"Chant is a path for all of us who lead with our hearts, who are determined to seek out the truth that is buried deep beneath the ground of our lives, and who have made a commitment to live that truth, from moment to moment, breath to breath, 'one little bit at a time.'"
--from the Introduction
Chant is a meditative practice that fully engages the body, heart and mind, and facilitates healing and expansion of consciousness.

She illuminates the usefulness, benefits and blessings of chant by:
- Teaching you the theory and foundations of chant--its relation to beauty, pleasure and the deep wisdom buried in sacred texts
- Providing--for the first time--complete musical notations for many of her popular chants and practical instruction for how to use them to cultivate self-awareness and love.
