Learn how to come home to your Self, move more deeply into your heart, and release and transform the negative stories you believe about yourself and the world.
Imagine sitting on your favorite beach, watching and listening to the waves as they wax and wane.
Each wave is different. Some are little laps against the shore. Some rush at you and drench the edges of your blanket before they retreat. Some create a huge arc and crash hard with a roar as they hit the sand or rocks. Some are barely audible... a gentle ripple.
You don’t attach a feeling or judgment to any one of them as they ebb and flow, do you?
You don’t react or have an emotional response to each individual wave that comes toward you. You’re just mesmerized by the peacefulness, the constant rhythm — like unconscious breathing — as they come close and retract.
What if you could experience your life in the same way?
What if every situation, every event, no matter how sweet or tumultuous, were just another wave for you to witness, or even ride, calmly and without judgment?
As hard as it is to believe while this unexpected, massive global crisis is still on the rise, you CAN maintain your inner peace under any circumstances — with the help of an established daily spiritual practice.
Join us for a powerful hour with Krishna Das, global icon and bestselling Western chant artist, as he introduces you to the sacred process and profound effects of chanting.
Devotional chanting, which is practiced in a wide range of wisdom traditions, has been used for centuries as a way to train people to stay present in the here and now.
Chanting helps you stay focused... using the mantra as the object of awareness.
It coaches you to exercise your letting-go muscle — and develop the fortitude to release negative thoughts and emotions and the stories you believe about yourself... or anything else that takes you away as each moment comes and goes.
What you think of yourself, your life, your work, your community, and our world can change — not by altering external circumstances you can’t control, but by transforming your thought patterns. As a result, difficult situations become less painful because you're not as emotionally invested in them.
Of course, there are many spiritual practices designed to bring us continually into the moment...
So why chanting?
In the East, there’s a general understanding that the indwelling spirit of all beings is one and the same. Your true nature resides in the “heart cave,” which is the seat of the soul.
Chanting uncovers that place within you.
And as you discover that place, you’ll begin to experience a swell of peace and contentment arising from within. Each time you come back to the mantra, you create new neural pathways in the brain which allow you to move more deeply into who you really are: Truth, Beauty, Unlimited Joy… and Real Love.
In this profound and inspiring hour with Krishna Das, he’ll engage you in a specific chant — a devotional mantra in which he recites different names of the Divine Presence.
Repeating this mantra with love and devotion can help you open your heart and access your inner strength, which influences your experience of life regardless of what’s going on in the outside world... even if just for a few minutes.
In this 60-minute free online event, you’ll discover: How to release your thoughts — and let go of the stories you believe about yourself and your life A chant in which you recite names of the Divine... to start to uncover love and peace in your heart and develop your inner warrior Respite from your overactive mind and anxiety around the global pandemic — a much-needed reset The many ways you’ll begin to sit differently in your heart as you practice chanting — and how that may manifest in your life
