Nada And Kirtan Retreat

Its a 4 weekend retreat (8 days)

Sound is sacred. Sound is powerful. It connects us, heals us and expands our hearts. Mantra chanting opens us up to sound on another level and has an enigmatic transformative power. It is an ancient key for unlocking the mysteries of the entire universe.

Mantra has been described as a sacred utterance, or numinous sound. The earliest mantras took birth in India over 3,000 years ago and were composed in Vedic Sanskrit. The mantras that we chant are in Sanskrit–a sacred language of ancient India that is no longer spoken. In Sanskrit ‘man’ means mind and ‘tra’ means ‘to free from’. So mantra is literally a tool to free the mind. With the right sounds, you can align yourself with the vibrations that foster health, happiness, and unity. 

Aadhya Yogshala believes that the most powerful way out of the darkness is by finding the light inside us, through the practice of meditation. They offer mantra music as a portal to inner stillness, silence, and peace, and they offer musical gatherings as a means of heart-centered connection with others across the globe–an antidote to the increasing sense of alienation from each other. We are bringing this weekend retreat for them who want to experience this power of sound and mantra chanting.

In the Vedic tradition, sound vibration is known as Nada. In the practice of Nada Yoga, sound is used not only to restore physical and mental well-being but also as a path to spiritual awakening. Nada Yoga divides sound into external sounds, Ahata, and internal sounds, Anahata.

External sounds are perceived through the ears and Nada Yoga can be as simple as listening to non-vocal music while gently focusing on the individual notes. You can listen to the different notes within the music of nature—birds singing, rain falling, or the wind through the trees. Or you can chant sacred mantras such as OM or AUM with the focus on each individual letter.

Internal sounds are perceived through the Anahata (heart) chakra. Each human body has its own unique sound or vibration, which is sacred to that individual. By regulating the breath, with the attention turned inwards, and closing the ears with the fingers, you can begin to listen in on your own inner sound
