Create a Happy, Healthy Brain through Singing

Singing dissipates feelings of loneliness, increases dopamine and oxytocin and benefits the brain, body and spirit in multiple ways. Singing together has been shown to be effective for assisting with the alleviation of social anxiety and depression. Studies show that chanting and group singing change the chemistry of the brain. Chanting is a calorie-free, drug-free approach to supporting your overall wellness. Learn to use the science of mantras to create a happy heart, a clear mind and a rejuvenated body.
