Yellow Bell Mantra Choir Ft Lauderdale "Mantra, Gong Meditation / Veggie Pot ...
25 Jun 2014 at 12:19am
Join the Yellow Bell Mantra Choir to sing Mantra with intention, bliss out during the Gong Meditation, enjoy a Veggie Pot Luck Feast with the community, and relax afterwards while a special concert is offered. The Fort Lauderdale event is on the 2nd Sunday every month. Please wear something Yellow for the Third Chakra Mantra work this month! PLEASE MESSAGE RICHARD BROOKENS FOR ADDRESS AND DIRECTIONS! Suggested $20 love donation! No one turned away for lack of funds. This will be the Third of a seven month series focusing on the Tantric Seed Syllable and mantra for one Chakra each month. This third month of the series in Ft Lauderdale we will focus on the Third (Solar Plexus) Chakra. This Chakra, known as the Manipura Chakra in Sanskrit is the source of personal power, self control, self-esteem, and will power. Physically it governs digestion, mentally it governs personal power, emotionally it governs expansiveness, and spiritually it governs all matters of growth. The color yellow is associated with this Chakra so we ask you to wear some shade of that color if you can. We will be learning and singing an original arrangement of the Mantras associated with this Chakra: Ram is the Tantric seed syllable we will use as our base and a short mantra in harmony with the seed syllable will also be offered. In addition we will have another full arramgement of a Mantra that is associated with this Chakra! So many have enjoyed it in past months, that we will also be sure to include another Balinese Gong, Tibetan Bowl Meditation. Very powerful! After the Meditation, we are happy to offer a special free 3rd Chakra juice blend from Prashanti Yoga! The next third of the evening we will share the Veggie Pot Luck and conversation. The pot luck has been out of this world every month! Please bring something to share with others! There will also be a short concert after dinner led by Richard Brookens featuring several special guests. The Yellow Bell Ensemble is led by Richard Brookens, (Vocals, Tablas. Udus, bamboo and Alto Flutes, Soprano Sax, Balinese Gongs). The Yellow Bell Ensemble that accompanies the Mantra usually includes Violin, Cello, and Acoustic Bass, percussionists, female and male vocalists, acoustic guitar, and harmonium. Bring a friend or two and something to sit on - a pillow, or a blanket and a veggie dish to share. Don't forget the color yellow when you get dressed to come to this special evening! If you can afford to support our efforts financially it would be greatly appreciated. The new Yellow Bell CD "Inner Peace (it's up to us)" will be available along with other Yellow Bell CDs. Great for Yoga, Meditation, Massage and Relaxation. Check them out in the Music Store here on FB at Richard Brookens/Yellow Bell Music!
