Mantra is a sanskrit word meaning, "a mystical formula of invocation or incantation", that is chanted or prayed. Sacred Chant refers to the growing genres of creative songwriting dedicated to mantra music. It is believed that chanting energizes the life force, quiets thought, and liberates the mind. It is considered an ancient sacred formula for transformation. Singing from the heart center is encouraged, as we joyfully weave in and out of mantra melodies.
The voice is a powerful and expressive instrument of our individuality, creativity, and spirituality. Vocal toning is the act of sounding tones and elongated vowel sounds with the intention for healing. It is an effective vocal meditation technique that aligns one to the deepest vibrations of being. It is calming, cleansing, and harmonizing for the body, mind, and spirit. Toning revitalizes and strengthens healing intentions through the conscious use of breath, mind, and voice. Group toning greatly enhances the intensity of the experience, offering a supportive and loving environment to achieve higher awareness, mutual healing, and a genuine atmosphere of oneness.
An exploration of the auditory senses is experienced with an array of sounds to ground and center the luminous body. The tranquil and reverberating resonances of tibetan and crystal bowls, bells and tuning forks, followed by the gong create an environment of safety and inner balance, as well as a release from everyday anxieties. The seamless blend of harmonic tones brilliantly combine as a sound meditation to reduce stress, calm the energy centers, and provide a deep relaxation response. The ringing tones of the Tibetan bowls, in particular, are believed to synchronize the activities of the left and right brain, inevitably restoring the mind to a state of spacious silence. All of the sound vibrations liberate through listening, encouraging a gentle and blissful return to a more natural state of being.
A mystical alloy of nickel-silver, the venerable gong commands one's essence with its rich and penetrating tones. It seems destined to cleanse the mind's palette to bring forth presence and stillness. Its power to overrule the psyche allows for the absence of thought ~ a refreshing state of being in our modern, fast-paced culture. The significance of the gong lies in its ability to enhance healing states of consciousness. Its earth vibrations grants listeners access to inner wisdom, inspired vision, and heightened intuition. These expansive sonic impressions fuel the emotional release necessary to reach new states of self-awareness and cosmic connectedness. Ultimately, the gong serves as a profound reminder of our truly mysterious and divine nature, and the all-encompassing oneness of our reality.
