Overview
Bart Smit Chanting

With great compassion, courage and conviction, Bart opens his heart to embrace Greatness. He shares openly of his spiritual experiences which offer a perspective many have not thought possible. He is a unique soul that can go beyond the mundane to bring what is real into focus.  His teachings integrate ancient Eastern and contemporary Western wisdom to speak to the modern world.

Bart is a passionate lover of chanting. He has a deep understanding of our natural human impulse to sing and create a joyful sound which is the song of the heart and soul. When chanting with Bart, one experiences the mantra come alive, filling the reservoir of our hearts. And as we chant, we BEcome LOVE, opening our Hearts to God.

The mantra leads you, instead of you leading the mantra. Chanting is a form of meditation and it is a spiritual practice that assists participants in their meditation. It is one of the most effective ways of becoming absorbed in God’s presence. It calms the restlessness of the mind and purifies the heart. It is our natural impulse to sing and create a joyful sound – the Song of the Heart and Soul.

Each evening unfolds organically and begins with chanting for approximately an hour followed by meditation and closing.  As is the case with all teachings, the more you attend, the more you will receive.  Choosing to participate in all three gatherings will take your understanding and practice ever deeper.

Chairs are provided, and we have blankets and pillows for those who wish to sit on the floor.
