A Day of Chanting and Meditation Practice with Adam Stonebraker

______

As we chant, we open ourselves to a space where devotion can flourish and the seeds of spiritual commitment are nurtured.”

– Adam Stonebraker

LISTEN:

In this audio clip, Adam touches on the heart of chanting as the idea of honoring that which is worthy of honor and how we infuse our lives with practice.

_____

Chanting has long been a pivotal practice in nearly all sacred traditions, and Buddhism is no exception.

The Suttas, the scriptural texts containing the discourses of the Buddha, were transmitted orally for centuries and preserved through an enduring tradition of chanting. When we chant, these ancient sounds resonate within us just as they have for millennia, creating a profound connection to the countless practitioners who have echoed these same verses through time.

Join Adam for this special daylong retreat that focuses on the transformative power of chanting. While the majority of the retreat will be conducted in silence to deepen the meditative experience, chanting will play a central role.

This practice is not only a method of honoring and internalizing the teachings but also a powerful means of accessing deeper states of meditation.

This retreat is a unique opportunity to explore how the rhythmic and meditative practice of chanting can enhance your spiritual practice, connect you more deeply with the historical lineage of Buddhism, and inspire a heartfelt engagement with the path.
