The Art of Mantra Meditation

Sages of the yoga tradition say that life has two shores: one which we know here and now through mundane thoughts and feelings, and another which transcends everyday experience. Knowing the distant shore of life—a place related to one’s sense of awareness and being—is the goal of mantra meditation. But how do meditators turn attention inward when using a mantra, and what sorts of mantras might a student use for practice? Join Dr. Sovik to explore the role of a mantra in yoga meditation. Learn how concentration with a mantra can become an integrated part of meditation practice, linking body, breath, and mind.

This Livestream features an inspirational and informative lecture, Q&A session, and guided meditation with Rolf Sovik. Listen and practice along with us; heed the powerful wisdom that will transform your life!
