Meditative Powers of Sound and OM

Many thousands of years ago, when ancient sages entered the deepest state of silence, they experienced a sound which they called the ‘sound of silence’. They realised that the closest sound to this silence, which a human body’s vocal system can produce, is the sound of OM. OM chanting is a journey from the gross to the subtle, and ultimately to the subtlest aspect of reality. It is a journey from a noisy mind to a still mind. It is a movement towards stillness and it is an art of turning the gaze inward. In this half day workshop, we will experience for ourselves the meaning and significance of the mantra OM and how it can take us to a deep space of inner stillness, which is amplified in the collective presence of each other. Following these powerful meditations, we will share uplifting kirtans with musicians who have travelled deeply with sound. Kirtans are the arrangement of mantras set to musical notes and rhythms to invoke deep feelings in us of pure divine love, celebration, remembrance and gratitude. Through kirtan we can guide our awareness to a place that is quiet and still. Each time our wandering minds come back to the mantra, we take a step towards our inner self, to find new meaning, new dimensions, new experiences and a new colour to life.

College of Psychic Studies
College of Psychic Studies - The College was founded in 1884 by a group of eminent scholars and scientists. Its purpose was to facilitate formal investigation into the psychic and mediumistic phenomena that were such a topic of debate in the Victorian era. With great courage, this group of distinguished people, some notable in science, others from within the ranks of the Anglican clergy, defied the prevailing canons of respectability in order to proclaim to a world of increasing materialism that human personality survives bodily death and that this is capable of demonstration.
