AUM Chant/Meditation

Every six weeks or so...

Sundays 1/29, 3/19, 4/?, 6/18

10:30am - 12 noon


68 Mountain Rest Rd, New Paltz, NY 12561

  Join Dahlia Bartz Cabe and community in an extended Aum chant to celebrate the zenith of light that is the summer solstice. The word Aum is considered to be the sacred syllable of creation—the symbol of the Divine in all. Simply chanting the single sound of Aum, we immerse ourselves in the infinite ocean of Being. Thus united in the One, a powerful healing vibration radiates through us, from us and out into the world.

We will chant the Aum for fifty minutes, sit for a short while in silent meditation, then share our hearts and voices in sacred song.

All are welcome; no experience is necessary.  

$10 donation.

  Sunday Morning Vocal Village

In Service of Sacred Unity Within and With Other

Every other Sunday
10:30 AM - 12:00 Noon   

Guided by Amy McTear with a changing ensemble of talented music makers.


Many cultures and spiritual traditions have used chanting as a means of entering the heart, releasing anxieties of the mind and achieving union with the spirit.

Join us as we sing chants from Hindu, Tibetan, African, Native American, mid-eastern  and western traditions. We will let our hearts revel in meditative and ecstatic  chanting as well as rest in the deeply restorative silence produced by our harmonic  choirs with the crystal singing bowls and gong.

Untrained and heartfelt voices are both welcome and necessary. Bring a pillow if you  wish to sit on the floor. Chairs will be provided.

The word Aum is considered to be the sacred syllable of creation-the symbol of the divine in all. Chanting Aum, the vibration permeates every cell of your body. A profoundly simple and powerful healing radiates through you, from you and out into the world. This ultimate ultrasound can clear your mind, relax your body, open your heart and connect you to the mystery and wonder of the universe.

We will chant Aum fifty minutes, sit in sweet silence, then share our hearts and voices in sacred song.  
All are welcome; no experience is necessary.

Haiku is an elegant form of Japanese poetry that allows for getting to the heart of the matter in just seventeen syllables. Dahlia will teach a fun and simple approach to haiku and to watercolor collage that requires no artistic "talent" or experience, only the urge to create. Combining these art forms results in a revealing expression of yourself.
