The practice of chant is a time-honored tradition which has given men and woman over the ages and around the world a taste of something beyond this world, while embedded in the vibration of the voice and the feeling of the heart. Enjoy the practice of chanting for yourself, but even moreso, enjoy chanting shared with others. This is where the heart of chanting unfolds, and where the joy of chanting can be most deeply appreciated. May these chants encourage reconnection to your own inner song, and to the Great Song within us all.--- Michael
