SACRED SOUND: Discovering the Myth & Meaning of Mantra and Kirtan (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. She explores both the myth and meaning behind twenty-one mantras, or chants, that stem from the yogic tradition.
Sacred Sound offers practical guidance for starting, developing, and/or improving a mantra practice.

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."

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.
"Anyone can do anything they want. There are no limitations." - Alanna Kaivalya

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.

As we continue our amazing discussions about the different types of YOGA practices, I am thrilled to have Alanna Kaivalya as my guest this week.
This week talk about the almost magical results that can come from a regular practice of Mantra & Kirtan which is similar to a call and response practice.
A regular practice such as this can open a whole new world to those who choose to participate in this practice. Giving you health benefits that will be seen by others. For more information please visit www.Alannak.com
So many of us have been practicing yoga for years – but do we really practice yoga? Are we just using it as a form of exercise? Do you take what you practice in yoga and incorporate it into your daily life?
Whether you’ve just started a yoga practice or you’ve been practicing yoga for decades, you’ll gain a deeper understanding of the philosophy and power behind the sacred phrases that contain deeper wisdom to illuminate your yogic path.
Expand your horizons by learning how to touch the deepest parts or yourself that few other spiritual disciplines can reach.
Join Sue Graywolf, Sharon Rainbow Eagle and Jim Graywolf for Eaglewolf Radio on the Ciracle Station on Wednesday, 8/6 at 1 PM MST, 3 PM EST, 8 PM London and 10 PM Israel time as we will bring the medicine of the Condor and the Eagle and welcome them as they are about to become one and fly together in the circle, within our hearts.
We were inspired from the special show we had a week ago, when we talked about Mother Earth and Father Sky with Mallku and Alanna, and decided to ask the South which is being represented by the Condor and the North which is being represented by the Eagle to come and teach us the medicine we need to enter into our lives. The Condor and the Eagle are much more than the South and the North as the South and the North are much more than directions. They are our circle, a balanced one, a vision of harmony, peace and co-existence.
So what else can we learn from our winged guides? How can we bring them to fly as one? How can we bring ourselves to be one? Don’t miss this show! We will paint more of the picture of how we can better connect with our planet for our own health and wellbeing and for the connections and love provided to us for others and our planetary home.
We invite listeners to come and participate in the discussion and sharing of knowledge. And we thank all our listeners for truly “being” the shows we air.
Join us! We will see you soon.
