The practice of Vedic chanting is called adhyayanam, meaning ‘that which takes you inside’. This term comes from the words adhi (inside, the light in the heart) and ayanam (to move towards). It is a form of svādhyaya, the process of developing self-awareness and understanding.
The practice of adhyayanam involves listening to the teacher chanting the mantra-s and then doing your best to repeat the sounds exactly as you heard them. This process hones your ability to listen in a subtle way, to the teacher and to yourself.
Sound can penetrate to the most subtle aspects of your being, to create positive vibrations at the level of the emotions and personality. Chanting Sanskrit words engages the mind through concentration, and as you practice more and more, your breath capacity increases. As you begin to find your voice, your posture will naturally improve, in order to accommodate the sound that is moving through you. This sums up Vedic Chanting.

10 participants maximum.
