SKU: 2952. Category: . Tags: .

Program Description

Television, telephones, cars, computers, cell phones, planes, trains, buses, boom boxes, and everyone talking at once. We live in a noisy world, so it’s not surprising that we’re out of tune with the sonic sounds of nature. How do we reconnect? Composer and multi-instrumentalist Russill Paul directs us to the yoga of sound, which draws from the voices of stones, rocks, trees, birds, and the subtle and constant communication which occurs between all living things. Paul provides sound clips, as he explains the different types and styles of yoga, and how mantric language can have a salubrious effect on body, mind and spirit. “Every one of these sound yogas has very practical applications and relevance to our times and the kinds of conditions we live in.” (Hosted by Neil Harvey)
