About the Event
(In person only) Nearly every spiritual tradition has a chanting practice used to help connect body, mind, and spirit. For the first Contemplative Mini-Retreat of the new year, we’ll learn and practice chants from the Sufi, Taize, Gregorian, and contemporary traditions and chant for group meditation.
This event is free; donations gratefully accepted. No prior meditation experience required.
