Mantra Chant Intensive
Mantra Chant Intensive
Dive deep into the ocean of divine vibration!
A full weekend course that teaches the foundations of mantra meditation.
Covers Sanskrit pronunciation, mala use, root mantras for several deities, yoga philosophy, and more!
The Mantra Chant Intensive is intended to familiarize students with the basic theory and practice of mantra meditation as a personal, spiritual path. The full intensive requires 12 hours to complete, divided into 4 sessions of three hours each. The sessions are usually spread out across three days, allowing for plenty of down time in between for students to integrate the energies they are working with. The structure of the sessions begins with the physical elements of mantra yoga, then progressing to the intellectual, the energetic and beyond. It is necessary for the intensive to occur in a specific order to allow the students to absorb both the information and the vibrations in the most logical manner. The full weekend intensive provides complete guidelines for a functional mantra meditation practice, plus a philosophical background and advanced techniques. Students can also register for just the first half (sessions 1 and 2, Friday evening and Saturday afternoon) if they are unable to do the whole weekend, and these two sessions will provide the basics for a home daily practice.
The following is a general outline of the topics which will be covered in each session of the Mantra Chant Intensive:
What is a mantra? Deities and Bodhisattvas, daily practice, using a mālā, chanting mantras for Gaṇeśa, Sarasvatī, and the Great Compassion Mantra.
Learning the Sanskrit alphabet and correct Sanskrit pronunciation, chanting mantras for Lakṣmī, Tārā, and Śiva.
Śakti, the Cakras and Nādis, seed syllables/Bīja Mantras, theories about how and why mantra meditation works.
The Gāyatrī and Bhaiṣajyaguru Mantras, deeper levels of mantra practice and achieving long-term goals.
