“Living a serieus spiritual life brought me answers. I found out how I am contributing to the world by creating with resonance every instant of living and I found out how I can influence this in a way which can bring peace. That this is just on a small scale does not really matter because I found out that whether it is (or should be) small or big is not up to me.
What helps me in not becoming frustrated is the acceptance ‘It is what it is and I am what I am’. In this acceptance lies peace, meaning & joy that is beyond the matters and affairs of the world. Only with this acceptance as a starting point creation can flow in a beneficial way”.
The Divine is in every person
Some people experience something missing in their lives, there is a certain longing; a search starts here.
If we allow to open ourselves for the divine or mystical dimension that is there it will colour our daily lives in such a way that the same life is experienced differently.
Nâm Yoga, which originates in an age-old transcendental Yoga, has instruments that give direction to perception in such a way that optimal Well-Being is the result.
What can you expect from this course?
During the courses we are exploring the different aspects of Nâm Yoga in a small group. We will investigate how experience works, how creation works and more importantly how we, from this understanding in different levels, can use this in our lives in such a way that we can solve problems, create well being and find answers on serious life questions.
The books ‘Meaning & Joy of Nâm Yoga’ and ‘Dimensions of Experience’ are the main literature to be used.
During the weekends we use various instruments. In addition to interactive lessons on the philosophy, we use contemplation, Nâm Meditation, silence, recordings with interviews with Yoginâm and we use what comes up in present moment.
You are also invited to continue exploring when you are going home after the weekend. Therefore you are advised to build up a daily rhythm of meditation and for one month you will receive access to join communal HarpMood Meditations online.
This form of yoga does not use asana’s as are often found in other forms of yoga.
This course is for you when you
- are seeking a life that is more in a natural flow
- inwardly desire to be whole or complete
- want to be happier and more fulfilled
- want to solve your problems
- want to experience more joy in your life
- find insufficient meaning in your current life
- experience a lack of connection with life itself
- have the feeling of being alone and you feel the need of sharing
- are looking for a different orientation in life than what the current (materially oriented) society offers.
Nâm Yoga with its traditional instruments is especially helpful for Western people to rediscover the meaning of life and to more consciously give a form and direction to the task and responsibility of life.
Attuning is active, it is a listening to the natural flow of life.
Through a consciously active attitude in life and by being aware of the resonance you are creating the correct attunement can be found. This has great benefits and helps you in finding Well Being.
Having the right attunement provides a powerful basis in life, as a result of which circumstances and external factors have less influence on one’s own state and this state will start to have a stimulating, creative influence on the circumstances of life. This orientation supports a process of transformation and leads to a liberating form of thinking which then leads to a liberated life.
The leading principles of Nâm Yoga
Nâm: the affirmation of that which you are in essence.
Yoga: orientation, research and discovery.
“Remember and Observe, these are the two guiding principles of the Nâm approach to human living. We should remember that we are of a oneness, the nature of which, as it is our nature, cannot be known by our thinking, which is one of the expressions of this oneness. Observe how everything that surrounds us, including our thoughts and our emotions, reflect this underlying oneness. Observe how, though we cannot know our essence, we can create our lives in accordance with this essence or in opposition to this essence. Observe how the former shapes Well-Being and the latter anxiety, disease, stress and failure. This is just an observation. “
‘Transforming daily life into a spiritual adventure’

Follow-up weekends: ‘Living in ever wider circles of Awareness’
In addition to the starters weekends, there are follow-up weekends for people who have already made acquaintance with Nâm Yoga through other activities provided by the Nâm Foundation or through the starters weekend. We use the book ‘Meaning & Joy of Nâm Yoga’ during the weekends. These weekends also make sense to repeat for deepening.

The origin of Nâm Yoga
Nâm Yoga is an expression of a current of human thought that is often called the Abrahamic tradition. It is a current of thought that as far as we know originates in the general area of India and spread via Iran, with the Zoroastrian thought, via the various Greek and Egyptian schools of thought, to the general area of the Middle East. From there it is spread through Northern Africa and Spain, and in various ways it became what is called philosophy. Acedemic philosophy however is often not presenting it.
