Focus of the Month: July



It’s hard to pick favorites with the beloved themes we explore over the yearly cycle, but each July we come home to OM. OM, the Mantra of Mantras, said to contain them all, OM which is saying yes, agreeing, accepting; a direct affirmation of a divine presence within ourselves and a connection to all resounding vibrating energy.

When we chant OM, “the human voice is employed to reproduce a sound which is continually ‘recited’ by the universe itself” (George Feurstein). It is this that came to be known as harmonizing with the spheres.

Meanwhile, our ancient text, the Upanishads tells us that the sun (surya) actually emits this primordial vibration hum as it revolves in the sky.

So we set off in July to have an experience with this Mantra, with ourselves and with the Sangha. Look for rolling OMs, explanations of the four sounds which make up the Mantra, its relationship to Amen and MORE.
