Online Mantra Mornings

Online event

Join Sara on zoom every Monday morning from 7:00-7:30 a.m. for mantra meditation. This is a time and space to check in with one another and to dive into the practice of chanting Sanskrit mantras. Sanskrit is the ancient language of India, said to be over 6,000 years old. This ancient language is especially unique in its ability to carry the precise vibration of the word it is describing.
The word mantra can be broken down into two parts: “man,” which means mind, and “tra,” which means transport or vehicle. In other words, a mantra is an instrument of the mind—a powerful sound or vibration that you can use to enter a deep state of meditation. Ancient mantras were formulated to create specific outcomes.

“Like a seed planted with the intention of blossoming into a beautiful perennial, a mantra can be thought of as a seed for energizing an intention. Much in the same way you plant a flower seed, you plant mantras in the fertile soil of practice. You nurture them and over time they bear the fruit of your intention.” Deepak Chopra

There are many health benefits of this ancient practice, such as its ability to help free your mind of background chatter, calm your nervous system and boost immunity.

No experience needed. Come just as you are.
