After a great start last November, Healing Chants, Kirtan, and Lullabies Singing Workshop is officially launched.  Each time we meet, you'll get to sing healing chants from around the world.  And each time, we'll be raising money for a great cause.  No experience necessary.  All songs are taught the traditional way, orally, by call and response.

On September 27th, we'll be meeting again to raise money for the Hopewell Music Cooperative in North Minneapolis.  Hope you'll join us.  Oh yes, and we have live accompaniment!

Our opening event was a success.  We raised $500 for the Sojourner Project in Hopkins, an agency that provides safe housing and advocacy to women and children victimized by domestic violence. At our second event, we raised $450 for Walk-In Counseling Center, the oldest free mental health center in the country.  Our last get-together was a fundraiser for the Center for Victims of Torture.  We raised over $500.

My own interest in chants comes not from any religious practice or orientation. It comes from my own experience as a hand drummer, mindfulness practitioner, and director of the One World Community Choir (see other MeetUp by this name). Singing with others is a healing practice--all by itself. You do not need to believe in a common set of beliefs or values. You will feel the benefits all the same.

We just grab a coffee and speak French. Some people have been coming every week for months... it creates a kind of warmth to the group.
