Discover a proven, powerful ancient meditation technique
Deepak Chopra has revitalized an ancient meditation technique called Primordial Sound Meditation. It's a simple, silent, mantra-based meditation technique that you can learn in a one day workshop with expert meditation instructor and best-selling Hay House author, Sarah McLean, the director of McLean Meditation Institute in Sedona, Arizona. Sarah served as the Education Director at the Chopra Center for Wellbeing and worked for Dr. Deepak Chopra for over eight years and has taught hundreds of people to meditate and has seen amazing results.
What is Primordial Sound Meditation?
This silent mantra meditation uses primordial sounds, or sounds of nature, to access the silence that exists between your thoughts, and beneath the turbulent surface of your mind. These primordial sounds, or mantras, are specific sounds chosen for you based on your the time and location of birth. You will use your personal mantra silently, and it will serve as a vehicle to connect you with deeper aspects of your awareness.
This form of meditation is derived from the yoga tradition of India. Yoga means union-the union of environment, senses, body, mind, and soul. This union is described in an ancient text known as the Yoga Sutras written by the sage Patanjali. He explains that yoga is the progressive settling down of the mind into the field of pure silence. This field is hidden from us, it's always there, but is usually overshadowed by the activity of the mind.
You'll access the silent spaces between your thoughts
During Primordial Sound Meditation your mind becomes quiet, and because your mind and body is truly connected, this allows your body to settle down and gain the deep rest necessary to release stress and fatigue. You'll enliven your inner healer, and have the direct experience of your higher self - or soul — where energy, creativity, and inner awareness are your natural state of being.
When we meditate, we enter into the field of silence, of pure, unbounded awareness. Deepak Chopra calls this experience the experience of being in "the gap". Being in this field of quiet, expanded awareness allows us to recognize that our essential self is not the constant conversation that fills our minds, but the silent witness to our thoughts, words, and actions. The thinker of the thought.
Regular practice of meditation helps establish this filed of awareness, the inner quietness in life, in our activity. This provides access to our creativity and freedom of choice.
