World-wide Call for Chanting
Please join the call to create a stream of continuous chanting for peace across the solstice. Peace chambers, groups and individuals from around the world will be joining in this annual event by chanting for an hour.
We are asking all chanters to include the vowel sounds in your solstice chanting followed by singing songs and offering prayers about love, as suggested by the theme for this year's chanting!
Chanting the Vowel Sounds:
Here is a description of the specific sounds to chant and the central metaphor behind the sound:
a pronounced "ah" as in ma = purification or to cleanse
e pronounced as "eh" as in pet = placement and relationship
i pronounced "ee" as in tree = awareness
o pronounced "o" as in grow = innocence or teachability
u pronounced as "u" as in true = carrying or being carried
