Long Chant meditation

Third Saturday of the Month

6:00 – 8:30pm

Tonight with Ellen Giannone

Long Chant, also called “Ek Ong Kar” meditation, “Morning Call” or “Adi Shakti” meditation, happens (as it has for decades) on the third Saturday of the month from 6:00 – 8:30pm at the Ashram.

It’s a blessed opportunity to liberate yourself from the cycle of time and connect yourself and your chakras with the Divine using the foundational Ashtang mantra (Ek Ong Kar Sat Nam Siri Wahe Guru).

The 2.5 hour group chant roughly translates to “One Creator created creation… Truth is its name… Wonderous and indescribable is its wisdom and light”. Always a warm, friendly, and uplifting monthly gathering. David has passed the torch of leading Long Chant to Tara (she was a “regular”).

All are welcome. First time? Come at 5:45pm for explanation and instructions. We tune-in at 5:55pm and chant from 6-8:30pm followed by voluntary sharing and questions.

Please email Tara: [email protected] if you have any questions.
Space is limited to 10 participants. Pre Registration is absolutely required. Register through MindBody/Lotus. Create a free account, NO Membership is necessary.
Address details will be provided upon registration.

Cancellation policy is 24 hours prior to the class. 



 Third Saturday of the Month



College & Bathurst


From her first encounter with Kundalini Yoga, Tara experienced a sense of spaciousness, peace and relief from pain and so they’ve been together ever since! She’s been a daily practitioner since 2018 and feels deep respect for how the practice offers a form that mirrors the unseen transformation occurring within. In 2019 she completed Level One Teacher Training under Sat Dharam Kaur.

Tara’s teaching style is informed by her daily spiritual practices, yoga training and other embodied practices including Sensory Awareness, 5Rhythms, Eden Energy Method and the Feldenkrais Method. Her teachings are also influenced by her 15+ years experience working in the western healthcare system as a Doctorate of Pharmacy. Blending western medicine with Kundalini Yoga offers powerful healing potential.

Tara invites participants to cultivate an ever-deepening presence and awareness of self through their sensory experience. Using breath, body and meditation to heal, renew, nurture and nourish in order to be more available for living fully with peace, joy, connection and fulfillment.
