This monthly group is an opportunity to explore and experience the sacred vibration of sound, chant and mantra ~ meditation ~ the breath ~ silence and inner stillness.
Sounds and vibrations are a powerful form of energy. And just as a high pitched voice can shatter glass, and ultrasound break down kidney stones, then the vibration of our voices, using carefully chosen sounds or mantras that hold healing vibrations, can clear, balance and strengthen us mentally, physically and emotionally.
Indeed, chants and mantras have been used for thousands of years, by people of all faiths and none, to achieve health, healing and spiritual connection. And whatever your own belief/non belief, the vibration of sound leads you more easily into a place of stillness and silence, where healing can occur, and (re)connection to your wise, inner self is made.
We incorporate meditation into these monthly groups, which enables us to take better control of our “monkey mind” – learning how to notice (Witness) our thoughts and life events without judgement, helping us to be more present.
Complete beginners, who have neither chanted, nor practiced yoga or other “alternative” forms of healing, have felt immediately “at home” with both the chanting and our relaxed, friendly group. As one new participant said “I didn’t know quite why I went – but it has literally changed my life! It is my anchor, and a beautiful healing tool. Thank you Sarena for all your teaching and support.” AF, Worle, Somerset.
Beginners and those with experience are all welcome.

Previous participants have said:
“This is not only my monthly ‘treat’ but a necessity in my life now. Being part of a like-minded group, chanting ancient mantras for ourselves and others is beautiful, healing and quite profound. We are lucky to have you here Sarena!”
“Just to let you know that I loved your Sound and Silence session on Sunday – Great vibrations and healing energy.”
“I’ve been on chant workshops before through my yoga training; Sarena’s have been the best I’ve ever attended. She holds a clear, safe space, is compassionate, and we benefit from her own extensive study and practice as the energy is so strong.”
“As a complete beginner I wasn’t sure what to expect. The chanting felt quite strong, but good, and the silence quite profound, palpable. Incredible, thank you”
