Service Description

Sacred Sound - Mantra & Kirtan Last Friday of the month Happy Om Studio 6.30-8 p.m ​ The word Mantra is derived from two Sanskrit roots; manas ‘mind’ and tra meaning ‘tool’. Mantra can teach the mind to become increasingly absorbed in that which is most essential. The Upanishads tell us that mantras can lead us towards healing, inspiration, transformation & and self-realisation. Kirtan - devotional, melodic call and response chanting in Sanskrit.  ​ Calling upon the sacred sound to allow your body and mind to absorb them. Come and elevate yourself into a state of joy, unity and deep connection. ​ Benefits of Singing + Chanting...why do we do it?  Transformation of the Mind - Remembrance of Divine; Remembrance of Self - Purifies thoughts and alters habit patterns - Calms the mind - Upliftment of the Emotions - Purifies our feelings - repeating a mantra with feeling internally (like in japa) short circuits the cascade of negative thoughts and emotions bringing us back to the present moment ​  Physical Benefits of Group Singing - Regulated breathing - Kirtan as a form of Pranayama (by causing us to breathe deeply as we sing) -- increases the flow of energy / Prana throughout the whole system. - Singing releases endorphins and oxytocin (lessens feelings of depression, loneliness, even physical pain) - Brain is charged with positive energy - Soothes, recharges, and strengthens the nervous system, creating relaxation, releasing stress (lowers cortisol levels in the blood). - Vagus nerve stimulation - Social benefits - Connection to others; strengthen feelings of togetherness, intimacy - Vulnerability, sympathy P.S: I know what some of you are thinking ‘’I can’t sing’’ or ‘’I am not good at singing’’. Please get over this false illusion as you may be missing out a lot. We all have a voice– let’s use it. You may start by listening and then humming eventually progressing – like any other practice Booking is essential as spaces are limited. Open to absolutely everyone  / £ 12 A discounted rate is available, please email me.
