Yoga of Sound Retreat

The Way of Nāda Yoga

dhrupad / mantra / ecstatic music

Listen deeply, 

sing heartfully, 

free your voice.

 

 

yoga means union, melting our individuality with the cosmic Self.

nāda refers to the primordial sound, out of which everything originates.

nāda yoga is a path of union through connection with the primordial sound. 

 

 

Why?

 

The aim of this retreat is to provide a safe and healing vibrational field so you can experience the breakthrough you need at this point of your journey. We will be exploring in depth some of the most powerful sound-based (nāda) meditation tools: listening and singing practices that have been passed on through millennia in the context of the yogic tradition.

 

Together, we will unveil the restorative and evolutionary power of vibration, the most accessible and effective support for meditative absorption. We will walk the way of sound, a journey towards the expansion of consciousness and the opening of the heart.

 

What does it offer?

 

The core focus of this retreat is to bring about a unique opportunity to experience meditation through the ancestral techniques of deep listening and mindful singing. For this, the participants will receive an in-depth introduction to the foundations of nāda yoga and, most of all, lots of practice to have a real taste of what it is to walk the way of sound meditation.

 

The food and various herbal drinks and aromas accompanying the practice will be consciously chosen from an ayurvedic perspective, in order to provide harmonization and serenity for body and mind, and, in turn, enhance our sound and healing practices. The venue, surrounded by fields and forest, is a peaceful abode in which silent nature walks can also be made. With over 15 years of experience in the field of sound and yoga, Victor Sakshin will be sharing some of the most precious fruits of his own journey and daily practice.
