UPLIFTING . JOYFUL . INSPIRATION
with David Eby
Music is vibration. What are we, but vibrations of energy? Sound waves carry thoughts, emotions, and energy straight into our being, affecting our consciousness, health, and wellness.
This course will give you not only a direct experience of the deeper power of music, but also the tools to take you where you want your consciousness to go.
Taken from direct experience, ancient yogic teachings, and the wisdom of Paramhansa Yogananda and Swami Kriyananda, we dive into the mysteries of how and why music affects us so strongly.
