Chants for Awakening is a community offering for anyone who is interested in consciousness expansion. This will be a weekly session chanting four specific mantras from the Buddha Dharma tradition that are designed to bypass karmic blocks by connecting to the energy vibrations of the higher consciousness that is an integral part of each one of us.
The session begins with invocations to set the sacred space, and a prāṇayāma (breathing exercise) to balance the major energy channels in the body.
The chants will begin by connecting to three of the most important Bodhisattva energies through their root mantras: Avalokiteśvara, Mañjuśrī and Vajrapāṇi, who resonate with the vibrations of compassion, wisdom and power, respectively. These Bodhisattvas will act as our guides as we then do a chant, the Heart Sutra Mantra, to connect ourselves directly to infinite consciousness. Through the energy of these mantras, we will be projecting ourselves directly towards a samādhi experience, revealing the nature of the True Self, and gaining greater understanding of each of our personal dharmas, the true purpose of our life.
The sādhana will conclude with a silent meditation and closing prayers.

the Avalokiteśvara mantra (compassion):
oṁ maṇipadme hūṁ
the Māñjuśrī mantra (wisdom):
oṁ a ra pa ca na dhīḥ
the Vajrapāṇi mantra (power):
oṁ vajrapāṇi hūṁ
the Heart Sutra Mantra (infinite consciousness):
gate gate pāragate pārasaṁgate bodhi svāhā

I have been facilitating the Chants for Awakening class since the beginning of this year on Mondays at Vista Yoga, but attendance has always been low and the class has not developed a consistent following. In order to keep my focus on areas where I feel like I am making a difference, I have decided to cancel this class, starting this week, 10/30/17. Many thanks to everyone who attended these past months and helped me organize my thoughts around this practice. My intention is to present Chants for Awakening in a one-time workshop format at various locations. More information about that will be coming soon. Prema!
