House of Bliss, Chanting Festival
LET'S CHANT. LET'S DANCE. LET'S MEDITATE ON SOUND AND SILENCE WITH PEACE AND LOVE EVER-EXPANDING, HERE WE GO INTO THE BLISS.....
Everyone's invited to the House of Bliss Annual Chanting Festival. Do join us for a ONE FULL DAY of continuous chanting together in Mullumbimby, the spiritual heart of Byron Shire.
SATURDAY 9 of DECEMBER.
Now in its fifth year, this is always a fantastic year-end celebration, a kirtan gathering where Bhakti musicians play almost non-stop for ten hours, supporting all those present as we chant sacred sounds and the names of the divine.
In the true spirit of Bhakti (devotion), we will be sharing a richness of both traditional and modern kirtan from various lineages, chanting mantra medicine, and sinking deep into silence between chants.
Within a safe space of devotion, lovingly decorated for comfort and ease, kirtan gives us the chance to lift our spirits. We can join together with our voices, hearts, and prayers of healing, joy, and peace for community and for all beings in the universe.
Throughout the event, deliciously nourishing meals and snacks, refreshing drinks, and fantastic chai will be served by the beautiful Natasha and partner Madhu.
There'll be space for everyone to sit up comfortably all day and into the night with their cushions and chair seating as well, and plenty of space to DANCE!!
