Chanting offers a chance for pain relief from such illness’, tuning into and releasing tensions in our body and bringing a sense of inner harmony, helping our bodies to heal to full health faster. We love offering these participatory singing/chanting and sounding events as the uplifting and healing effects of chanting together is becoming increasingly evident and scientifically recognised.
This is an inclusive space where we welcome people of any or no religion/spiritual practice. the lines between musician and audience are blurred: the audience members play a vital role in the music we will be creating together.
NO PREVIOUS SINGING EXPERIENCE REQUIRED – we will co-create a gentle and safe space to enable our voices to express freely, giving an opportunity to our heart to open and join together into a single melody.
**** We will also work optionally with the sacred medicine of “CACAO” , from Mexico, as a way to keep us centered and open in our hearth ****
