WINTER SOLSTICE CHANTING THEME:“The Cosmic Mother/Father is dreaming us in and out of perceptual reality”
We will be Chanting at the Center For Peace
on Friday December 21st and Saturday December 22nd
Friday, December 21st from 1-2 pm

We will join the call from the House of Mica Peace Sound Chamber in New York to create a stream of continuous chanting for peace across the world on the Winter Solstice.
This annual event has been organized by Rick and Elisa Cotroneo at the House of Mica for about twenty years. Peace chambers, groups and individuals from around the world will be joining in this annual event by chanting for an hour.
THEME FOR THIS YEARâ€™S CHANTING:
“The Cosmic Mother/Father is dreaming us in and out of perceptual reality”
We are being woven in and out of perceptual reality. The sacred sound associated with Dream Weaver is Ca- Ahh-Neh pronounced â€śCaâ€ť as in car; â€śAahâ€ť as in ah; and â€śNehâ€ť as in nay.
We will be chanting the sacred sound of Dream Weaver as well as the sounds of the directions, the elements and the seasons as we join all those around the world who are chanting for peace.
The sacred sounds for the elements and seasons can be found here.
CHANTING THE VOWEL SOUNDS
By chanting at the Solstice we are honoring the turning of the seasons in a sacred manner. Beautiful Painted Arrow has urged us to chant the vowel sounds as part of our ceremonies for peace. We have chanted the vowel sounds during solstice chanting for more than 10 years and we are happy to chant the vowel sounds again this year with renewed vigor. Beautiful Painted Arrow teaches that the vowels are the power behind the language and he shares the following meaning for each vowel:
a pronounced "ah" as in ma = purification or to cleanse
e pronounced as "eh" as in pet = placement and relationship
i pronounced "ee" as in tree = awareness
o pronounced "o" as in grow = innocence or teachability
u pronounced as "u" as in true = carrying or being carried
