A Five Week course to discover the keys to unlocking, understanding and experiencing sacred sounds from the Yogic Tradition
This five-week course introduces you to the sacred yogic sounds grounded in their origin lineage. Throughout this course we take a deeper dive into some of Sanskrit’s well loved sounds and mantras, through the philosophy, pronunciation and deeper teachings found there. We will look at the oṁ bīja mantra, gāyatrī mantra and discover the deeper truths and power of these mantras.
So many times, we have heard the oṁ sound chanted (and written) in so many different ways – but what does the sacred texts, the upanishads tell us about this sacred syllable, and why do we chant it? what does the oṁ stand for? what is the meaning of the oṁ symbol (ॐ) and what can it teach us about ourselves and how does it develop our ultimate conscious awareness?
Throughout this course we will take you through a journey to truly understand and realise the benefits of some of the most sacred and well-known sacred sounds, oṁ mantra, bīja mantra, gāyatrī mantra.
You will learn:
- how to correctly pronounce and chant these mantras.
- You will understand the how and why we chant these sounds
- connection to the senses,
- connection to the elements
- the realms of human existence
- connection to the one awareness.
I have been learning and teaching these sacred sounds for almost fifteen years and it has taken me on many interesting journeys. It is said that when the student is ready the teacher will come and I have had the privilege of working with so many amazing teachers in this field, each deepening my knowledge, connection and understanding. This year, I have been blown open having worked with a Sanskrit scholar and yogi, I discovered depths of knowledge that opened the door into a deeper experience that I never thought possible.
I am so passionate about the power of sound as learned through the origin lineage that I am drawn to share it with you.
This course is for you if you have ever been touched by the power of sound. Whether you are a yoga teacher, yoga student or simply curious how the utterance of human sound can relax us, heal us and ultimately liberate us.
