6p - 7p Meditation - Unity Center of Tulsa Sanctuary
The prayers are recited in the traditional overtone chanting, each monk singing a full chord of three notes - something Western musicians thought was impossible until encountering this practice in Tibet! The prayers are often accompanied by symbolic hand gestures, cymbals, drums, horns and flutes.
