Chant is a foundational practice found in virtually all faith traditions, including Christianity, Judaism, Buddhism, and Hinduism.  While on retreat, we will explore the ways we have become separated from our own bodies, from the earth on which we dwell and from the wholeness of Creation. We will celebrate and re-connect using chant, movement, reflection and sacred dialogue. Chanting, the melodic repetition of a sacred phrase, has the capacity of generating a great deal of energy. This energy has the potential of being focused and directed as a healing force. You can also use chanting to open your center of spirit and body, allowing the sounds to move through, transforming your small self into radiating transmitters of God’s love. When we find the divine breath within and resuscitate sacred words, they come alive and become a vehicle of power and healing.
