Chants by Darlene Franz

Darlene Franz

Darlene Franz is a freelance oboist, music educator, singer, and chant composer residing in Seattle, Washington.  Since 2006 she has facilitated music and attention sessions at Wisdom Schools and other retreats, workshops, and conferences throughout the United States, as well as in Canada, Europe, and New Zealand. 

Her work with groups cultivates the expansion of embodied attention and presence.  Through active and meditative practices based in sacred mantric interspiritual chant, both accomplished and reticent singers can discover grounded, centered, whole awareness while singing together.
