India is home to the world’s largest number of blind people. Of the 37 million people across the globe who are blind, over 15 million are from India.
It is difficult for us to imagine what life would be without sight but we do understand that most of the meditation techniques require you to close your eyes and focus your attention towards your inner world all meditation techniques use sound as a medium to instruct you and guide you to a calm relaxed space with in
Even a lot of calm relaxed music is best enjoyed with your eyes closed
It is said that Visually Impaired people are more sensitive to sound
A number of studies demonstrate that visually impaired have brains that are rewired to allow their visual cortex, which would otherwise be used for the processing of visual information, to improve their ability to process auditory information. By using their visual cortex, the blind are better than the sighted at extracting more spatial information from sounds.
Nada Yoga is the yoga of sound it is a form of meditation that connects us to the subtle dimensions of our inner world by practsing Nada Yoga we are able to listen to the inner sounds or in other words the cosmic sounds and these sounds help us relax concentrate and help in enhancing our experience of the present moment
Hence we developed workshops and meditations for the visually impaired these workshops are a combination of body movements breathing and relaxation techniques which are paired with music for them to be able to enjoy express and experience themselves. The workshops are designed to bring about Joy happiness and a sense of collective participation which leads to them truly having a unique deep and aware experience.
We are reaching out to as many Visually Impaired institutions and sharing our meditations with the students who are studying or living there so that they too can find a way to relax and enjoy the varied benefits of meditation
