Music is the yoga of sound. Singing has a benign effect on the physical and subtle bodies. Singing is an excellent method of soothing the nerves. Singing directs the emotions to a positive goal. Devotional singing can be sung in any language. Kirtan melts the heart, fills the mind with purity and generates harmony and divine love. He who chants the name of God forgets the body and the world. Sound, made up of vibrations, is energy. A Sanskrit mantra is a mystical energy encased in a sound structure. Mantra chanting is the most joyful technique towards connecting with God. The various musical notes have their own corresponding subtle channels (nadis) in the energy centers (chakras). Music vibrates these channels, purifies them and awakens the spiritual and psychic power dormant in them.

Each of these brilliant claims by Swami Sivananda perfectly describes Jyoti’s Finding Your Voice Mantra Meditation workshop. Course participants will breathe, move, sing and listen in new ways. They will activate and become friends with each of the 7 chakras through humming and singing, seed mantras, Indian Ragas, beautiful chants and easy nurturing songs. Each will have the opportunity to sing with the entire group and to experiment with singing and leading chants in small groups, while making deep and lovely connections with each other. During the course, as fear gives way to courage and the singer gives way to the witness, participants will discover why singing Kirtan, and even leading Kirtan, is so very uplifting and rewarding.
