Chanting: Vibrations of Love @ The Well on Bowen
Jun 15 @ 7:00 pm – 8:30 pm

“Chanting is a way of getting in touch with yourself. It’s an opening of the heart and letting go of the mind and thoughts. It deepens the channel of grace, and it’s a way of being present in the moment.” Krishna Das

Lend your voices, your ears, and your hearts in creating a light filled vibrational harmony to offset these turbulent times!

Facilitated by musicians Jack & Soorya Ray Resels and friends, this will be a time of playful celebration to lift hearts, minds, and spirit through singing simple chants for all to sing.

Looking forward to chanting our hearts open together with you. The joy of singing in community is healing.

No experience required!
