During this November Monday Mini-Retreat, Tom will lead us in prayer with chants that he has been composing since 1989. He will guide us in discussion around chanting, its contemplative effects upon our mind, heart, and body; and he will share his own chant writing process and personal use for prayer. The chants Tom will be sharing with us are of a more contemporary nature and fitting for harmonization by several persons or a community of faith.
