Studies show that meditation and chanting have positive effects on your emotions, brain and body – calming emotions, increasing the ability to process information and even softening physical pain. The National Institute of Health (NIH) tells us that meditation may physically change the brain and body, potentially improving many health problems with lasting effects beyond the time you spend in meditation.
Regular meditation practice can create new neural pathways for peaceful thoughts and calmer emotions.
Mantras are the mind vibration in relationship to the Cosmos. The science of mantra is based on the knowledge that sound is a form of energy, having structure, power and a definite predictable effect on the human psyche…Mantra takes the vibratory effect of each of your molecules into the Infinity of the Cosmos.  ~Siri Singh Sahib, Yogi Bhajan
Beginners welcome – no experience in meditation or chanting needed



Never chanted before? Come and give it a try! We will be chanting to a cd.


We will do both ‘sing along’ and ‘call and response’ chanting.


‘Call and response’ chanting means that first the “caller” sings the verse and then the audience repeats it. It’s easy! If you’re a visual person, we’ll have handouts with the words, definitions and explanations on them.
The gateways to the soul are opened with prayer, voice, sound, and repetition. The repetition of a vocal sound modifies and is remarkably healing to the breath, the body and the mind. Brainwaves begin to balance after only three or four minutes, and the muscle and skin temperature increases.  Chanting is a simple way to reduce stress and anxiety.
Sacred chants bring about transformations in your awareness. Chanting opens you to the unfoldment of your potential into the field of possibilities, making it possible for you to fulfill any desire you have. You will have created a new reality.
