“Spiritual practice is what gives us the strength to be here.”
The Garrison Institute welcomed world-renowned chant artist Krishna Das to the virtual sanctuary for a live webinar and practice session.
KD led us in an invocation followed by the chanting of Mantras and a discussion of how the use of Mantras and breath work can help us move more deeply into the Heart Space within. This trains us to change the way we experience our daily life and allows us to release negative emotions and find peace within, regardless of what is happening outside in the world.
Krishna Das is a Grammy-nominated chant artist and has sung with people all around the world for over 35 years. His music offers the practice of chanting mantras mostly in the Indian tradition with some Buddhist and Gospel infusions! By sharing his life experiences on the Path in his book “Chants of a Lifetime” and workshops with people around the world, participants have found a way to integrate spiritual practices in their lives in a better way with some peace of mind. KD has just released his 16th album “Peace of My Heart”.
Krishna Das is offering weekly online sessions with chanting on Thursday nights on Youtube, bi-weekly group discussions and Q&A on Zoom, and a six-week, self-paced online course launching on May 2. For more information on Krishna Das’ upcoming programs, please visit krishnadas.com.
