Course Details

Delve deep into the healing power of ancient Sanskrit prayers!

In our busy and noisy world, where we are constantly pulled by distractions as we try to move down our daily to-do list, it can often feel like we are adrift on the sea of life rather than sailing the ship.

Much has been made in the last decade around intentionality - perhaps a yoga teacher has encouraged you to set an intention on your mat during practice, or you’ve read a book or taken a course on manifestation, maybe you’ve worked with vision boards or journaling - but all of these modern approaches to directing our energy are as old as mankind's ability to pray. As the adage goes - where attention goes energy flows.

Prayer can offer us a reprieve from our helter-skelter life, and can allow us to lay a hand on the tiller of our ship by creating space to cultivate what we need in the moment - whether this is creating a space for peace, energizing our desire to manifest an aligned path, or building more space in our hearts for our loved ones and others in need.

This online course will focus on a collection of ancient and sacred Sanskrit Vedic prayers that have been repeated millions of times over the centuries. In community, we will explore the context, translation, and pronunciation of each prayer and the intentionality behind it - so that you can start to use these powerful verses in your daily life.

Join best-selling author, humanitarian, and internationally-renowned chant artist and Bhakti practitioner, David Newman, as he works through each verse step by step, and provides a supportive space to empower you to learn, recite, practice, and embody these beautiful, ancient, healing, purposeful prayers. No prior experience is needed for enrollment.
