2013—Friday, December 6, 7:30pm through Saturday, December 7, 6pm
You are warmly invited to a healing chant retreat with the spiritual community at Sunrise Ranch. Learn to use your voice to deepen your spiritual communion and develop your understanding and practice of healing chant. Join us in sharing a radiant, healing release of spirit through chant.
The exploration and instruction will include:
- Sacred chants from Eastern and Western traditions
- Overtone chanting
- Use of ancient modes in contemporary chant
For over sixty years, Sunrise Ranch has explored chant and song as a path to communion with the Divine. A small, active group has met regularly to chant and sing together since 2004. We explore a variety of forms of melodic and harmonic chant in a free-flowing improvisational style. In the opening of the voice, there is a concurrent opening of heart and spirit that welcomes divine presence. The experience is profoundly transforming. Our group is open to visitors. Most of our work is done in the Little Chapel, a building of stone erected by the founder of the Emissaries in the early 1950s as a place of communion with the most High.
The spiritual basis for the retreat is nondenominational and requires acceptance of no particular belief or tradition, only a genuine openness to the release of spiritual current through the voice. If you wish to participate in a deeply nourishing and healing time of spiritual communion through chant, you are invited to participate. No particular expertise or experience is required—just an openness of heart and spirit.
