Healing Sounds: Vowels as Mantras
Chakras are part of the subtle anatomy, a highly refined vibrational interface between Divine energy and the human body. Long known about in Ayurvedic medicine, knowledge of chakras is now entering mainstream medicine. Sound, particularly our own self-created sound, can affect the chakras. Vowels sounds have been considered sacred in many different traditions. In his book, Healing Sounds, Jonathan Goldman describes a system he developed working with specific vowel sounds in order to resonate the physical body and the chakras, bringing them into balance and alignment. In this workshop, Goldman will share this technique with participants so they may experience the embodiment of sacred sound within the body. The results of this will be the activation of the
chakras and the ability to experience higher levels of consciousness.
Explore techniques to resonate your physical body and your energy centers through sacred sound in order to create health, wellness and harmony.
Learn the scientific and spiritual basis of using sounds for healing and transformation,
