Ben een geweldig mooi en inspirerend boek aan het lezen: “Healing mantra’s, Using Sound Affirmations for Personal Power, Creativity, and Healing” van Thomas Ashley-farrand.
Hier de complete beschrijving op amazon.com
Er is ook een cd bij verkrijgbaar, die helaas uit 1 lange track van ruim een uur bestaat.
Op bol.com staat dat je de cd erbij krijgt, maar dat is niet helemaal duidelijk.
“Sound is more than simply a medium of artistic expression. Sound has practical and powerful applications in the real world.”
Mantras, or simple chants, are short phrases packed with energy and intention–specifically designed to generate powerful sound waves that promote healing, insight, creativity, and spiritual growth. Healing Mantras is the practical, how-to guide that makes the strengths and benefits of mantras available to everyone. The transformative power of sound has been passed down to the present from the sages of India, the classical scientists of ancient Greece, and the medieval monks of Europe. Mantras, sounds, and chants have inspired, comforted, and mended the lives of individuals, religious orders, and even entire cultures. Even though the science and discipline of chanting and formal prayer are practiced in every religion around the world, this is the first time that ancient Sanskrit mantras have been explained and adapted to Western needs.
These mantras can be repeated aloud or in silence and can be used by people of any religion or spiritual practice, “as you wash dishes, as you drive on the freeway, as you meditate, or as you cook.” Sound can help and sound can heal, and Healing Mantras now makes this sound medicine available to everyone.

In ‘Healing Mantras’ the author shows how and why mantras work, and how to use them for everything from curing specific ailments to finding inner peace. In each of more than fifty mantras, all translated from the Sanskrit, Ashley-Farrand unlocks the power of every word, explains its appropriate application and tells you how to pronounce it in easy-to-follow, phonetic symbols. The mantras can be repeated aloud or silently by everyone anywhere, to help and to heal. Beginners will find here a lucid and solid grounding in sound meditation, but even those who already practise some energy-based techniques will discover much to enrich their spiritual journey to healing and freedom. * The book includes a free CD to help you on your way.
