Content & Schedule

Featuring sound-based communion practices and extensive multimedia skill learning material.


Our daily practices are nourishing, challenging, and build in intensity each day. The personal transformation we experience consistently exceeds our expectations.


Skill is devotion, in the Heart of Sound. You'll gain a practical foundation in voice culture, Indian musical scales, harmonium, and Sanskrit mantra as you prepare for leadership.


Regardless of your musical ability, you'll be trained to lead a chant experience that invites participants to experience communion through sound. It's not about performance, it's a service.

Primary Practice

A 90-minute deep Heart of Sound practice with nāda yoga and mantra meditation

Lecture, Q&A, Skills

Dynamic conversations with Anandra on the yoga of sound, transformation, and chant leadership.

Skills practice under teaching assistant supervision, study time, and student-led chant experiments


Guided yogāsana and self-massage to tune your body instrument especially for our penetrating sound-based practices

"The depth of the Heart of Sound practices really blew my mind. To have such a supportive course structure and community creates a phenomenally safe space. I have the tools I need to develop a practice to exist more mindfully in the world."
