Chanting

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Due to the current pandemic restrictions we still can not come together as a group.

However, Govinda will be chanting live on Instagram at 4pm (Australian Eastern Standard Time).

All are welcome to listen and participate.

“Chanting Clears the Mind & Revitalises the Spirit”

Chanting sacred words raises our vibration and when this is done in a group setting the effects are magnified.

Chanting can provide several physical benefits including giving us more energy, lowering stress & anxiety, reducing blood pressure and assisting with overcoming addictions and depression.

** Chanting at Virginia Todd Hall recommences 4 October **

Please join us for an afternoon of chanting and discussions and discover the benefits yourself.

We host monthly chanting on the first Sunday of each month from 1.00pm – 3.30pm.
Govinda leads us in the chanting accompanied by the band.

We end the session with a home baked afternoon tea for a $3.50 donation.

We meet at Virginia Todd Hall, 9-15 Clarence Street, Geelong West

** Please bring your own cushion **
