Chanting from the Heart—Prepare for the Chant for Peace

Friday, August 01, 2014 -
10:00 am to 5:00 pm
This introductory workshop is open to all skill levels, and to anyone who wants to use sound and their voice as a part of their practice. In the workshop we will:
  • Talk about the three types of voice: Chest/belly, throat, and nasal. We will practice using these types of voice and talk about their benefits and drawbacks.
  • Explore the use of breathing as a part of chanting practice.
  • Practice rhythmic chanting and how to lead a group.
  • Learn how to project and open the voice, and explore the difference between singing and chanting.
  • Explore energy resonances with tonal chanting, and learn how different tones vibrate different chakra and energetic resonances.
  • Practice listening and chanting with a group to produce harmonics, move energy, and deepen meditation practice.
This workshop is part of a weekend of chanting practice culminating with the 24 Chant for Peace beginning on Saturday at Noon. For overnight accommodations, please contact the Registrar.
