    Alanna Kaivalya: Yoga, Mythology, and Sacred Sound

    in Lifestyle

    Alanna is "the teacher's teacher" and is listed as one of Yoga Journal's top 20 teachers under 40. Her approach fills in what's missing in yoga: mythology. She is anti-dogmatic in all things, and her love of science confirms her spirituality, rather than negates it. Alanna’s vision picks up where Joseph Campbell left off — to empower people to connect with and embrace their humanness.


    She is the author most recently of "Sacred Sound: Discovering the Myth and Meaning of Mantra & Kirtan."  Yoga Journal writes:  "Her intention is to make the more esoteric and musical parts of yoga approachable, spreading the higher vibrations they inherently embody."

    CHI FOR YOURSELF guest: Alanna Kaivalya

    in Self Help

    In yoga practice, mantra and kirtan (call-and-response devotional chanting) get short shrift in the West because they aren’t well understood, though they are an integral part of almost every Eastern spiritual practice. They are designed to provide access into the psyche while their underlying mythology helps us understand how our psychology affects daily life.


    Our Chi For Yourself guest Alanna Kaivalya has written a book that shares the myths behind the mantras and kirtans, with the intention to illuminate their meaning and to put their power and practicality within reach of every reader. Alanna Kaivalya is the author of SACRED SOUND: Discovering the Myth & Meaning of Mantra & Kirtan.

    Sacred Sound: Mantra and Kirtan - Interview with Alanna Kaivalya

    in Spirituality

    SACRED SOUND by Alanna Kaivalya - Nada Yoga — or the yoga of sacred sound — often gets short shrift in the West because mantras and kirtan aren’t readily understood. However, its chants are held sacred in all types of Eastern spiritual practice for the way they can help practitioners bypass the day-to-day mental chatter of the mind in order to reach a transcendent state of awareness and self-realization.


     


    In Sacred Sound: Discovering the Myth & Meaning of Mantra and Kirtan (New World Library, April 15, 2014), celebrated yoga teacher and author Alanna Kaivalya explores both the myth and meaning behind twenty-one mantras, or chants, that stem from the yogic tradition. She also describes the myth, text, or context each mantra comes from or is associated with, and explains how these rich myths relate to our modern-day spiritual practice.


     


    Sacred Sound offers practical guidance for starting, developing, and/or improving a mantra practice. Each mantra and kirtan in the book includes the Sanskrit, transliteration, and translation. Alanna’s clear retellings of the pertinent myths highlight modern-day applications so that readers discover their own personal connection to the practice. 


    Alanna Kaivalya is the author of Sacred Sound. She is the yoga world’s expert on Hindu mythology and mysticism. Her podcasts have been heard by more than one million people worldwide, and her Kaivalya Yoga Method melds mythology, philosophy, and yoga. Visit her online at http://www.alannak.com.
