ONLINE Chanting & Meditation Weekend
July 11-12 2020
Singing is a way for you to express your heart, but chanting is how you express your spirit. Yoga’s amazing technology includes chanting in Sanskrit, providing a direct route to inner bliss.
Spend the weekend immersed in the music of yoga. Plumb the heights of Consciousness and the depths of your own being, carried by the sound current hidden in the mantras we sing. This all happens at home, or wherever you’re sheltering at this time. We zoom in to you on your computer, tablet or phone, guiding and supporting you in the yogic process of finding your Self.
Each of these weekend retreats has a theme, created by Satguru Swami Nirmalananda. We use classical teaching stories to explain the chants as well as the inner experiences you are having.
Not only does this Divine Name resound into the heavens and beyond, it vibrates into the deepest dimensions of your own existence. For the One Reality, technically called “Paramashiva,” is the all-pervasive Reality, pervading everything outside of you as well as inside you yourself.
Learn the many names of Shiva, describing the cosmic realities both outside and inside. Experience the multi-dimensionality of your own being as you explore your own Shivaness.
From beginners through advanced yogis, you will be delighted at how easy this yoga practice is, called bhakti yoga, the “Yoga of the Heart.” Every step of the way, you’ll be filling your heart and home with these Divine sounds, through the sound of your own voice, blended with Swami Nirmalananda and our Ashram’s other swamis and chanters.
Location: ONLINE. When you enroll, your email will include a link for the Zoom connection, which you can use on your phone, tablet or computer. If you download the Zoom app, it's even easier.
