Chant Your Heart Open! OCTOBER 10 7:30 p.m. Unity of Vancouver / Centre for Spiritual Awakening 5840 Oak St, Vancouver, British Columbia V6M 4M5
Unity of Vancouver and Wendy Cobina DeMos are pleased to present Chant Your Heart Open!
Join us on October 10 at 7:30 p.m. to chant in various traditions and sing uplifting songs.
We love to hear your beautiful soulful contribution as we raise our voices together and open our hearts. This is the voice of your truth.
Chanting mantras can help reduce stress, heal on all levels, and bring peace, calm, and joy into our lives.
By repeating the mantras and inspiring lyrics, we increase their power. When we vibrate these sounds, we are tuning into specific frequencies of consciousness -- a bit like a radio tuning into different channels.
Bring a cushion or yoga mat if you'd like to sit on the floor. Chairs will be available.
The event is by LOVE donation and no one will be turned away for lack of funds.
Join us in the downstairs hall at Unity of Vancouver, 5840 Oak Street, Vancouver, British Columbia V6M2V9.
ABOUT THE MUSICIANS:
WENDY COBINA DeMOS (Jai Gopal Kaur) After years as a singer/songwriter, Wendy Cobina DeMos heard the beautiful Kundalini Yoga sound current and stepped into the ancient path of devotional chants, uplifting songs and created Chant Your Heart Open ( ChantYourHeartOpen.com ).
These gatherings, she says, are not as much about performance as they are evenings of community, healing, compassion, and joy dedicated not only to our own upliftment but to healing Mother Earth and to our larger human family.
