Satsang: Singing Into Silence
With Vickie and Doug MacArthur
Our special musical guest this time will be Doug MacArthur. Doug will share original music in his own beautiful way.
“Everybody with a voice can sing, and everyone with a breath in their body can experience their divinity.” Deva Premal
Satsang is a Sanskrit word that describes a way of coming together in community to experience the pure truth and love that is beyond religion or culture. During these lonely and isolating times, it is so important to find creative ways of coming together to do this. Even online, the simple act of joining together to sing can touch places within us that spoken words cannot.
It is not about performance or perfection. It is every voice remembering that singing is a universal language as ancient and natural as language itself. Singing together dissolves boundaries and opens our hearts to the silent truth that is beyond words.
Doug and Vickie will share simple songs and chants from various spiritual traditions you can sing in your own space, from the silence of “Om” to a joyful “Alleluia”. Clap your hands with lively rhythms and the beat of a drum, and let soulful melodies guide you into the silence that connects our hearts as one united voice. Together we will create a vibration of peace to fill the world.
We welcome all voices, all cultures and all traditions.
Watch for Vickie's upcoming book "Love Letters To My Teacher: How A Buddhist Monk Ignited the Love In My Heart".
