During LifeForce Yoga training programs and retreats, we chant the Gayatri Mantra. This chant is about connecting with our own inner illumination. In this live recording of a meditation session, led by Rose Kress on January 28th, 2018, includes Gayatri Mantra as well as the LifeForce Yoga Chakra Clearing Meditation – Calming version. Below you will find information, including translations, on the Gayatri Mantra. The Gayatri Mantra and how to chant it can be found on Rose’s CD, Mantra Chanting with Rose, as well as the webinar series Mantra Meditation for Illumination.
The practice begins with the Vyahriti Mantras, which clear the chakras and the mental space. We then move into learning Gayatri Mantra and chanting it. The last portion of the practice is the calming version of the Chakra Clearing Meditation, which includes three Bee Breaths and the Mudra and Mantras.
