Singing Meditation

Second and Fourth Wednesdays

7:00 PM to 8:00 PM in the Choir Room

Singing Meditation is a form of worship that alternates repetitive singing of short, simple, interfaith songs with periods of undirected silence.

Singing meditation involves singing chants, rounds, and other simple songs repetitively, until the songs sink deeply into your heart. Songs are alternated with undirected intervals of meditative silence. Group members do not need to have a strong singing voice or musical skills to participate and fully enjoy Singing Meditation.

This event is open to the public.
