Chanting has been a method of prayer over the centuries, to lift up one’s heart to God. Chant is a common thread of devotion to the Divine found in all the major religious traditions, Christian, Jewish, Muslim and Hindu. The monastic communities recognize chanting as a way of vocalizing one’s faith, devotion and yearning. Chant breaks the silence to open our hearts and minds and returns us again, to silence after sound, with deeper openness, devotion, love and oneness with God. These original chants, in English, are accessible to all, kept simple using 3 to 4 tones. They serve to deliver us to a place of quiet, intimacy and healing.
