Sunday Afternoon Chai & Chant

22 October 2017

Come and experience the healing, centering and joyful effects of chanting - the yoga of music and song - and connect with others over a friendly cuppa. Chanting is just another form of yoga to help us connect in a more loving way to ourselves and others using sound.

Julie & Victor will lead you in a musical and vocal journey through sacred sounds and mantras, some in the traditional form of 'kirtan' - chanting via call and response.

If you're new to chanting, just love music or a good singalong, we'd love to welcome you. This is an exploration of the heart, independent of vocal skill or musical technique.

Like singing, chanting is energising, great fun and it gets us out of our heads and into our hearts. Chanting involves repeating mantras (literally means mind tool / free the mind) that help quiet the mind whilst experiencing the joy of opening and connecting to the heart.

We keep it simple and real - there are no frills, but plenty of heart and soul!

The benefits of chanting can include:

* Easing an anxious or troubled mind.
* Relaxing tension in the body.
* Opening the heart.
* Being happy and joyful for no good reason!
* Feelings of natural love.
* Deepening of self-awareness.
* Promoting healthy emotional expression and release.

Chanting is open to everyone, and is family friendly so feel free to bring the kids along too.

Payment is by donation on the day - suggested minimum £8 - give from your heart to honour the gifts of the practice, the space rental, chai & refreshments, and the musicians in offering their time and practice - thank you <£

Please bring along a cushion for comfy sitting - chairs can also be provided, and a botle of water.

We look forward to sharing a heart-felt and uplifting afternoon with you
