About This Class

This class is geared toward beginners and professionals alike.

Sat Nam is a mantra or word/s repeated to aid concentration and mental awareness.  Sat Nam is derived from the language of Gurmukhi and translated basically means "Truth is my identity" or "Truth is my name".  You may hear or see slight variations on the translation however, they are all basically the same at the root meaning.

Sat Nam may also be used as a greeting basically stating " I see your truth" or "I recognize your divinity".  If you are familiar with Namaste, you will see that they are quite similar.

When we use mantras, we are vocalizing a specific frequency that effects the body and mind in certain uplifting ways.  We can compare this to listening to our favorite music, singing or humming our favorite tune, and the sense of happiness or ease that comes from performing this act. 

This specific mantra aids us in becoming aware of our true nature, divine nature, and brings a state of calmness and peace.  In this class you will learn:

This has always been a mantra close to my heart, I find it quite beautiful and most effective.  I would like to share with you a basic introduction to using this mantra for aiding the creation of peace, calmness, and truth in your everyday life.
