The Secret Science of Sound and Mantra:
How mantra-practice can invite health, prosperity and happiness
American yogis are increasingly awake to the joy and power of kīrtan, or singing Sanskrit mantras. In this new workshop, you will learn from a Sanskrit scholar about the six kinds of mantras and how to use them to cleanse the mind, open the subtle centers, and create greater ease and flow in your life. Mantra practice has a unique power to increase the “juiciness” of life! Since it can only be learned from a qualified scholar-practitioner, join us for this rare offering.

Hareesh was introduced to Indian spirituality at the age of six and initiated into the practice of meditation and yoga at sixteen. While traveling around the world in his early twenties, he felt an inner inspiration to study, teach, and practice Indian spirituality and meditation as the focus of his life. He now has over 20 years of practice, and has been studying and teaching the tradition full time since 1997.
Hareesh’s teaching balances accuracy with accessibility, profundity with clarity, and intellectual integrity with heart-expanding inspiration. As a gifted scholar, Hareesh holds an M.Phil. in Classical Indian Religions from the University of Oxford, and a Ph.D. in Sanskrit and Indian Studies from U.C. Berkeley. His doctoral work was on the role of spiritual experience in the tradition of Tantrik Shaivism. He currently teaches meditation, yoga darshana (philosophy), Sanskrit, chanting, and offers spiritual life-coaching and serves as Head Faculty at The Mattamayura Institute. His first book, Tantra Illuminated, is published by Mattamayūra Press.
