Mantra Yoga

A mantra is a sacred verse or sound. Symbolically it represents a spiritual experience.

For thousands of years, Hindu spirituality has understood the profound effects that sound has had on our well-being. Throughout history, yoga has incorporated sound to reduce stress, maintain health and invoke spiritual awakenings.

Vibration is the fundamental active force in the universe. Over time, specific chants and tones  have been passed down through generations that are meant to help heal the mind, body and spirit consciousness.

Mantras can help optimize the flow of energy within the body, enhancing emotional well-being through achieved peace and calmness. A mantra, as it relates to the yogic and Vedic traditions of India, is a Sanskrit phrase that encapsulates some higher vibration, and the essence of it’s sound. A mantra can be as simple as a single sound, or as complex as chanting a poem – but regardless of the length and complexity, the purpose is always the same – to help one bypass the mental chattering (vrtti) in order to reach a transcendent stat of awareness and self-realization. As the power of the mantras lie in their vibrations,
understanding the essential vibrational power of Sanskrit lends potency to ones practice of mantras and chanting.

Yingong

According to ancient wisdom, Gongs vibrate at the same frequency as the body, allowing the body to engage in self-healing. Because the tones and vibrations of the Gong do not follow a predictable pattern like other musical instruments, the mind cannot make sense of it and must give up, giving way to the Gong.

The sounds and vibrations of the Gong create a deep state of relaxation and meditation by altering the brain waves themselves. This is when the healing begins.

No water is involved in a Gong Bath. Rather, it is the sounds that wash over you as you recline in complete comfort. A guided meditation opens and closes the session.

The sounds of the Gong can be used to stimulate peaceful and creative solutions whiles the vibrations activate our body’s ability to heal at a cellular level.

Sound Healing

Sound  Healing is a physical phenomenon based on universal physical and biological principles. Sonic entrainment, where rhythmic vibrations of similar frequencies resonate in unison; can alter our energetic states, affecting our physiology, spirituality, emotional and mental condition.

The universal principles of sound mean you do not have to believe in Sound  Healing to benefit from sessions. Sound is heard not only with the ears but felt with every cell in our body. Combining sound with sacred intention, using instruments or voice specifically focused on vibratory frequency rate; aids healing by synchronizing the brain waves to achieve profound states of relaxation and restoring the normal vibratory frequencies that are in disharmony. Illness is regarded as a manifestation of disharmony in the body, an imbalance in the cells or specific organs.

Sound  Healing complements professional medical treatment and does not interfere with diagnosis and treatment by medical professionals. The goal of Sound Energy Healing sessions is to focus on healing the whole person not curing a specific health issue. What changes is your state of consciousness, which may create shifts in perspective that thereby affect a particular situation.
