Harmony Unleashed: Japa Meditation Mastery Experience
12 WEEKLY SESSIONS, Sundays, 10:30am – 12:15pm ET
Join us for “Harmony Unleashed: Japa Meditation Mastery Experience,” a 12-week immersion into powerful techniques for focusing the mind and for harnessing the body/mind’s subtle energies in completing the yogic path of self-transformation.
Japa refers to the recitation of mantras and is a significant aspect of Yoga practice. This practice involves repetitively chanting the same mantra, whether it is a single syllable like “om” or a sequence of mantric sounds, such as “om namo narayanaya.” Silently chanting the practice makes it more powerful, yet it can be vocalized when needed, especially if a student is fatigued or requires variety to sustain concentration.
Throughout this course, you’ll have the opportunity to explore Japa meditation, pranayama, kirtan, tratak (candle gazing), likhita japa (writing mantra), and savasana (relaxation) in engaging classes that resonate with your unique spiritual path. You will even receive individualized guidance on selecting your own personal mantra and learn about the powerful process of mantra initiation.
By joining today, you’ll personally immerse yourself in the transformative power of these spiritual exercises, actively practicing the techniques within the supportive class environment. This is an invitation to make these practices a personal part of your journey.

This course is open to both new students and returning participants due to the integration of practical sessions with theory. In the theoretical sessions, new topics are continually introduced, providing additional benefits for those who have previously taken the course.
