Join us for an uplifting evening of soulful and meditative chanting of live music with special guest Shantdeep on guitar and vocal, Scott McPherson on percussion, Lucas Tensen on cello and Richard Bryant on guitar.
We will chant mantras, meditate and bask in the sweet energy of the Naad, a place of inner peace which becomes so palatable when we silence the mind and chant together with open hearts!
Handouts will be provided and no musical experience necessary. All are welcome.
“If I can calm myself down and pull myself to the extent of the sound current of Wahe Guru, then I can feel I am part of the ecstasy of the Universe and the Universe is part of me. And if you can lean on that sound, this sound of bliss and joy, or if you can relate to the sound of Sat Nam, you can recharge yourself into that higher vibratory system and it can keep you going.”
– Yogi Bhajan
Date & Time
