Mahasukha will lead Soulful Singing in the mornings and Beauty of Mantra in the evenings. We’ll start each singing session with a vocal and body warm-up and then sing joyful and sacred songs from around the world, particularly African. All the songs are in part-harmony and are taught by ear. Mahasukha will teach the words, melodies, and harmonies to each song, building the parts up to one by one, and then bringing them all together. Mahasukha accompanies the singing on djembe which adds another uplifting dimension! Soulful Singing is a unique and rich combination of singing, drumming, and dancing! Food for the soul!

"I think it was probably the most beautiful and uplifting thing I have ever sung and I felt afterwards that I had had a deep spiritual experience, it was wonderful."
"For those like me, who think they can't sing, it’s an amazing fun & easy environment to discover the joy of singing & change that belief!”
"The silence after the mantra slowly died away was like nothing I've experienced. Thank you Mahasukha.”
“Mahasukha has a talent for bringing people together through singing in such a way that every one feels included, supported and encouraged whatever their ability or temperament. He inspires and builds confidence in others, allowing them to achieve and experience something beyond what they thought possible.”
"It was another incredible evening. Incredible is not strong enough a word. I experienced such a huge amount of strength, love and bliss. It was euphoric really but somehow a huge amount of power behind it.”
