CHANTING EVENINGS Sanskrit KIRTAN CALL OF THE HEART

Saturday 12th October, Saturday 9th November & Sunday 8th December 7pm

 

ADDRESS: Studio 4, St Oswald's Studios, Sedlescombe Road, West Brompton, London (don't use post code in Google maps as takes you to wrong place- left WB station, Left Lilie Road, Right Sedlescombe Road. Enter through black iron gate on right)

 

NO PRIOR KNOWLEDGE OF SANSKRIT OR SINGING NECESSARY. Just an open heart.

 

This is really chanting where there is no "knowledge" needed, it is experiential

The sangha, the group join in, in form of call and response

Gradually the mind quietens and the attention drops to fill the body,

and awareness of place, the present, free from the seeming contsraint of time and space

Eventually "I" would disappear and it becomes a meditation

 

The activities will involve:

 

Sounding

Vedic Chanting

Being Full of Joy

Letting body vibrate and be nourished

by the sounds

Embodying sounds

Being as a symphony,

in union together, one voice

Letting go of tension

 

We also look at some of the words and language of the Vedic chants in more depth and have a period of reflection on this.

 

FREE! (Collection box at end if wish to make a donation)

 

There are some Yoga mats and blankets at the venue and am working on the cushions. In the meantime, do bring a cushion or block to be as comfy as possible and more importantly...

 

Don't be afraid of your natural sound. They say seeing is believing- well singing is being and singing Sanskrit is being happy.
