  “Drumming can induce a natural “high” by increasing Alpha brain waves.
When the brain changes from Beta waves (concentration) to Alpha waves,
you feel calm and relaxed.”
~ Christiane Northrup M.D.
  Did you know drumming makes you smarter? The rhythmic energy synchronizes both hemispheres of your brain, so logical left & intuitive right pulsate together, making the inner guidance system stronger by using the whole brain.


Chanting with Nellie: Sound as Stairway to Heaven

Nellie Lauth

Friday Oct 11, 7:15 – 8: 15 pm.

Join us for a powerful hour of chanting and meditation led by former Buddhist nun Nellie Lauth, MSW. We will sit on chairs in a candle lit circle, singing chants from multiple traditions. Regular attenders say, “Nellie blows out the roof. When she chants with us, a portal opens to another dimension.”

Nellie has worked with prisoners, AIDS patients, addicts, and dementia sufferers. But she credits her time in a Buddhist convent in India with teaching her true compassion. Tibetan monks brought her childhood Christianity into its fullest expression, she says.

Nellie has authored several books including “Buddhist Footsteps in a Christian Heart” and her latest, “Now Watch my Rising.”  For more information see her website:

Important: We’re on the second floor of the Graham Lee Shopping Center. Security Entrance is at left end of shops. Press 24 at the door. Someone will buzz you in. Please arrive early to avoid disturbing the chant.

Krishna das

Chant the Names with us via ZOOM. Join us for a chanting session.

Every Saturday morning at 9 AM, and the 4th Saturday Evening of the month from 7 pm – 8:30 PM*

 Katherine Krupka facilitates us in chanting to the recorded music of Krishna Das. For details and RSVP, click on our Meetup link here:   

Krishna Das was a rising rock star when a trip to India ripped his heart open and changed his life. Now he sings and teaches about how chanting the thousand “names” or qualities of God can bring forth those qualities in you. Join us in trying out this powerful spiritual practice of chanting to the recorded music of Krishna Das, the “Pavoratti of Kirtan.”

We will be facilitated by Katherine Krupka, a diplomat-turned-naturopath who has studied with Krishna Das and had a similar life-changing experience.

If you have gone as far as you can go with the more mental forms of self help or spiritual practice, chanting the Names could open new possibilities for you. No belief systems required.

Suggested donation $10.

ON SATURDAY, JANUARY 30TH, AT 7 PM:  Rev. Katherine Krupka will introduce us to many people’s chant, “Om Nama Shivaya” by Krishna Das.
