The Yoga of Sound: A Multidimensional Experience of Mantra, Rāga, and Kīrtan

This seminar is a multidimensional experience into the Yoga of Sound practices of mantra, rāga, and kīrtan. Sound unites us all, across culture, time, and space. Sound is our source and our means of creating self-knowledge and a vibrant, and full life. Through merging our being with the sound current, we not only come to know the magical landscape of our inner life, but we are better equipped to communicate our knowing with others... and, it's just a lot of fun!

Upcoming 4-Module Course with Dr. Kavitha Chinnaiyan:

Glorious Alchemy: Living the Lalitā Sahasranāma

In this 4-part course, we will systematically explore the Lalitā Sahasranāma (LSN) from the standpoint of practical applications in life and spiritual practice. Unlike other expositions of the beloved LSN, the emphasis here will be on cultivating and contemplating the fundamental principles of Śrīvidyā from a practical and applicable viewpoint. We will learn selected verses during the course, and a recording of the entire chant will be provided for self-learning. We will begin here with a brief history of the LSN and its developed View, which will become the basis for understanding all the other concepts of the path. In subsequent modules, we will gain an overview of the various aspects of the View through specific verses and their applications in day-to-day life.
