Nada Yoga:

The Power of Mantra

2 or more classes - 5.5hrs 

This workshop offers a deep understanding of the ultimate supremacy of sound; the all pervading vibratory essence of the universe.

Words hold the power to name and associate meaning to everything within our comprehension. As such, we approach word, thought, & mantra as Paravak: Shakti as supreme speech. 

From this understanding of the power of each word, we can begin to appreciate the abstract power the Bija (Seed) Mantras of Sanskrit, including Om.

This workshop explores mantra as a tool to focus, purify, worship & evoke. A basic outline of the major deities of the Indian Pantheon are given along with their mantras. We also discuss Bhakti Yoga, the mystical power of music, the importance of opening the Vishuddha chakra.

The first class of this workshop contains a long session of discussion. The second class is a sample of what may be extended out into several classes of mantra practice with relevant discussion.
