Deva Premal 21 Day

Soothe High Anxiety With Deva Premal & Miten’s Free 21-Day Mantra Meditation Journey

Launching Tuesday, September 10, In Tandem With Their 25-City Tour


Best-selling chant artists Deva Premal & Miten are offering a free 21-Day Mantra Meditation Journey beginning Tuesday, September 10th through, a website offering coaching in personal growth that has presented similar programs from Oprah Winfrey and Deepak Chopra. The series launches in conjunction with Deva & Miten’s 25-City North American tour to promote their newest album, A Deeper Light (April 23rd, White Swan Records). When the course first ran for free in April-May 2013, over 68,000 individuals from 204 countries participated. White Swan Records is predicting even higher numbers for the second run, which will feature both English and Spanish versions of the program. 

If you have ever taken a yoga class or experimented with any kind of alternative stress-reduction therapy, from detox to dynamic meditation, pilates to acupuncture, chances are you have heard the music of Deva Premal & Miten. Partners in life and music for over twenty years, their unique renditions of ancient mantras are played in yoga studios and healing rooms everywhere, and their music has touched the hearts of millions of listeners.

At the heart of their music that has earned Deva and Miten such widespread admiration are mantras: energetic sound formulas, created thousands of years ago by the rishis (wise men) of ancient India, who understood the power of sound as a pathway to enlightenment. Over the course of this three-week program, Deva & Miten will share a new mantra each day, explaining its meaning, chanting it with the participant and meditating on the mantra’s essential energetic quality.

A program of 21 days provides the possibility for real and lasting change to occur, in body, mind and spirit. Among the program’s key benefits:

– Chanting charges and revitalizes us on a physical, cellular level. As we chant, the throat opens and we begin to breathe more deeply, activating a healing wave of prana (life energy).

– Chanting also creates changes in our energy bodies. For example, as our voices open, we experience enhanced expression, communicating our deepest intentions with simple clarity and power.

– Repeating each mantra 108 times takes us beyond our usual boundaries. We begin to lose our sense of time and ego – a feeling of ecstasy arises as the heart opens.

– The mind stills naturally and we arrive at a deep state of inner relaxation and peace.

The 21-Day Mantra Meditation Journey begins Tuesday, September 10th and will be available free of charge for the first three weeks, and then available for purchase as both a download and an app after the initial three-week period of free access ends. It is an auspicious gift from the beloved yoga and chant music icons, and a great opportunity to learn and begin a meditation and chant practice with guided meditations available each day.

This unique program is timed to coincide with Deva Premal & Miten’s25-City North American Tour, which will promote their newest album, A Deeper Light, by Boulder, CO-based White Swan Records. On the new record, Deva and Miten intertwine their trademark Sanskrit mantras with sensual, dub-inspired grooves. Deva’s distinctive vibrato focuses the hypnotic vibe, heightening the inherent power of the sacred chants she intones. This refreshing new work brings a vibrant, sensual energy to the world’s oldest devotional music – and presents a fresh direction for the enduringly popular artists.

The producers – Miten, along with Vancouver-based Joby Baker (Toni Childs, Cowboy Junkies, Alex Cuba) and Dutch keyboardist Maneesh de Moor — went for a very warm, organic sound, requiring the artists to take a new approach. Rather than weeks of solo sessions and bouncing tracks back and forth via the internet, all the musicians – Nepalese bansuri flute maestro Manose, de Moor on keyboards and Richard Moody on violin and viola — spent two weeks together in Baker’s intimate studio, working as a group in real time on every track to get a sound and a vibe that was much more live than studied. Almost all the instruments used were acoustic, with live drums, bass, piano, guitar, and violins. Miten comments, “Everything ‘moved air’ – and that’s what makes the music breathe.”

In these turbulent times, Deva and Miten’s chilled out Sanskrit chants offer something of a musical balm to calm the nerves and nourish the tortured spirit. This authentic and honest expression of love and commitment to a spiritual path is what sets them apart from their musical contemporaries.

In Deva Premal and Miten’s view, “We see ourselves more as flame carriers of a 5,000 year old tradition than emotion-based musicians. The music we make is born out of a committed spiritual practice. We meditate — we investigate — and our music is a result of that experience. It’s more a case of life and death than entertainment!”

The 21-Day Mantra Meditation Journey with Deva Premal & Miten begins on Tuesday, September 10th.
