Meditation by the Bay, Grand Drive, Herne Bay
Tues 16th January 7-8pm
Healing Mantras

Sanskrit Mantras are very old and have been used for healing and for facilitating a deep meditative state for thousands of years. Sanskrit is no longer spoken but it is the language of the Ancient Indian Texts and Scriptures, though the mantras can be completely non religious, actually pre-dating organised religion.

I find the feel and sound of them very powerful and beautiful. There are mantras all for different purposes, many for healing and spiritual growth. I love to sing them and I invite you to come join me and experience the power of sacred healing chanting for yourself. Whilst mantra can be used for facilitating a meditative state, many people also find them to be uplifting and joyful especially when sung. £5

Toning and Overtoning

An opportunity to learn or practise your overtoning. Suitable for beginners and improvers. An ancient practice also called harmonic singing, overtone chanting or simply overtoning. This style of singing is where you produce more than one sound at a time. The tones are already there but using the shape of the mouth and tongue the other tones are amplified creating audible high pitched whistling type tone (or tones) above the main note. Often described as magical, beautiful and Otherworldly. It can facilitate trance / journey / meditative states even more than other types of vocal sounding in singer and listener alike. It has its roots in spiritual practice around the world such as Tibet. We will learn western overtoning which is easiest on the voice. We will start with simple toning and then move into overtones Booking Essential £10.
