Meditation Using the So’ham Mantra


A mantra provides a focal point and a resting place in meditation. The universal mantra so’ham (pronounced “so-hum”), meaning “I am That which I am,” can be used by every meditator and leads to clarity, peace, and self-realization. In this guided meditation led by Rolf Sovik, use breath and mantra awareness to awaken your inner observer—wise, pure, and free—and emerge with a renewed sense of lasting joy and a true self within.
