An online, LIVE, 5 week course to discover, understand and experience the healing power of sacred sounds from the Yogic Tradition
This course introduces you to the sacred yogic sounds grounded in their origin texts. Throughout this course we take a deeper dive into some of Sanskrit’s well loved sounds and mantras, through the history, 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?
- how to correctly pronounce and chant these mantras.
- to 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 conscious awareness.
I have been practicing and teaching and sharing sacred sounds for almost fifteen years. I have a deep commitment to deepening my own understanding and experience of sacred sound. I believe, and have witnessed many times, the power of our own voice to heal, transform and remember our true nature.
Discovering the origins of these sounds through the teachings and philosophy of sanskrit and learning how to properly pronounce them has been a game changer for the depth of healing and awakening.
Pronouncing these sounds correctly has given honour back to the sounds that have so often been shared without this knowledge and precision. I have felt the difference in my own practice and have witnessed it in my clients and students also.
I am so passionate about the power of sacred sound as learned through the origin lineage and feel honoured to be offering this course to share the power of this work.
Many thanks for a beautiful and deeply healing six-week course.
The sessions were a perfect balance between theory and practical and I was able to deepen my understanding and feeling of both Sanskrit healing sounds and the ‘om’.
Just wanted to thank you for a wonderful experience this evening. I really feel I’m in the right place and doing exactly the right things in my life.
I listened to myself this evening as I didn’t need to go anywhere else other than the om. That was just what myself needed and nothing else. What an amazing place to be just needing Om 🕉
I have been watching [the replay] today and sounding the bija mantras – I love this practice! Your rendition has far more resonance than when I have done them previously and it really does feel like a bell being struck.
I have found the course to be really deeply nourishing and reaching into parts of me that I don’t usually access.
I took Original Sound Medicine to learn about chanting. I loved listening to the chants we studied and the root of the chants. There is so much I don’t know about in the world and I appreciated the safe surroundings you held us in. Many knew more than me in class but that did not matter. I felt a true sense of community.
I felt the rhythm of the chants through the zoom and the energy of the class was welcomed into my heart. It was great to experience what you love to teach and how well you teach it.
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.
Each session will be live over zoom and will also be recorded so you can catch up if you can’t make all the live sessions. You can also use the recordings to review the teachings and practices in between the classes.
