CHANT YOUR HEART OPEN!

"Chant Your Heart Open!" is a warmly embracing and participatory sound experience that offers healing songs and melodic mantras to open your heart and enliven your spirit. It's for everyone!

Led by Wendy DeMos on vocals and guitar, her songs deeply celebrate life and support the body and heart to go within.

“By repeating the mantras and uplifting lyrics, we increase their power,” she says. "When we express our souls with these sounds, we tune into specific frequencies of consciousness — like a radio tuning into different stations — and we vibrate at the frequency of love."

Chant Your Heart Open gatherings support community, healing, compassion, and joy, dedicated not only to our own uplifting but to healing Mother Earth and to our larger human family.

KRISTA NOVA

 

Krista  is based between Prince George and Vancouver, Canada, where she lives her heart’s calling to share the gifts of the Tantric Arts.

 

She coaches 1-on-1 clients and couples as well as teaching workshops, classes, and retreats to support her students in expanding beyond their limitations and in awakening their fullest potential.

 

In 2014, she co-founded the Heart of Tantra Festival, which occurs each summer in the Squamish Valley in British Columbia.

She typically spends winters in Rishikesh, India, sitting with her beloved teacher Prem Baba of the Saccha lineage and continuing her own inner work. She is currently committed to her training in Relational Somatic Therapy.

Krista’s vision is to create a deeply connected, open-hearted humanity. Her students often arrive unfulfilled in their mediocre sexual connections. However, under her guidance Krista teaches how to reach pure bliss: the highest state of meditative ecstasy.

                  APRIL OTTESEN
 

April knows that dance is transformative and that it can be therapeutic. She studied at SFU and practised various dance forms from ballet to modern to African

 

She says, "Through dance we transform our suffering and pain to connect with the divine within."

 

"Now, more than ever," April continues, "is the time of the rising Shakti -- the healing of the divine feminine energy of the planet and of us all.

 

We need to awaken our sacred sexual energy, our creative force, to become our most powerful and authentic selves."

 

It seems there has never been a more profound time to shake our blessed booties!
