Mantra meditation involves chanting words or short phrases repeatedly. The mantras form a focus for the mind, and often an intention is set before chanting begins to aid that focus. The vibration of the sound is therapeutic in itself, and is especially powerful as it comes from within the body. The controlled deep breathing that inevitably accompanies the chanting adds a further dimension leading to an intensely relaxing and blissful experience. Please don’t be put off by thinking that you can’t sing, this is not singing, its chanting (if you can talk, you can chant) and the Indian harmonium provides a fabulous support for all voices.
