Vedic Chant & Sound Healing Applications
August 25-29, 2022 with Pat Moffitt Cook, PhD
This beautiful vibrational program is for all those who wish to experience, chant and practice the ancient sound science revealed in the Vedas and through Vedic culture. The program will introduce you to, or deepen your experience in crossculural chanting. The approach to teaching and learning is traditional through oral transmission, repetition, and with the aid of chant-texts, transliterations and English translations from the original Sanskrit.
The repertoire of mantras and chants, presented in this program, were selected to stimulate self-inquiry, personal healing and a deeper awareness of nature and spiritual resonance. Each day will be a combination of demonstrations, discussions, individual, dyad and group experientials. Participants will be encouraged to practice and explore what they have learned individually and in community. All levels of experience are welcome.
