Sanskrit sound healing therapy

Feelings, emotions, relics, hopes and identities within us cannot be released by speaking. Sound vibrations on the other hand can travel to the innermost parts of us, they can reach us at a cellular level and shift long held patterns which might be restricting us.

To harmonise the relationship between our mind, body and heart, sound is essential. The tools of sound vibrations and mantra purify our being, and can help treat disorder caused by imbalanced vata, pitta or kapha in the body and mind.
Sound therapy uses the mind to go beyond the mind. The human being is a thinking creature, of thought patterns. Sound vibrations work with the thought patterns to reassemble the structure and process of things that have lain dormant and could be blocking our progress. And most importantly, sound triggers our awareness, so we see the patterns more clearly within us to work on.

To attain spirituality is to realize that the whole universe is one symphony in which every individual is one note. His happiness lies in becoming perfectly harmonious with the symphony of the universe.  Hazrat Inayat Khan

Sound therapy sessions last 1 hour
Sessions will begin in the New Year

"I found the experience of chanting both mesmerising and liberating, and it's not everyday that we wake up parts of the mouth that have been dormant since we were little... and uncovering the invitation through sound and vibration to seek what is truly ‘there’ – way beyond ‘verbal’ meaning or what is perceived through the senses." TT, London

We sent out an appeal to our patients and students to help underprivileged children and families in Sri Lanka.

Thanks to you, in December, we are able to provide 60 wheelchairs, school equipment for another 100 children (in addition to 200 previously) and another 10 scholarships in addition to the 32 scholarships already awarded.

Your donations are so helpful and the scholarships are making such a profound difference to the lives of the children and their families. The opportunity to continue their education changes the trajectory of their lives and their communities. When we contribute in this way, it is a great lift to our spirit to know that we are capable of bringing so much benefit to others. We know that these children and their families have sent prayers of gratitude to us and our karmic pathways, which is the purpose for our existence. 

If you have had a thought to participate, please know that it is a great thing you are doing ... contact us at the Ayurveda Institute or the clinic to find out how.
