Personal Mantra/Chanting Practice with Marla Meenakshi Joy

Mantras give a rejuvenating “face-lift” to the spirit! Working with one’s “sankalpa” or inner intention to heal or move in a certain channel of healing is what brings the power to this practice. This is what is called a “mantra sadhana” and helps to remove obstacles and generate a flow in a conscious, healing direction. A mantra/chanting private with Meenakshi begins by determining your specific, psychological and spiritual needs after which you will be given a mantra and a practice to work with over a series of days.


  • A personalized practice
  • Creates “tapas” or discipline
  • Helps to focus you in a conscious direction in your life
