Back on campus for the first time since 2019, Omega’s Ecstatic Chant weekend is a chance to bring our voices together with some of the Western world's leading devotional singers, to reunite in community, and to nourish the soul with a rich tradition of musical prayer and meditation.
Known in Sanskrit as kirtan, devotional chanting awakens a longing in the heart for the experience of inner silence, boundless love, and intimate union with the divine. Kirtan emerged from Hindu traditions in India and is today practiced by millions of people around the world. The call-and-response, rhythmic quality of these unifying chants kindles an exhilarating, joyful mood.
Throughout the weekend we explore a variety of chants and chanting styles, interspersed with rejuvenating sessions of meditation, yoga, and story sharing.
As one of the most popular events at Omega for more than 15 years, Ecstatic Chant has helped open the hearts of the many who have attended. Get lost in the music, the power of community, and strengthen your connection to a higher power.
Bonus: Extend your stay and join us for the Special Labor Day Chant Session!
