Evening of Sacred Music

20160924_194655Heart opening, uplifting, and heart warming sacred music filled the zendo on Saturday evening. The beautiful sounds had folks moving and singing with the music from Sufi, Yoga, Buddhist, Sikh and other traditions. Warmth and joy radiated from everyone by the end.

Heartfelt thanks to Tam, Bachan and Natania for their gifted playing. Thanks also to Warren who contributed a First Nations song of his own.
