Welcome to this journey into the study & practice of Vedic mantra.


Often translated to mean 'perfected', the word Sanskrit is made of 2 root parts: 'sam' meaning 'together' + 'karoti' meaning 'he makes'


During this course, we will be opening up the origami folds of the major mantras of the Vedas, exploring them vibrationally, somatically, intellectually and as the sonic form of deity.


This course is designed to give a foundation for absolute beginners, or those who have some experience and want to improve their pronunciation or deepen their understanding of how to work with mantra & deity. 


My approach to Sanskrit comes through both the Tantric & Vedic lineages that I have studied in depth, which mirror metaphysical concepts that everything is made of vibration. As such, we can work with Mantra Shakti  to shape our reality… for the better.


We will be working deeply with the throat chakra, Vishuddhi which literally means 'Purification'. Mantra practice is a way of purifying our spoken word and also the words that make up our thoughts & beliefs, as well as bringing harmony the space surrounding us, creating a protective architecture in our energetic field.


We will begin with the building blocks of Sanskrit, the the Sanskrit alphabet. In a practical sense, polishing the pronunciation of each letter of the alphabet will support the pronunciation of longer mantras. From the Tantric perspective, this practice of the Sanskrit Patha - the Recitation of Sanskrit, is to break language into its particles and worship the power of creation.



Deities are like different colours in the spectrum of light. They may be approached as foundational energetic forces that exist within all of life or as divine beings who may be evoked externally to create support or balance in our lives. We will focus on the Trimurti - the major deities of creation, sustenance & destruction. We will learn about their geometric yantra form and feel their essence somatically as we chant.


When the Rishi’s - the ancient sages of India, first received the transmissions, they came in the abstract form of monosyllabic seed mantras called bija mantras. The bija mantras are the sonic equivalent of every deity, element & chakra. We will begin the unravelling of mantra, beginning with the vibration of Om.


There are several important mantras which do not directly relate to deity that we will also explore, such as the Gayatri, Om Shanti, So Ham, Om Asatoma and more. 

All of the mantras that we will be practicing will be relatively short, about 1-5 lines per mantra.

A longer mantra is not a better mantra. 

The shorter mantras are the most ancient and they carry the shakti of infinite recitations. This course is designed to help you to become confident and fluent in using the basic mantras.


In Vedic Chanting, the melody & meter are set and there is a 'correct' way to chant Veda. You will learn chanting in the traditional way and practice repetitive Japa recitation to infuse the mantras into your memory. 

Mantras can also be sung with any melody and I will share some of my favourite melodies that I have collected over many years of travelling to India.


Mantra is made of 2 parts - 'man', meaning 'that which measures'  + 'tra' - to cross over, the same root as 'travel'. Chanting creates a fertile ground to move beyond the mind. I will share meditation practices connected both to bija practice as well as deity.

I was introduced to mantra in 2010 through my yoga practice. I began travelling to India frequently and spent time living in ashrams where mantra & fire rituals were a primary focus along with yoga & meditation.

In 2015 I was introduced to Gurudeva Vagish Shastri in Varanasi who was a renowned saint & revered teacher at Benares University. I received Shaktipat initiation and studied Sanskrit, kundalini meditation & tantric philosophy with him 1:1 in his home during my yearly travels to India until his passing in 2020. 

In 2018, I began learning the art of Vedic puja (ritual). This deepened my understanding of both the Tantric & Vedic perspectives on mantra, mudra, deity & worship immensely.

Honouring all of my teachers, thank you so much for everything you have shared with me.

Om sri guru bhyo namaha.
