Drawing from the elements of nature allows us to feel and sense our power. We are nature, innately. Feeling the sun, the trees, the sky, the rocks, the water, we can only go deep inside to feel life’s current. The magic of life, the celebration of life, the freedom and connection of life.
The tantric nature of Hindu Ceremony brings us closest to our infinite wisdom. The veils are shattered and we are left with the presence of the Divine. Raw and exposed, anything is possible in these moments.
Earth, water, fire, air, ether; we use and acknowledge these 5 natural elements with Sanskrit Mantra to call upon the mystical and sometimes very tangible deities. Miracles happen, shifts happen, and we rest in the trust and flow of our own path.
Ceremony and Mantra practices are open and available to anyone, regardless of age, situation or religious belief. They are sacred tools we can all use to help merge our energies to the greater source of life, where there are no obstacles; free from judgement, pain and illness.
It is our birthright to live in peace.
The word “mantra” comes from the Sanskrit words “manas” (mind) and “trai” (to protect or set free from). Mantra simply means “to set free from the mind”.
Sanskrit is an energy-based language. Each letter and word carries a specific frequency, which when chanted, can heal, purify, protect, strengthen and calm. It is a powerful tool that can be applied to all life situations. With the proper guidance, the practice of mantra can change your life.
General categories of mantra assistance can include: Abundance/Prosperity, Relationships, Work/Career, Health, Protection and Addictive Behavior.
All situations are unique to the individual and are advised with divine grace and care.
You need not have any prior experience with yoga or other spiritual practices to benefit from the practice of mantra.
