Alongside the familiar yoga practice of movement and meditation is the ancient yoga of music and chant, whose goal is to open your heart, awaken your mind, and arouse your Spirit. Russill Paul is a modern master of this practice, having left his career in film music to immerse himself in monastery life and be initiated into this powerful art.
“His music is delightful—a spiritually uplifting experience.”
—Caroline Myss, best-selling author of Sacred Contracts
“His fusion of the sounds of India with the energy and technology of contemporary Western music produces a sound unequaled since George Harrison collaborated with Ravi Shankar in the late 1960s.’’
Part 1: Shakti: Tantric Embrace
Indian percussion, flute, sarangi, tanpura, and Russill’s stirring tantric chants arouse the body’s subtle energy centers, called “chakras.” Shakti connects you to your body and the earth, heightening sensuality, deepening yoga practice, and inspiring movement and meditation.
Part 2: Bhava: Ecstatic Heart
Russill’s penetrating Sanskrit chanting combined with guitars, synthesizers, tanpura, sarangi, and percussion opens your heart to mystical union with Spirit. Bhava unites the expansiveness of the cosmos with the intimacy of the human body, bringing you a sense of inner freedom and profound love.
Russill Paul presents his work on musical mysticism at retreats and learning centers worldwide. He is the author of The Yoga of Sound: Tapping the Hidden Power of Music and Chant (New World Library). He has shared the stage with many musical luminaries, and has performed for His Holiness the Dalai Lama.
