June 3 @ 10:30 am - 1:30 pm

bija mantras chant workshop


Tickets are not available as this event has passed.

Learn about the Chakra energy centres that are used within both the Hindu & Tibetan traditions…

These energy centres can help us develop, understand and have insights into our human experience as well as access our full potential.

Candida Valentino will teach you the process of chanting the Bījā Mantra and the pronunciation of the Sanskrit alphabet.

Both the main seed syllable and the secondary seed syllables of the mantra will be chanted as a meditation in a rhythmical and melodic way using call and response. At the end of the chanting there will be silence and a then chance to share your experience.

Candida originally trained and worked as a visual artist and costume designer for dance and opera. She then had a sound transformation in 1991 and started working with toning, overtoning and voice work as a tool for healing.

She has played with Don Conreaux and his Mysterious Tremendum Ensemble, and has also attended Raga singing workshops with Gilles Petit.  Candida went on to study Mongolian Khöömii singing with Michael Ormiston.  She travelled to Mongolia with him in 2000 to meet his teacher Terendavaa and has now been blessed to teach khöömii.

She currently works as a Chavutti Thirumal Massage therapist, Overtone singer and Tibetan Singing Bowl and gong practitioner. With Michael she has performed for H.H. the Dalia Lama and the exiled prime minister of Tibet.  She sings traditional songs, chants and mantras from various traditions as a way of expressing and acknowledging journeys that both externally and internally resonate with the eternal now.
