Chakra Meditation Practitioners Supported with New CD on Chanting OM
A new core training Chakra Meditation CD on the essential preliminary sound placement in the Chakras for Chanting Om has been released. Om Unplugged is a guided meditation CD that delves into this fundamental Om mantra meditation technique.
Meditation leader and healing arts filmmaker Victor Demko is the guide for this work on Chanting Om. Om is considered the sound of the universe and is said to be in all things and everywhere. In the guided meditation CD Mr. Demko who has practiced meditation for 19 years and led meditation for 10 years, takes participants through steps with sound placement in the charkas and also guides listeners with a classic meditation from Christina Mystic Hildegarde de Bingen on expansion and light and from that place has listeners chanting and working with Om.
“Om is widely referred to in the west today, particularly in the yoga world” say Demko who studied meditation with Sufi Master Pir Vilayat Inayat Khan for 12 years, Swami Sundaranand in the Indian Himalayas and the Dali Lama. Demko continues “it is a symbol and sound that has been used as part of the spiritual traditions for a long time”. The unique symbol of Om is becoming widely recognized in the Western Yoga world. It is a sign in the east that is instantly recognized. The CD cover for Om Unplugged is the Om symbol over top a picture of the Universe from the Hubble Space telescope.
Om Unplugged has 6 tracks, each dealing with an important element of chanting Om. Om is part of many other chants like the Budhist chant Om Mane Pudme Om and the Sanskrit Om Nahma Shivaya often done in Yoga. Mr. Demko says his long standing interest in the sound and practice of Om is what motivated him to put out this work.
Om Unplugged: A Step by Step Guided Meditation for Awakening & Self Realization is a guided meditation CD that does not have the typical background new age music, Mr Demko says he did not want people to veer away from the fundamental purpose of the guided meditation which is awakening and self realization and those steps in this case are best experienced by a straight up meditation. He further mentioned he wanted to give people favorable circumstances to experience this type of straight up guided meditation that would give them the opportunity to more fully move toward the understanding and realization of the Om vibration. Continuing he says this is not spiritual entertainment but an actual meditation for awakening and self realization and should be regarded as such. “Music has its place but it is not for this type of presentation as people are encouraged to work with and find their own way to the sound which will benefit participants most” notes Demko.
