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 in 2021 **
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
