The Art and Application of Vedic Chant: Focus on Healing 

​A Workshop in Ojai, California, April 24-26 with Vedic Chant Teacher Sonia Nelson

​Discover How Your Voice Can Bring to Life the Ancient Vedic Sanskrit Texts for Healing Mind and Body

Experience the Living Quality of Vedic Chant for Yourself
Vedic texts, thousands of years old, are presented in the Sanskrit language and contain wisdom still relevant in the modern world. But it is the act of chanting itself that brings life to these texts as well as to the person listening and reciting.
 

Suitable for All Levels
The program will introduce basic chanting techniques used in simple and universally relevant chants to discover the art of Vedic Chant as an integrating experience for body, breath and mind. No previous experience in the practice of Vedic Chant is required.

 
How You Will Learn
Using time honored principles of instruction found in the Vedas, we will explore how the practice of Vedic Chant can be used to influence desired change in our body, breath and mind as well as the in the energetic and emotional dimensions of our human system.
 
Simple practices of asana and pranayama will also be given to prepare for and enhance the experience of seated chanting.
