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 creationthe 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.
