An evening of singing with others from the heart, opening to an experience of connection through your voice.
ChantWave is a practice of singing to remember who we are when we 'get out of the way'. The result can be a feeling of connection to the source of life, to ourselves, and to each other. The practice of vocalizing chants and songs of sacred or healing lyrics, to shift from a 'head consciousness' to a 'heart consciousness', is an ancient tradition with contemporary interpretation.
“Michael has created a most accessible journey. All we have to do is jump on board and take the ride.” -Deva Premal and Miten, Recording Artists
ChantWave provides participants with a sense of peace within themselves while feeling connected within a community of individuals.
Hosted by Inner Harmony founder Michael Stillwater, ChantWave with Gary Malkin (piano) and guest musicians to lead us in an evening of magical singing.

The 'wave' in ChantWave refers to the way in which feelings may be less restricted, and to an energetic dynamic encompassing both the shadows of our soul and the radiance of our light. ChantWave is also part of a greater 'wave' sweeping the world in the early 21st century, as more people are finding the power of chant to be undeniably healing and heartfully appealing.
The Power of the Chant
The word 'enchantment' has its roots in 'chant'. Everytime we sing a repeated phrase, we are 'enchanting' or entraining ourselves. Writers of radio jingles know this fact, and are skilled in creating indelible melodies that we can't get out of our head. Thus it's important to be aware of what we are chanting and choosing to align with those words- or not.
