Monthly Sing

with Shastri Alexander deVaron

May 5th

Date details +
    Room: Windhorse

    For anyone who wishes to join mindfulness and song...

    This two-hour gathering will include singing in unison, in parts, rounds and vocal warm-ups. We will also mix in mindfulness practice and guided vocal exploration. 

    Singing prompts the body to release endorphins, tones up the muscles in the torso, benefits heart, lungs and circulation, helps free up emotions, and creates a strong sense of community. It’s also a great gateway into different cultures:  we will sing music from many countries and centuries.

    Whatever your relationship with singing might be, our gatherings will be a safe and accepting place to explore your voice. 

    Each meeting is its own event, so you can come when your schedule allows.

    Shastri Alexander deVaron began meditating in 1980, and studying in Shambhala in 1982. He met Chögyam Trungpa in 1985, and was empowered as both a teacher and meditation instructor in 1986.   In 2010, Sakyong Mipham appointed him the Shastri (senior teacher) of the Philadelphia Shambhala Center.

    In addition to teaching in Shambhala, he has taught stress management programs for the Penn Program for Mindfulness, and serves on the music faculty of Temple University.

    Most recently he has been leading workshops joining mindfulness and song, exploring the transformative and healing power of the human voice.
