Healing With Mantra

I am no stranger to cancer; 11 years ago, I faced down breast cancer. But when the Big C comes to visit your child (in my case my eldest son, a young adult), it’s another story. Fear. Denial. Helplessness. There is nothing worse for a mother than knowing that her child is in harm’s way.

 

Sushmuna by Guru Shabad Singh

Guru Shabad Singh is a legend in the Kundalini Yoga chant world. His extensive discography is full of incredible mantra music created to bring you deep into the sound current and into the blissful state of simran.

 

Chanting So Purkh For My Sons

I’m chanting So Purkh again for 40 days. It’s something I do every so often as the mother of three sons. Chanting mantras makes me feel powerful when I’m feeling powerless; when I’m feeling that I can’t heal my heart, or solve my sons’ problems, or guarantee that my kids will be safe.

 

The Sound of Kundalini Yoga Music

I am married to a classical musician, and I studied piano for more than a decade, so I was familiar with the power of music long before I met up with Kundalini yoga. When I first began practicing yoga, I found that music could uplift or distract my practice. I began with Vinyasa yoga and in many classes we practiced in silence. In some classes teachers played beautiful music with Sanskrit chants and in others, I heard music by popular artists. But a huge musical surprise awaited me with my first Kundalini yoga class!
