On Saturday, September 20, 2014, we shall be sponsoring a day of chanting meditation with Marsha Eger in the parish hall of Our Lady of Lourdes Church here in Windsor. No special singing ability or prior experience with chant or meditation is necessary.


Marsha has a Master’s Degree in Ritual Chant and  is a teacher and singer of chants of all world traditions. She teaches chant and meditation in Ireland, notably at the Benedictine Abbey of Glenstal, as well as in Europe and the U.S. Her description of the workshop is as follows:

“During this day-long workshop, a perfect break from the everyday busyness and stress of life, Marsha will discuss the benefits of chanting and meditation and will lead participants in chants from many of the world’s spiritual traditions. Chanting will be followed by periods of quiet or meditation, so that participants can experience the power of a chanting meditation practice. This in itself will create inner peace, but we will go more deeply. Throughout the day the focus of discussion, chants, poetry and prose, will be on inner peace, living calmly amidst the turmoil and stress of our lives. We will look at how both Western and Eastern traditions approach the idea and practice of creating inner peace as a state-of-being.”
