Great Mother Chant (and Dance) of 2023

We held our 6th Annual Great Mother Chant in May 13, 2023 with special guest, Gary Waryan on tablas.  This year we added in “Chant and Dance” to make sure attendees knew you were free to get up and move your bodies to the timeless rhythms!   Gary was his usual talented self, making those beautiful tablas dance and sing.  The band was rounded out with Adam Wolter on cello, bass, and vocals, Arlys Alford, on vocals and keys, Andrew Navaro on cahone and David Schmit on vocals and guitar.

There is a beautiful couplet from Ramananda, the 18th century Bengali devotee to the Divine Mother, that we sang that night:

“May you come to rest gently,
Upon the open lotus of my heart,
And play with your pure awareness
The many-stringed instrument of my mind.”

Here are a couple photos from the evening
