Harmony Unleashed: Japa Meditation Mastery Experience

Rukmini Chaitanya

12 WEEKLY SESSIONS, Sundays, 10:30am – 12:15pm ET 

Course Description:

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.

Patanjali emphasizes that the yogic journey is fueled by practice and dispassion. Notably, the Sanskrit term for practice—abhyasa—translates to “repetition.” It is through repetition that we form either positive or negative habit patterns.


Throughout the course, you’ll: 

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. 

Join ‘Harmony Unleashed: Japa Meditation Mastery’ to unlock the full potential of your unique spiritual practice today. Reserve your place for this profoundly personal and life-changing experience that harmonizes ancient wisdom with modern living.

"The Japa course was a huge surprise for me. I thought I already “knew” a lot about Japa since I’ve practiced it for years; however, I was so wrong! Rukmini Chaitanya has an incredible ability to delve into the depths of any topic (I’m taking several of her classes) and, not only make them understandable, but enjoyable and entrancing. Where she comes up with the various aspects that she explores is beyond me. Though I never make the live classes, she goes out of her way to make us “late viewers” feel part of the class. She manages to integrate chanting and meditation and content seamlessly. It is obvious that she lives what she teaches. In short, she is an inspiration to me. During these difficult times, she has served as a lifeline to my spiritual life, and I will forever be grateful to her."
- Mary Rice
"I have been taking Rukmini Chaitanya’s Bhakti and Japa meditation class for almost a year now. The teachings on Bhakti were new to me and have opened up new possibilities in my meditation practice. Rukmini Chaitanya’s teaching style is clear, accessible, humble and full of new insights and wisdom."
- Tink McDevitt
