Mantra Mela

A YEAR-LONG ONLINE WORKSHOP SERIES

Make the Transformative Power of Mantra Part of Your Life

Join us for an introductory dive into nine Sanskrit mantras over the course of a year.

These workshops are for you if you are new to mantra, or if you already love chanting mantra, but would like to refine and deepen your practice.

Each session, we will chant the mantra together in the simple and accessible Vedic style. Depending on the mantra, we may also chant them devotionally, as Kirtan.

The sessions are standalone so come to as many or as few as you like.

WE WILL EXPLORE

  • The meaning and application of the mantra
  • The Sanskrit pronunciation, tongue positions and their physical and subtle effects
  • Understanding and reading Sanskrit transliteration
  • How to establish and navigate a mantra japa practice
  • Further aspects of mantra yoga for health and personal development

MANTRA YOGA

The workshops are spaced just over 40 days apart. This is to give you an opportunity to follow the workshop with a 40 day mantra japa practice, if you wish. However, this is in no way obligatory and you are welcome to attend the workshop simply to explore the mantra.

Tuesdays 6.45pm – 8.00pm UK
Online with Zoom

£12 per session

ABOUT THE TEACHER

I originally came to the practice of mantra without a yoga background, but as a lifelong lover of language, sound and music and with an abiding interest in wellbeing and personal transformation.
