Inner Peace through Sound and Positive Expression with Swami Muktidharma
When we leave the periphery and come closer to the centre, we experience calmness and gain access to an inner source of joy and deep peace.
Sometimes life shakes and challenges us and ripples are created in our lives. When we learn to look within, we can connect to a place of strength, balance and unwavering peace.
Leave the intellect at home and connect to this innate depth and wisdom. Explore the ancient sciences of Bhakti Yoga (the yoga of the heart and emotions) and Nada Yoga (the yoga of sound) and learn practices to direct the emotions, harmonise the body and balance the mind.
Receive the yogic tools of sound, mantra, meditation and music to effortlessly cultivate a positive mind in all life situations – the key to peace, contentment and harmony.
