New to Meditation? Try Nada Yoga: Union Through Sound

Practice Nada Yoga with Reggie Hubbard (and his gongs) on Wanderlust TV: his new series ‘Nada Yoga: Union Through Sound‘ is a 10-part series that you can practice for self-ruling when you take wholesomeness of our free 14-day trial.

I remember when I first started meditating, I had so many questions….

What if I do it wrong?

What if I can’t get my mind to stop thinking?

What am I supposed to be doing?

Why can’t I stop focusing on my foot that’s falling asleep?


As a meditation teacher, I unchangingly try to remember to offer variegated tips and techniques so that students can see that there are variegated ways to practice meditation and that it’s okay to prefer a practice that serves your practice needs. What’s most important is creating regular intervals to pause, take an inventory of our somatic and energetic needs, and fortify ourselves in vibrations with our understanding inquiry. That is the focus of this meditation journey.

The journey’s foundation is based on the premise that the aim of meditation is bringing the mind into right relationship with itself—invoking a sense of ease so that sensation can expand, the mind can wifely and we can uncork to wits life with increasingly grace and subtlety. And the journey is rooted in my formal training in mindfulness through the MMTCP program with Jack Kornfield and Tara Brach, infusing elements of nada yoga, the yoga of sound.

Mindfulness pairs the concepts of expanding non-judgmental sensation and lovingkindness. Let’s pinpoint sensation as the speciality of consciousness that bears witness to our human wits without judgment, but simply takes notice. And let’s pinpoint lovingkindness (metta) as unconditional love–for self and others. The goal of metta meditation is to awaken our connectedness to all life. If mindfulness is this topics to see clearly, metta is the topics to meet what is happening with kindness and caring. Sabene Salassie likens metta to the warmth and power of the sun–which illuminates all, which thaws all, and allows us to see things with increasingly compassion. The warmth of metta allows for repair and reconnection. Another speciality of metta to consider is that it is the response of the awakened heart–a quality of sustentation and discernment well-nigh what your needs are, and how to respond in light of those needs.


That understanding forms the understructure of my series on Wanderlust TV, “Nada Yoga: A 10-part Meditation Journey“. Over the undertow of this mindfulness journey, I uncork with some fundamental meditation techniques and definitions, and well-nigh halfway through the series I introduce variegated sounds (crystal bowls, Tibetan singing bowls, and gongs) to heighten your connection to states of consciousness that sally when the mind is calmer. Nada yoga allows the mind to quiet by focusing on sound, then we can withstand witness to internal and external sounds which can range from the vapor in the body, thoroughbred circulating to hearing the walkover or the sound of silence and stillness.

The series is for all levels of meditation practitioners—from those who have never practiced meditation before, to those who practice every now and then, to those who have a regular practice. Enjoy the journey with an unshut mind, tell a friend, and most importantly, enjoy the endangerment to take a mindful pause for the weightier rationalization ever: your healing and well-being.
