Event Series Event Series: Renewal Through Divine Chant

Renewal Through Divine Chant

July 4 @ 6:00 pm - 7:00 pm

An In-Person Offering

Renewal Through Divine Chant

Weekly, Thursday Evenings @ 6pm - 7pm Central Time

Harmony is evident in nature, and it exists in every one of us. When we humans yearn to re-balance our energy and our deeper spirit, we can find sanctuary in the natural world, but also in movement, in silent contemplation.

Or, we can celebrate the Divine spark of sound. Using the gift of our own voice, our physical presence and our breath, we can rekindle the age- old traditions of prayer and chant. Sound has mysterious restorative qualities, and we discover even more so, when we participate in expressing sound ourselves. This expands when we join together in common with others.

In sound, we can draw closer to our Divine origins.

Come and taste a special opportunity to shift your state through embodied prayer and chant. This weekly meeting offers practices that have a powerful capacity to move our energy. Both spoken Sufi chants and sung chants more widely from the Abrahamic tradition will be offered.

Each meeting will consist of a teaching drawn from the writings from various Sufi masters and teachers, including Sidi al Jamal and Hazrat Inayat Khan, among others. There will be a time for brief individual sharing. Each class will focus on the hearts of its participants, offering chants to strengthen their own spiritual journey. Group dhikr will complete the hour.

You need not be a Sufi to join us. A heart-centered donation will be accepted but not required.
