Learn how mantras act as forces for healing and how they serve as supports for collecting and concentrating the energies of the mind.

We will explore the meaning of various mantras used in the Himalayan tradition and learn to cultivate a deeper relationship with the mantra you use for meditation through japa practice (mantra repetition).

In this 8 hour digital course, you will:
  • Gain a clearer understanding of the role of mantra in your meditation practice
  • Learn the subtleties of japa practice and discover how mantras become spontaneous outpourings of sound
  • Discover which mantra might be appropriate for you and, if you like, receive a personal mantra for your practice
  • Explore the role of mantra meditation to assist in purifying your mind and sharpening your intellect
