Sacred Sound CircleEvent Cover-2-1.png

Sacred Sound Circle - October

Come join our Sacred Sound Circle for the closing months of the year ~ happening the third Friday of the month. A gathering to share the profound practice of mantra and the healing qualities of sound. For eons many cultures have been coming together in circles to collectively raise the vibrations of the planet, to connect from an authentic place and deeply nourish each others spirit.

The first part consists of Bhajans a practice from Bhakti Yoga (Yoga of Devotion and Love) where we chant various Sanskrit mantras together in a repetitious melody, lead by Prema Margot on the Harmonium. Chanting naturally invites a meditative state and an opportunity to sing from the Heart, opening more and more to the sacredness of being. This practice is for everyone regardless of previous musical experience.

The chanting is followed by a delicious sound bath and healing. With respect and honouring the traditional custodians of this land, Tye Wade shares the profound grounding effects of the Didgeridoo, a way to reconnect to the earth energy through sound vibrations. Various instruments of singing bowls, flutes, chimes and voice will weave together to create a healing sound journey to help bring alignment and balance to your entire being. A sweet opportunity to let go and receive.

Three dates available: Fri 18th Oct / Fri 15th Nov / Fri 20th Dec
