What a beautiful concert.
I attended Snatam Kaur live at the Center for Spiritual Learning last night.
Many months ago, I bought the music CD – Grace, by Snatam Kaur Khalsa. I didn’t know that it was chanting music when I got it, I just loved the sound. Something about the sound drew me in. It’s hypnotic, beautiful and I resonate with it. It’s like it’s an Om that you can really believe in.
A few weeks ago, I found fliers at my local yoga studio advertising a local concert date for their current tour. Without really thinking, I bought tickets.
My excitement was tempered when I tried to find someone to go with me. Turns out, there are more than a few people that have very strong opinions based on sight, and sight alone. It took me days to find someone else with an open heart, open mind and willingness to try something different.
I got there early enough to get reasonably good general admission seats and watched as people arrived, but the place never filled up. The energy was good and the level of excitement in the room was pure and genuine.
My biggest surprise came at the instant Snatam Kaur started singing her first song. My eyes instantly filled with tears of joy. Wow, just thinking about it now brings them back again. It was a feeling that I didn’t want to fight or suppress. Later in the same song(chant), I looked around to see others clearing the tears from their faces.
It was a beautiful feeling of acceptance and connectedness. Clearly, there is Devine influence working though her as she gives into the music.
If you’re looking for a gentle way to experience a group of people that consciously gather to open their hearts, this would be a perfect place for you to visit.
Here is an example.
May you find grace in every moment of every day.
