Vedic Chanting

Vedic chanting is a meditative practice from the rich tradition of Hindu spiritual practices. It is the art of listening and learning to recite with attention and care, and a deep involvement of head, heart and body in the quest for unity with the source from which sound originates.

Just as yoga practice takes us from outward movement to inner stillness, vedic chanting leads us from outward sound to inner silence.

The benefits include refining the ability to learn to listen, thus enhancing attention, memory, patience and confidence around the use of our voice.
