Chanting

 

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

We anticipate that we will come together again in 2021.

Govinda will be chanting live on Instagram on Saturday afternoons from 4pm (AEST).

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.
