An immersive weekend workshop with Sonia Nelson, founder of the Vedic Chant Center.

The qualities of the meditative mind can leave us as we lead daily lives filled with activity, responsibility, and challenging relationships.

Calm focused attention and a sense of space often give way to agitation, distraction and/or mental exhaustion.

Engaging, even for a brief time, in an active relationship with sacred sound can have a profound and refreshing effect on our mental state.

Through the activity of simple chanting from Vedic texts we can uncover a state of mind that is awake, stable and receptive and that functions as an ally in all aspects of our lives.

In the workshop you will be taught:

  • Basic skills of Vedic chanting
  • Simple chants with relevant themes
  • Techniques of Vedic chanting to increase focus, memory and a calm yet alert mental state.
  • Chanting in combination with meditative practices from the yoga tradition

No previous chanting or meditation experience is required.

A beautiful place for Vedic Chant

The venue is the sonorous Pepper Tree Pavilion, whose acoustics suites itself to the immersive sound of Vedic Chant, and has hilltop vistas of the beautiful East End of the Ojai Valley and surrounding mountains.
