This meetup group has been set up to connect the community of people in Dublin and surrounding areas who are interested in sound and its effects on wellbeing. This includes people who simply enjoy singing together, as well as people who specifically use sound for its healing effects. If you would like to learn more about the practice of Sound Healing, look at the 'Pages' tab in the menu above.
The Sound Healing Practitioner Training course is now offered in Ireland. It is accredited by the College of Sound Healing (UK) and recognised by the CMA (Complementary Medical Association).
The course consists of five 2-day courses undertaken over an 18 month period. This training can be undertaken by people whose intention is to heal themselves as well as those who would like to become Sound Healing Practitioners and work with others.
The initial course 'An Introduction to Sound Healing with the Voice' is open to everyone. See Upcoming Meetups for more details.
Check out the pages and discussion boards for more info on Singing, Voice Work & Sound Healing.

‘At the heart of each of us, whatever our imperfections, there exists a silent pulse of perfect rhythm, a complex of waveforms and resonances which is absolutely individual and unique and yet which connects us to everything in the universe. The act of getting in touch with the pulse can transform our personal experience and in some way alter the world around us’.
George Leonard, ‘The Silent Pulse’ Bantam Books, 1981
For two hours every Tuesday evening (with a new weekend Kirtan on Fridays nights!), devotees play accompaniment on Indian musical instruments — mrdanga, kartals and harmonium — to kirtanis singing improvised renditions of the Hare Krishna maha-mantra (see page bottom) with other members antiphonally chanting in response.
From the beginning to the end of the kirtan, the chanting will often increase in intensity, to the point where many attendees are unable to keep from dancing. This is in fact a natural expression of the spirit soul's true nature — to be sublimely happy — after the bonds of the material world have become disengaged.
Usually there is a short break in the middle when one of our local pandits illuminates some aspect of the maha-mantra which may help in our private chanting & spiritual progress. There is no formal structure to the event, so attendees are free to come & go as they wish.
Tuesdays 6:30pm - 8:30pm Thursdays 7:00pm - 9:00pm Beginning in February: Fridays 8:00pm - 9:00pm Free (donations into box welcome)
