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 to honor the earth.

e pronounced as "eh" as in pet = placement and relationship
i pronounced "ee" as in tree = awareness
