WHY CHANT?

Through grief and depression, ill health and divorce… chant and mantra have been my anchor, a sacred practice that I leant into, received nourishment and support from.  I am far more resilient in mind and body when chanting regularly.  Always a ‘work-in-progress’, healing chant opens up my pathway to personal and spiritual development.  It is a gift – and a privilege – and one that no words can truly describe.                                                                                                                                                                                                                Sarena M

BOOKING NOW – “ROOTS” – be grounded, rooted, feel secure and clear within your life and about who you are.  Both In Person and Livestream via Zoom

Sounds and vibrations are a powerful form of energy. And just as a high pitched voice can shatter glass, and ultrasound break down kidney stones, then the vibration of our voices, using carefully chosen sounds or mantras that hold healing vibrations, can clear, balance and strengthen us mentally, physically and emotionally.

Indeed, chants and mantras have been used for thousands of years, by people of all faiths and none, to achieve health, healing and spiritual connection. And whatever your own belief/non belief, the vibration of sound leads you more easily into a place of stillness and silence, where healing can occur, and (re)connection to your wise, inner self is made.

There are so many benefits to chanting – from mental calm and focus, improved immune, lung and digestive function,  strengthen your mind, increased energy, improved sleep, boost your mood naturally, a better sense of your “Self” and last but by no means least, spiritual connection and development.

Sound & Silence – The Art of Healing Chant Series supports you to go deeper into healing chant – for your home practice; for health and healing; for spiritual connection and development.  come and dive in and experience the magic of mantra!
