Yogic Song & Mantra

The dakini songs of the Aro gTér Lineage are dramatic and powerful, and are also melodically beautiful. To practice them evokes joy. Yogic song is a method in itself of finding presence of awareness, and is also employed as a support for meditation. 

The voice can be soothing or screeching, harsh or harmonious, booming or bashful – and the vajra melodies employ all these qualities. 
All meditation sessions at Aro Ling Cardiff are interspersed with yogic song and mantra. Song sheets are provided. It is left to the individual to decide whether they wish to join in and sing, or simply listen to the experienced practitioners’ mastery of the melodies. Either way, yogic song enriches and enlivens meditation practice.
