A companion to Harish Johari's book Chakras: Energy Centers of Transformation, this CD provides the authentic sounds for meditation on each of the chakras. While Johari's book gives phonetic guidelines for intoning the appropriate bija sounds, learning the correct pronunciation requires a knowledgeable teacher and guide. In Sounds of the Chakras, Johari presents the entire intonation cycle that should be practiced with each chakra meditation in a manner that students can follow with ease.
Japa--the repeated chanting of a mantra--is an age-old Hindu technique to help you become attuned with the planets and their ruling deities and thereby create peace and prosperity in your life. On this CD the noted Tantric scholar Harish Johari chants the mantras associated with the Sun and the Moon 108 times, the preferred number of repetitions. Using this CD you will not only hear the mantras intoned by an expert but also be freed from the burden of counting while chanting.
Case is cracked, but CD is undamaged.
Much of what we experience as physical tension or stress is the result of an imbalanced body. In this CD, Mary Bond presents a selection of 26 structural awareness exercises from her book, Balancing Your Body, that teach the listener to recognize and respond in appropriate ways to the body's inner messages. Beginning with an exploration of your habitual standing and walking patterns, these exercises guide the listener through a variety of experiences that contribute to standing, sitting, and walking with fluidity, balance, and ease. This unique self-help program will help to create new freedom in your physical expression and improve your well-being and vitality.
Drawing upon ancient Indian ragas, or musical compositions, Harish Johari has created meditation music especially for the early morning and evening hours. Traditionally, ragas are inspired by, and reflect, sounds of nature--such as birds, insects, rivers, and wind--which change in quality depending upon the hour of the day. The CD's include Flute for Dawn, ideal for meditation before sunrise. This is followed by Tambura for Morning Meditation, which can be played in the early hours following sunrise. It also features Flute and Bird for Dusk, incorporating actual bird calls that, in nature, announce the close of day. The droning sound of the tambura in the final piece, Tambura Evening Meditation, has sympathetic overtones that subtly influence the nervous system.
The music on this CD is created by flute and tambura, both of which have a healing effect on the body, mind, and spirit.
