   Mark Torgeson on Sound and Consciousness                                                                                               January 2017

Give-Away Corner:
 
One of my favorite self-produced recordings is one that I didn't create at all - only recorded. I've long said that my music is inspired by nature, and in this clip you will see why. Mother's Day Birdsong was recorded on Mother's Day and features the incomparable orchestra of Nature. Dedicated to the Mother of us All: Gaia, Earth.
 
Happy Travels!
- Mark

Mantras & Kirtan

 
At a recent symposium on Unity in Diversity at Sivananda Ashram Yoga Retreat Bahamas, where my wife Carol was speaking, I had the opportunity to experience the mantra of Tantric Priest Krishnan Namboodiri and the kirtan of Guara Vani  - all in the same evening! Mantra is a sacred sound, word or words which has a specific power or effect. Kirtan is a musical story of spiritual significance usually taking the form of call and response. Both raise the vibration of the performer and listener to sublime levels. As a student of Healing Sound I was blessed to have the opportunity to  experience these two forms of mantra - one spoken and one musical - by masters of the craft.  In observing the effect it had on my energy system, the notable difference between the two was that the spoken mantra, without music, invoked me to go deep inside and immerse in stillness; whereas the musical/sung mantra invoked an outwardly focused communal joyousness. Both substantially raised my vibration and placed me in a highly open and receptive state. And they both have been used to shift consciousness in spiritual aspirants for thousands of years.  Here's an example of kirtan...   Watch...
