Healing and Transforming Consciousness Through Sacred Music and Movement from Zen, Nada Yoga, and Sufism
April 5–7, 2019
Experience introspective and ecstatic practices of three ancient spiritual paths: Zen Buddhism, Nada Yoga, and Sufism. This unique experiential seminar will journey deep into sacred music chanting, movement, and spiritual mindfulness practices, drawing from the hidden wisdom of the traditions of the East. These practices result in heart opening, increased compassion, deepening of inner explorations, and have been shown scientifically to impact the structure and function of the brain in ways that enhance memory, cognition and awareness. These practices also promote healing by lowering stress, anxiety, depression, and anger. The activities are based on Yuval Ron’s work with master spiritual teachers of the East and neuroscientists of the West.
Through this incredible journey to your inner world, you will have a rare perspective into the worlds of Zen Buddhist masters, mystic Sufi leaders, leading Neuroscientists and scholars of Nada Yoga (The Yoga of Sound).
This seminar is experiential, and will NOT be lecture-based. Its focus is to provide a deep spiritual experience through walking and sound meditations, sacred movement from Sufi sources, ecstatic chanting, storytelling, and live Oud music by Yuval Ron.
A concert that Yuval will be giving in the Great Stupa during this program will coincide with Buddha’s Birthday!
Yuval Ron is an Award-winning composer and has collaborated with Sufi leader Pir Zia Inayat Khan, neuroscientists Mark Robert Waldman and Robert Monroe, and led the Gala Concert for the Dalai Lama’s the Seeds of Compassion He taught at Yale, John Hopkins University, UCLA, Middlebury College, MIT, and many others.
