“You are a cosmic flower. Chanting is the process of opening the psychic petals of that flower.” ― Amit Ray

Chanting mantra is an ancient technique known for its ability to evoke movement of the physical and emotional energy that we hold in our bodies.

The vibrations and sounds of mantra are considered extremely important, and thus reverberations of those sounds are said to awaken kundalini, our spiritual life force.

When we awaken these forces we encounter our divine essence and all becomes possible.

Participants will be guided through an immersive and ecstatic communal experience through the application of mantra ritual, guided meditation, breathing techniques and kirtan. Participants should dress comfortably with the ability to both move and sit with ease.

$10-$20 suggested donation.
No one will be turned away for lack of funds.
