dungan

"As a total beginner I never thought I'd be able to play an instrument and chant, and now I do it every day! I quickly learned to trust the Kirtan Leader Institute learning system, and it guided me through basic songs all the way through some complex and advanced Kundalini Yoga chants. It works!"
