Chanting from the Guha, the Cave of the Heart

Chanting is food for the soul, when I chant my voice carries me somewhere.  But that somewhere is inside the cave of my heart.  In Sanskrit we call this heart cave- Guha.

In this presentation Zeny shares the practice of Sacred Chanting and how ancient mantras and chants connect us to the wisdom of our ancestors.   By cultivating a daily practice of meditating with mantras and using the human voice, we can connect to what the Nada Yogis of India call the ‘Guha’ the heart cave, also known as the Anahata Chakra.  This heart space contains tremendous power for transformation and self-healing, for ourselves and for the world.
