Sunday, October, 17th: 8:00 am to 10:00 am

Class Description:

 “One who desires the complete union of Yoga should give up all mental activity, and with an attentive mind concentrate on Nada alone.”-Yoga Pradipika 4. 93 

 

Through group singing, focused listening and guided meditation we will turn inward from the sounds of the external world to the sounds of our internal world and finally toward the eternal transcendent sound. This workshop will give direct instruction on the four levels of Nada Yoga.  

a) Vaikhari-vak: ordinary audible sound

b) Madhyama-vak: mental sound

c) Pashyanti-vak: visual sound

d) Para-vak: transcendent sound.

 

As we move step by step through these four levels we move from the distractions around us, our mind chatter, and our intrusive thoughts toward a transcendent sound.  By turning our single pointed attention to ever more subtle gradations of this sound we learn to quiet the mind and come to a place of peace.

Duration: 2.0 hour(s)



Class Notes:
 No prior experience or singing ability is necessary, only the willingness to use your breath / voice with others to make a beautiful sound.
