Description

For thousands of years Hindu spirituality has understood the profound effect that sound has on our well-being. From this tradition comes The Yoga of Sound, which draws on yoga's long history of applying sound to reduce stress, maintain health, and invoke spiritual awakenings. In lucid exercises presented both in the book and on accompanying downloadable audio tracks, Russill Paul shows how everyone can learn the art of mantra and how these practices can help to optimize the flow of energy within the body and enhance emotional well-being.

Endorsements

“A new classic in both yoga and spirituality.”
— from the foreword by Wayne Teasdale

“From heart to mind, from body to spirit, Russill Paul weaves the powers of sound into the practical and inspirational union of East and West. A rare and important book, The Yoga of Sound goes into the depth of an ancient power with ease and artistry. Accompanied by a CD, this book is actualized and inspired by a fine teacher and extraordinary performer.”
— Don Campbell, author of The Mozart Effect

“Music is woven throughout nature from our own DNA to the galaxies, and that is why it is a source of transformation and wisdom. Russill Paul is a master guide in this domain. His work is clear evidence that music is much too powerful to be used as mere entertainment.”
— Larry Dossey, MD, author of The Extraordinary Healing Power of Ordinary Things

“Sound may well be the undiscovered realm for the salvation of our wayward human species. The sages of India have known this for millennia. In The Yoga of Sound, Russill Paul presents a comprehensive and accessible summary of this ancient tradition and shows us how we can incorporate those time-honored practices into our overly visual and busy Western lives. This book is a vital gift for our times.”
— Paul Winter, musician

“The music of Russill Paul is not only distinctive, it is extraordinary and brilliant. His fusion of the sounds of India with the energy and technology of contemporary Western music produces a sound unequalled since George Harrison collaborated with Ravi Shankar in the late 1960s.”
— Arlo Guthrie, musician
