Chanting is a form of meditation that opens the doors of the heart, and focuses attention on the present moment, the place where the Divine Presence can be experienced. Whether wordless or with words, repetition of the chant helps clear the mind of chatter, and connects us to each other and the Divine. When we sing with others, we are connected by and within the music. In chanting, we sing a melody multiple times, giving us time to enter the chant as its melody (and words) enter us. Allowing some quiet between the chants or niggunim enables us to absorb the energy of the chant.
