Chanting for Inner Peace

Music has always been a part of my life but it wasn’t until my late twenties that I realised it was singing that gave me the greatest joy. After a spiritual awakening and some years experimenting with different kinds of voice work and sound healing I did my first workshop with Chloe Goodchild and The Naked Voice in 2005. This transformative experience set me on the path to becoming a devotional singer, which crystallised in 2006 with the release of my first CD Planting Peace and a life-changing trip to India. Since then I have worked extensively with Chloe and been witness to the incredible power of voice and chanting.

 

I began my chanting groups in 2006 and currently run monthly sessions in Bristol and Bath. I also sing occasionally at Shekinashram in Glastonbury, Cheltenham, Swindon and all over the UK upon invitation. In the last few years I have sung at the Winter Bhakti Gathering (Gloucestershire), the Easter Bhakti Gathering (Sussex), the Bhakti Music Festival (Somerset), Colourfest (Dorset), Santosa Living Yoga & Bhakti Camp (Somerset), Bhakti Imbolc Gathering (Sussex), Be Love (London) and the Beltane Bhakti Gathering (Dorset).. See Events and Latest News for all my chanting dates.

In June 2012, I released my first Kirtan CD, Devotional Heart, recorded with Tabla Tom, and released the follow-up, Give It All Away For Love, in April 2016.

 

This practice of chanting is a great source of joy and nourishment. I love the depth of silence that is achieved by chanting and this is an essential element of my sessions. I use meditative and ecstatic chants with Sanskrit mantras and English words, accompanied by simple melodies accessible to the Western ear. The repetition of these chants is a powerful and transformative practice, taking us deeply into our hearts. Chanting provides an opportunity to sing out without fear or judgement, dissolving feelings of separation and awakening compassion.


I offer 1-1 and group sessions for those interested in developing their voice, chanting or harmonium skills.

 

Do contact me if you would like to find out more about any of the above.

I hope to sing with you soon!
