• Overtone Chanting

    for Personal Growth and Healing

From the electrons spinning around the nucleus of an atom, to the planets spinning around Suns, everything is in movement. Everything vibrates and  thereby produces sound. It is said that all that one needs to change any aspect of life, heal any disease, create abundance, or achieve transformation, is to raise one's frequency. The higher rate of vibration creates larger spaces between the cells, making one less dense and preventing intrusive energies from taking root. In this retreat through the regular use of sound we learn a technique to "raise one's frequency".

Listen to Overtone Chanting by clicking on the play button in the image. 

Overtone chanting is to produce more than a single pitch at one time, so that unearthly, angelic and bell-like tones are heard floating above the deeper voices of the chanters. The group will create vocal harmonic and slow down the experience of time. You will experience an eternal moment when you stop explaining "who you are" and become "who you are".

You do not need any previous musical knowledge to attend this Retreat.

Over the years, Auroville has won international acclaim for its efforts in social and environmental sustainability.

The Charter of Auroville states: "Auroville belongs to nobody in particular. Auroville belongs to humanity as a whole. But to live in Auroville, one must be the willing servitor of the Divine Consciousness. Auroville will be the place of an unending education, of constant progress, and a youth that never ages. Auroville wants to be the bridge between the past and the future. Taking advantage of all discoveries from without and from within, Auroville will boldly spring towards future realisations. Auroville will be a site of material and spiritual researches for a living embodiment of an actual Human Unity."
