Garrison Blog Post on Chanting w Krishna Das

 

Garrison Institute recently asked me to write a blog post for them about my experience chanting with Krishna Das as part of his "Pilgrim Heart" 2018 February retreat. The article is a good introduction to the practice of chanting, if you are new to it, as well as some of KD's history with the practice. Check it out!

If you have ever been to a sitting meditation retreat or gone to a great yoga class, you know the power of group practice to support and uplift–but nothing can really prepare you for the first time you hear a room full of hundreds of practitioners chant a mantra together. It is breathtaking.
