Mantras & Mythology with Betsy Davis
February 2018 TBA - Stay tuned for update.
Want to dive into chanting, mantras and the fascinating mythology of India? There are rich philosophical and mythical underpinnings from the Hindu philosophy which are at the source of yoga. They are not necessarily held by all Hindus to be literal accounts of historical events, but are taken to have deeper, often symbolic, meaning. These stories have been given a complex range of interpretations. In this immersion learn some of the stories behind the deities that are a part of this rich mythology along with the mantras that correspond to each deity. Mantras are sacred syllables that are repeated as an invocation in meditation or as a prayer. We will work our way through the 7 chakras, or energy centers and correlate them to those areas, while also chanting a mantra for each of those deities and chakra centers.
