Om is the first sound of the universe, the sound of the divine within each of us. It connects all living beings to nature and to each other.
What is Om Chanting?
Om Chanting is a powerful, meditative practice. It is not a performance! It doesn’t matter what your voice sounds like, or whether you can hold a tune. All voices mix together into one, creating a powerful healing environment.
Chanting gives your busy mind a consistent focal point in meditation. If you find it hard to meditate in silence, this might just be the key to finding comfort in your practice.
The long exhales required for chanting Om create a deep pranayama (breathwork) experience. This only enhances the benefits of the practice.
What will happen on the night?
We’ll begin with an introduction and grounding. Then, we’ll chant as a group. Lastly, we’ll spend a little time in silent meditation, followed by a sharing circle. All up, you can expect to be with us for around 90 minutes.
What are the benefits of Om Chanting?
Studies on group chanting have found that it can:
– Decrease stress and anxiety
– Improve symptoms of depression
– Promote a positive mood, feelings of relaxation and focused attention.
With practice, you’ll deeply connect with yourself and others. It helps release tension related to life’s stressors, and creates a sense of physical and emotional healing and wellbeing.
