What is Nada Yoga?

Nada YogaA theme in The Unknown Mother is something called Nada Yoga.  Nada Yoga is the yoga of sound.  Sound being vibration, and all of life being vibration, one could say that Nada Yoga is the yoga of Life.  It is a natural path for the musically inclined, deep listeners, and those who are comfortable with mystery.

Whereas the traditional scientist considers the world to made up for atoms and molecules, the Nada yogi considers sound to contain the building blocks of all that is.  For that reason, sound is held as sacred and as a path to healing and enlightenment.

There are various levels of sound to which one can become attuned.  There is the outermost or gross level of sound…the sounds we hear daily in our environment.  There is also a mid-level of sound that is contained within us, our “inner music”.  And finally, there is the subtlest level of sound, the sounds beyond sound, so to speak.  This is  the Great Sound that penetrates through everyone and everything, unifying the whole, the music of all creation.  One can get a sense of listening in a new way by practicing this meditation for opening the ear chakras.

The thing about Nada yoga is that is has to be experienced individually.  Talking about it, intellectualized reading about it, and especially thinking about…they will never give you a taste of it. Through fiction and the vibration of letters and words, The Unknown Mother allows the reader to first, share in the experience of a relate-able main character, and second, inspires the reader to engage in the simple practices herself.  The book will be published in 2012.

The Unknown Mother: An Introduction

The Unknown Mother

The Unknown Mother Medicine Mandala

Did you know that “Abracadabra” comes from the Aramaic…” abraq ad babra”, which literally translates to “I will create as I speak”? The message of The Unknown Mother is to reawaken people to this truth and to that which we habitually take for granted…the power of the voice. When we bring our awareness to our voice and learn to express it in new ways, with impeccability, we rediscover our true message. Voice is the key to unlocking our power and magnificence. This is about allowing and accepting your magical self.

This project is really about my life’s work. The Unknown Mother is a book based on my years of experiences along the Sacred Sound and Toltec paths as it reveals some of the principles behind these wisdom traditions. I like to call it a work of truth disguised as fiction and a work of fiction masquerading as truth. As such, it is both an engaging story and a manual for creating through vocal expression. It’s a book for sound lovers, voice lovers, lovers of words, and lovers of life. In other words, it’s a book for Lovers.

The Unknown Mother is currently seeking a publisher.
