The Science of Indian Music by Prosad

A-nophotoThis workshop will give an overview and introduction into the science of Indian music and how it affects consciousness.   You will learn about the history of the Indian Raga system of music, how it evolved and how it can be used as a tool for meditation.

Examples of different ragas will be demonstrated on the sitar and the concept of sound as a yogic path to raise consciousness will be discussed. We will also cover the transmission of this ancient music from master to disciple and what that means to us today. Listen, learn and enjoy this unique journey into the mystical music of India.
