Primordial Sound Meditation
An Effortless Tool for
Stress Management and Beyond
"Meditation is not a way of making your mind quiet. It's a way of entering into the quiet that's already there." Deepak Chopra
Primordial Sound Meditation is a meditation technique originating in the ancient wisdom and yoga tradition of India. Primordial Sounds—the basic, most essential sounds of nature—are used to disconnect us from the activity of life. These individually selected sounds, known as mantras, are based on the vibration the universe was making at the moment of your birth.
Once your Primordial Sound mantra has been determined, you will be taught how to use it on a daily basis to reawaken balance, tranquility and compassion within. Your Chopra Center Certified instructor, David Blake Jones, will help you to integrate this practice into your daily routine.
"The purpose of life is the expansion of happiness." Maharishi Mahesh Yogi
Why should I meditate?
“If you were to ask me what was the most important experience of my life, I would say it was learning to meditate. For me, that is the most important thing a person can do to restore harmony and evolve to a higher state of consciousness.”
~Deepak Chopra M.D.
Primordial Sound Meditation is a powerful self-help tool for rediscovering the body’s own inner intelligence. Practiced for thousands of years, it’s not about forcing the mind to be quiet, it’s finding the silence that’s already there and making it a part of your life.
Silence is the birthplace of happiness, creativity and infinite possibilities. From this field of pure potentiality we get our bursts of inspiration, our most intuitive thoughts, and our deepest sense of connection to the Universe. Practicing meditation on a daily basis allows you to weave silence and stillness into your mind and body to create a life of greater compassion and fulfillment. Meditation is a journey to the center of our very being; a journey to emotional freedom; and a journey to the reawakening of our unconditioned self.
What are the benefits of Meditation?
Nowadays, doctors are increasingly citing stress as a major contributing factor to most illnesses. Even though meditation should not be considered a cure by itself, research has shown it to be beneficial for a wide range of health problems. As stress is greatly eliminated through Primordial Sound Meditation, our minds and bodies begin to function with maximum effectiveness, creating health, vitality and happiness.
Whenever we experience stress, our minds and bodies become activated. Scientists have labeled the process of physiological change in response to stress, the “Fight or Flight response.” With chronic stress, the effects of the “Fight or Flight response” often lead to disease and a poor quality of life.
Let's see some physiological effects of the "Fight or Flight Response"
Meditation is an excellent way to counteract the effects of stress. During meditation, physiological changes occur which are the direct opposite of those changes which occur during the “Fight or Flight response.” Scientists have described this response to meditation, the “Relaxation response.”

Regular practice of meditation also leads to an infusion of awareness into everyday activity and rest. Bad habits lose their power over us, quality of life improves, intuition blossoms, and trivial concerns become less important. We become more loving and compassionate, and we feel more lighthearted.
Ultimately, we enjoy life to its fullest potential.
Will I need to change my lifestyle?
Primordial Sound Meditation can be learned by people of every age, education, culture, and religion.
It does not require specific beliefs or a change in behavior or lifestyle. The only change or adjustment we need to make is to allow the time to mediate regularly. Other than that, any changes in our life come spontaneously.
