Facilitated by: Rachel McGarry, Devotional Chant Artist & Yoga Teacher (RYT-550), Owner of sanctuary.is
Join this Community of Practice where we explore and reflect on all areas of self-care and personal wellness, from the emotional, to the psychological, to the social, physical, and professional too. Participants will be introduced to a variety of practices and tools, hear from wellness professionals, and together, cultivate a strong social support network.
This month, we are excited to have Devotional Chant Artist, Rachel McGarry lead us in an Introduction to Mantra Practice. During this session, we’ll learn about the history of mantra recitation, the benefits of chanting, and explore a variety of mantras, their purposes, meanings, and uses through a combination of discussion and experiential learning – yes, we will be chanting together! All voices are welcome 🙂
Self-care is a personal journey and one that is ever changing. We want this to be a space where we can continually come together to reflect on our health and well-being, making them habitual priorities and not after-thoughts.
The success of a Community of Practice relies on shared reflection and the open exchange of ideas, experiences, and knowledge between members. Please come prepared to engage in meaningful conversation.
