Chant Thomas has lived in wilderness settings for nearly 50 years diving deep into the Wild, embedded in the embrace of Divine Creation. Chant first encountered Sufis in San Francisco’s Golden Gate Park after an all-night Grateful Dead concert in December 1972. Sam’s tribe pulled him into Dances of Universal Peace and he wept with joy connecting with all those dancing eye gazers. Chant has lived at Southwest Sufi Community since 2020.
