"Chanting moves us out of our head and into our heart." -- Cynthia Bourgeault

Sufi wisdom says that chant is the bridge between sound and silence. In our time together, we will learn and sing chants and simple songs from various traditions. Singing in circle, in a repetitive style, makes it easy to learn the songs without reading words or notes, allowing us to have a more embodied experience. Science has shown that chanting triggers the release of endorphins and hormones responsible for feelings of joy and love, and communal chanting even synchronizes our heartbeats, so that they beat as one! Harmonies enhance the resonance and are welcome!

Paulette is a recording artist and long time singer/songwriter for peace, justice and the earth. She performed for over ten years with the group Just Earth, and sings with Shelley Graff's chanting group, "Women Singing in Sacred Circle," with the Threshold Choir singers, and with MUSE Women's Choir. She has taught and led chanting at Quaker centers throughout the US and Great Britain, as well as at Wisdom School retreats with Cynthia Bourgeault, who has promoted her a cappella CD, Timeless Quaker Wisdom in Plainsong, widely among contemplative Christians.
