Mary England and others.
The event is free and open to all, and an optional meditation is available at 6:30 to 6:50 pm in Grinton Chapel (entrance near the snack bar).
We'll be accompanied by harmonium, violin, guitar, and tabla. We'll be singing chants in both Sanskrit and English with words projected to make it easy and enjoyable for you to participate.
"Antonio Aversano is a life long musician and multi-instrumentalist. His Spiritual path has evolved his musical path into serving as a Sacred Sound Ceremonialist who opens as a Divine Conduit to channel the vibrations of sound and spark the Light of the Soul."
"Sahar's kirtan was an experience I will never forget...with its rich, meditative, surreal music and chanting that left me in an ecstatic, altered state. The energy was contagious, soothing, mystical and warm. I felt empowered in ways I can't express in logical terms. It must have been the deep connection on a palpable level I felt with not only my own spirit but the sacred spirit permeating the entire room. This transcendental state was beautifully summoned by the gentle rhythms that rippled sweetly throughout the room as the music whorled around. That night will remain with me my entire life." -Neal Grace
