Not to be missed! Forrest Evans and the Chant Ensemble featuring Nick Baker, Issa Malluf, Bonnie Schmader and Maryse Lapierre, will once again be providing powerful beautiful music for your chanting and dancing delight, this time collaborating with Isa Vasanti, teacher and facilitator of healing and awakening.
During this event "Chant, Dance, Love... Awaken!" Isa will guide you into feeling the chants in your body, expressing the invoked devas through your own movements.
When the word is chanted, its creative power is received in the body. Mind, body and heart become aligned. In that union the truth that dwells in the now is awakened. In the now only is to be found your authenticity. When you chant the names of god, you call upon their creative forces and make them yours, and amplified even more when you align them with your body movements. The sacred word is embodied in a unifying prayer of heart and body. You become the Gods and Goddesses you are calling upon, awakening within the greater Self in which we all dwell...
The various deities invoked in the chants are archetypes: mythic and universal characters representing various aspects of the self. Ganesh, the Lord of success symbolizing wholeness; Tara, the Great Mother of the Universe offering unconditional love to all; Shiva's strength of stillness representing pure presence; Krishna's embodiment of love and pure joy; etc. Those deities are not meant as a worship outside yourself but energies to be cultivated within. Isa will guide this magical exploration of your inner world and embodiment, as the music plays and the chanting continues...
Join us in this experiential exploration of the Self! Empty your mind, feel your heart expand, play with energy and experience true ecstatic communion within your body!
