Primordial Sound Meditation
Primordial Sound Meditation is a healing practice that allows us to experience inner calm and deep relaxation. For thousands of years, people have used meditation to move beyond the mind's busy activity and emotional turbulence into profound peace and expanded awareness. It is a tool for rediscovering the body's own inner intelligence.
In the 21st century, the restful awareness we experience during meditation is more valuable than ever. The pace of life has accelerated, every day we are bombarded with more information and stimulation than our ancestors encountered during entire lifetimes. Not surprisingly, the number of people suffering from stress, anxiety, insomnia, and chronic health problems is on the rise - and many are searching for peace of mind.
The most direct way to experience inner silence and well-being is meditation.
As scientific research reveals, when you meditate, your breathing slows, blood pressure decreases and stress hormone levels fall.
Primordial Sound Meditation isn't about forcing your mind to be quiet, but about experiencing the quiet that is already there. Even when your mind is filled with agitated thoughts, you still have access to the inner stillness and calm that always lies beneath the choppy surface of thought and emotion.
Even as your body is resting deeply in meditation, your mind is awake though quiet. The term "restful awareness" captures the unique combination of physical relaxation and an alert yet quiet mind.
"Meditation is not a way of making your mind quiet. It's a way of entering into the quiet that's already there ~ buried under the 50,000 thoughts the average person thinks every day"
What is Primordial Sound Meditation?
Primordial Sound Meditation is a meditation technique originating in the ancient wisdom of India. Primordial Sounds are the most basic sounds of nature, they are used to disconnect us from the activity of life. These individually selected sounds, known as mantras, are based on the vibration the universe was making at the moment of your birth. Chopra Center co-founders Deepak Chopra and David Simon have revived this ancient practice of sound meditation and made it available in a format that is easy to learn.
