Creative Connections: Chanting

Chanting
A chant (from French chanter, from Latin cantare, “to sing”) is the rhythmic speaking or singing of words or sounds, often primarily on one or two main pitches called reciting tones. Chanting is fused into many religions regular spiritual practices. Some chants are practiced to invoke compassion, gratitude, healing or empowerment. There are numerous benefits to the practice of chanting. Scientific research has shown that the practice of chanting lowers heart rate and blood pressure, reducing anxiety and stress. Research has also indicated that chanting can even boost your immune system! Join us this evening as we explore several chants from around the world. It’s easy, free and may help you fight off a cold.

Spend an evening over food, creating, and sharing stories.  Join Director of Lifespan Learning, Pamela Smith-Loeters, on the second Wednesday of each month for an evening of creative spiritual activities and good company.  Activities will include prayer beads and chanting.  Families are welcome.
