Adi Sankaracharya’s Guru Ashtakam April 4 weeks

“The lotus feet of the Guru are a mystical source of grace and illumination and symbolize the state of oneness with the Absolute in which the Guru is established. By keeping our mind focused on the Guru and on the Guru’s teachings, we open ourselves to receive the Guru’s grace. In this way, we can discover and become immersed in the fullness of that state of oneness within our own being. On the occasion of Gurupurnima, reciting and reflecting on the Guror Aṣṭakam are excellent ways to honor Shri Guru, who dwells within us as our very own Self.”

Wednesdays 4pm CET / 3pm UK / 7am PST 

April 7, 14, 21, 28 

50 euros for all 4 classes

Fine Tune Your Śanti Mantra Chanting March 24 & 31

for those that have studied with me or are familiar with the śanti mantras below but would like to deepen and clean up their practice. 

Sahana Vavatu 
Asato Ma 
Śam no Mitra 
Bhadram Karnebhih 

When you experience sadness, confusion or challenges, Śanti mantras can be a wonderful way to refresh and release any residual that mind and body may be carrying. Each of the three śantis chanted (peace) represent and clear the disturbance from the 3 realms (Tāpatraya)…  

Ādhyātmika — the disturbances caused by internal factors. Stemming from the self.  

Ādhibhoutika — the disturbances caused by physical forces such as earthquakes etc. 

Ādhidaivika — the disturbances caused by Karmic factors or unseen forces from the Divine.  

Two Wednesday’s at 4pm CET / 3pm UK / 7am PST  

March 24th & 31st ~ 40 euros for 2 classes and one 30 minute private session to review the chant of your choice.

Ganesha Pancharatnam Class July 27 1:30pm

I will be leading a class on the Ganesha Pancharatnam from 1:30p-2:45pm GMT (London time) on Monday, July 27, 2020

We will review and discuss one of the most chanted Stotras throughout India for the beloved Lord Ganesha (overcomer of obstacles and the God of new beginnings). This is R. Saraswathi Jois’ favorite chant. We spent so many years chanting this together. As I learned from her I will share with you along with some philosophy and of course we will chant it together.

I wish to make the class accessible to all so I will keep the cost at 10 usd.

It will be the last chanting class I will teach until September, once my own studies are complete.

It is a joy and honor to share the teachings of my teachers with you.

I hope to see you this Monday!

Chanting has proven to create many incredible benefits in both our physiological and psychological state and has long been combined with yogic practices.

These mantras (vedic hymns) carry specific vibrations, which, when practiced in a very precise manner improve physical, mental and emotional health while bringing us into the present moment.

During these 4 weeks we will be covering…

An Overview and History
Chanting and it’s Benefits
Rules of Sanskrit Pronunciation
Understanding Roman transliteration of Devanagari
Chanting as a Pranayama
Shanti Mantras or “Peace Mantras
Stotras, Mantras, and Japa. What and why?
Daily Stotras
Personal feedback for chants that we study weekly
and of course, we will chant many shlokas together

By the end of the four weeks, you should have a good foundation for your personal practice.

We will chant for the well being of each other, our earth, and to the divine.

To share chanting is to share an experience of silence through listening, a process of healing, and a link with nature, the deeper self, and the divine. ~ T K V Desikachar

The classes will be 65 USD for all 8 classes. (I have tried to make the price as accessible to everyone as possible).
