A Workshop with Sri Shyamji Bhatnagar
The Yoga & Meditation Center of Montclair, 292 Bloomfield Ave., will hold a workshop on April 14, from 2 to 5pm, on “How Mantras and Sound Effect the Microchakras for Deeper Meditation,” led by Sri Shyamji Bhatnagar, founder of InnerTuning systems and the Chakra Institute. The fee is $50. Participants will learn how mantras are created with matrikas, sounds of the chakras, and will spend time chanting and listening to and absorbing the profound vibrations created by Shyamji’s voice.
A world-renowned master of Naada Yoga who refers to his work as “the homeopathy of sound,” Shyamji is the author of Microchakras: InnerTuning for Psychological Well-Being and has played the tambura with Ravi Shankar, Pran Nath and Amir Khan. As a child, Shyamji studied with a guru who taught him the most profound aspects of yoga – the yoga of subtle breath (Svar Yoga) and the yoga of subtle sound (Naada Yoga), setting the stage for his discovery that each of the classical seven chakras contains 21 microchakras that influence our feelings, thoughts, and behavior.
When specific mantras, or Sanskrit sounds, are chanted using proper breathing, the pure vibration of the mantras clears the blockages and creates space, openness, and inner peace. Other healing effects of mantra and the practice of Naada Yoga include establishing new connections among neurons, strengthening the immune system, integrating the left and right hemispheres of the brain and liberating the mind from false identities.
