Good for the soul. Mantras are powerful sound vibrations which are capable of transforming energy at all levels of creation. We'll be blending original songs, mantras and meditation. The age-old tradition of mantra chanting is a valuable tool on the spiritual path. It can be used by anyone looking for inner peace and joy, regardless of their belief system. It is a powerful way of connecting with the Divine, and can help reach a deep state of bliss. See ChantYourHeartOpen.com for more information. $20 in advance / $25 at the door To purchase a ticket, see http://www.yogawest.ca/events-retreats/ Come celebrate life through sound and silence. Why Chant Mantras? Mantra, as used in Kundalini yoga, is a specific technology that uses sound vibration to affect and elevate consciousness, as well as to heal on all levels. It is a specific combination of syllables mainly used from an ancient language (Ghurmuki), which is based heavily on the Naad, or science of sound. These sounds or vibrations tune, quieten and focus the mind. These specific combinations of syllables, words, phrases and rhythms hold power in their meaning and sound current to create different healing effects in the body and also to elevate consciousness. By repeating them, we increase their power. When we vibrate these sounds, we are tuning into specific frequencies of consciousness - a bit like a TV or radio tuning into different channels. The universe reflects back to us what we vibrate out. If we vibrate and tune into a frequency of healing and abundance, then that is the vibration with which we fill ourselves. Chanting mantras, like all meditations, can help reduce stress, heal on all levels, and bring and/or maintain peace, calm and joy into our lives. It can help us raise our own vibrational frequency by filling us with positive vibrations, and can also help us to be more present, live in each moment, and focus on what is important in our lives.
