Chant for Change:

A Social Experiment to Reduce Crime, Create Community, and Invoke Peace

Poster for Chant for Change-page-001.jpg

This is a Free open event for the community to come together to chant and meditate for the transformation of crime in our city (inspired by the success of the meditation practice of the TM Siddhi’s in Washington DC in 1993 where crime was reduced by 23% - see worldpeacegroup.org for more details ).

Please note that chanting is optional….. you can meditate silently, pray or just listen.  Specific mantras will be provided as well as a guided visualization.  Ann Waschuk has graciously offered to lead this event.

For your quick reference, here are the mantras for the 40 day practice: PDF and Audio (4 min)

*Please note that it will probably only take 30 minutes to do this practice on your own. We hope you can use the materials to guide your home meditations. Also, if you would like to share this experience with your friends, colleagues, and in other yoga centers, please feel free to join in from wherever you are.
