What is OM Chanting?

OM Chanting is an ancient group healing technique that has been brought back by Paramahamsa Vishwananda to help restore balance and unity in people and the world. Sound and vibration are the essence of creation. OM is the primordial sound that creates and pervades the entire universe. It belongs to all humanity, regardless of nationality, ethnicity or religion. OM Chanting circles harness the transformational power of OM to activate the self-healing potential of participants. Participants experience positive shifts in emotional, mental, and physical well-being, thereby bringing more peace, joy and love into their life. The circle benefits participants and the surrounding environment in the radius of two kilometres.

During the OM Chanting practice participants form two circles – inner and outer – and chant OM continuously for 45 minutes. As the vibration is stronger in the inner circle, people swap every 15 minutes, so that everyone gets to sit in the middle for 15 minutes. When the practise starts, no new people can join the circles, for this reason, we ask you to please be on time. If you are running late, please let the organiser know (they are happy to share their contact details with you when you come for the first time)  – if it is only a few minutes, they might be able to wait for you. Otherwise, you are welcome to sit outside the circles, which will also be of a great benefit.

Participation is free but donations are welcome.

What is Kirtan and who are Bhakti Sounds UK?

To sing the Holy Names in a simple way, together: that is Kirtan. The group energy that arises gives each individual a unique experience as the kirtan progresses, which is why participation is such a joy.

Bhakti Sounds UK’s lively and soulful music has captivated the minds and hearts of people across the globe. Their joy in singing the divine names has been inspired by their guru Paramahamsa Sri Swami Vishwananda who has said time and time again that the name of the Lord has the power to elevate and subdue the mind, ultimately opening the heart to experience pure unconditional love.
