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.
“His music is delightful—a spiritually uplifting experience.”
—Caroline Myss, bestselling 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.’’
Three thousand years ago in the temples of India, yogis chanted sacred Vedic mantras as a practice of meditation, inspiration, and spiritual awakening. 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.
Russill’s evocative chanting is supported by an ensemble of traditional Indian and contemporary instrumentation. Listen quietly to go on an inward journey through meditative states, or chant along and be bathed in these healing sonic energies.
Russill presents his work on musical mysticism at retreats and learning centers worldwide. He has shared the stage with many musical luminaries, and has performed for His Holiness the Dalai Lama.
