Mantra is a form of `sacred utterance' originating most commonly in Indian Hindu and Tibetan Buddhist cultures and through the vehicles of sanskrit language, although mantras can be personal or derived from other origins, languages, and sacred texts. Often, they are used as a point of meditation, as the rhythmic repetition soothes and focuses the mind while developing a sense of reverence, bhakti (devotion), and spiritual community when practiced as a group. The cultural significance of each mantra is integral to its energetic effects, but no religious or dogmatic affiliations are necessary to experience the vibrational and personal merits of a mantra practice. Mantra events and soundbaths are held regularly, and lessons in mantra alone or with guitar, vocals, and ukelele are available on request.
Om Mani Padme Hum. Cultivates compassion; helps relieve all living beings from sufferings and difficulties
Tate Thriffley, Jaime Ray, and Kelsey Wishik offering a Dia De Los Muertos soundbath through Greenhouse Yoga and their band Mississippi Mantra.
Music, like mantra, is a timeless vibrational technology that has uplifted the human spirit since the beginning of human history, and probably before. All beings emanate an authentic tone--we could call this music--from the sounds of nature to the songs in our hearts. It is an artform that defies language barriers and speaks directly to the emotions and spirit. Kelsey Wishik's music blends influences from around the world, especially latin and gypsy music in minor keys, and is a swampy blend of folk, mantra, Southern soft rock and gospel, acoustic and electric guitar, Native American flute, and Lofi hip-hop.
