Jill PurceOvertone chanting is a spiritual and healing practice.  As a spiritual practice it does not require you to be able to “carry a tune,” but it’s used to “attune” the body with itself, with others who are chanting, and with the universe.  It is thought that the connection between the physical and the spiritual is the voice, and the vibration created in the body by overtone chanting “tunes” one with the universe.  While it has strong benefits as a solitary practice, when done in groups the experience is quite different and can be intense.  It is also used as a form of meditation.

I learned overtone chanting from Jill Purce in 2008; she learned it in Mongolia in the 1960s.  I would be delighted to share the techniques with those who are interested here at People’s.  Please contact me, Lynetta Carnes, at lynettacarnes@hotmail.com if you would like to participate.
