Multiple workshop series will be offered on an ongoing basis throughout the year. Workshops consist of four 1-hour sessions offered over 4 consecutive weeks. Each session content is designed to offer the student a sense of gradual development through a consistent practice. Students may register for a Sunday or Monday workshop series and proceed at their own comfortable pace.
Each 1-hour session includes guided breathing techniques, instruction in Vedic chanting, guided visual relaxation, and meditation. These offerings are in the traditional lineage of oral transmission and therefore will not include any printed material. Students are encouraged to dedicate at least 2 hours per week to practice over the duration of the workshop.
Students may bring a notebook to take notes during these workshops- Appropriate time will be allotted during the workshop session to do so. Those who are interested in Vedic Chanting in depth may contact the facilitators to request a customized session towards this.
Tuesday and Thursday – 7p – 8p
