People describe this singing experience as calming, heart-opening, healing, joyful and meditative.   Now we are creating a way for everyone to learn and enjoy these chants or start their own chanting circle with a complete kit: CD and booklet.

Here's our plan for the project:

  • 12 Sanskrit chants
  • 8 with original melody and/or lyrics
  • 4 well-known and popular chants
  • fully orchestrated
  • 62 minutes on CD

  • in same key as recording
  • guitar/piano chords
  • interpretation of chant
  • lyrics in Sanskrit
  • English translation

  • setting up the space
  • warm-up and centering exercises
  • tips on keeping the focus
  • getting your circle known

  • includes all lyrics in these chants
  • popular interpretations by Marina 

In collaboration with musician friends, Marina Rae leads a monthly "Sanskrit and World Chant" event in Victoria, BC, Canada. This sacred chant circle began in September 1999 and offers chants from different cultures.  Marina is a classically trained vocalist and improvisational dance teacher.  As a certified Yoga instructor at the Chakra Yoga Center in Victoria she trains Yoga teachers with her partner David.  She is a certified sound healer.  On this project she is collaborating with noted composer and pianist Karel Roessingh who is creating the accompaniment to Marina's melodies.
