Singing Meditation is an interfaith spiritual practice that combines singing – of many types – with group observation of silence. No experience is necessary and all voices are welcome. Not all of the songs used in Singing Meditation are slow and contemplative. Many are high energy and joyful. Percussion instruments may be played. We sometimes incorporate Dances of Universal Peace into our evening-meditation in motion. The goal of Singing Meditation is to help the participants reach a place inside themselves where they can connect with the Divine, their Inner Core, the Spirit of Life. Participants are welcome to join in as they are comfortable or to remain in silence as the sounds of the voices around them deepen their own meditation.
Singing Meditation will be held one Sunday each month (Oct 19th, Nov 16th, Dec 21st, 2015 dates TBA) form 6:30-8:00pm.
The doors will open at 6 and there will be some tea available and a half-hour to socialize. The chanting and singing will begin at 6:30 and last one and a half hours. There will be tea and snacks available after the session and time and space to socialize.
These sessions are co-led by Fred Habib Maycock, a practicing Sufi who has led sacred chant for years and the music director of the Neighbourhood Unitarian Universalist Congregation, Susanne Maziarz.
