Sri Shyam-ji Bhatnagar
From an early age, Shyam-ji learned mantras at home. At 13 he met his guru who taught him the science of sound. His interest in sound caused him to associate with India's greatest musicians, artists, philosophers and yogis. In 1960 he migrated to the US and in 1967 he developed Chakra PsychologyTM based on the ancient concept of the Chakras (subtle energy centres). He is the founder of InnerTuning TherapyTM which is based on Chakra Psychology. He has a remarkable voice and the subtlety of his tones and overtones has helped thousands of people around the world, both therapeutically and spiritually. His mastery of the tamboura (an ancient gourd and string instrument) provides a moving accompaniment to his voice and the opportunity to hear him chant and play is an unforgettable experience for all that are sound-sensitive.
Shyam Bhatnagar, a spiritual practitioner living in the U.S., had heard Pandit Pran Nath in Dehra Dun many years earlier, and was knowledgeable about the mastery and spiritual content of his music. In 1968, he introduced tapes of Pandit Pran Nath’s singing to American composer, La Monte Young, and visual artist, Marian Zazeela. Young and Zazeela were deeply impressed with the exquisite expression and mastery of Pandit Pran Nath’s singing and worked with Shyam Bhatnagar to organize his first trip to the U.S.

This unique system divides each chakra into seven micro-chakras, each embodying characteristics of the main chakra with which it corresponds, as well as the particular element it resonates with. As our energy flows down the right side of the body and up the left side, we tap into this energy through the micro-chakras, which serve as maps through which our individuality expresses itself. How much of the energy is available to us is entirely governed by the degree that each micro-chakra is opened or blocked. Knowledge of micro-chakra blockages and their effects can enable us to tap into our own potential for both psychological well-being and expanded awareness. In this introductory evening Sri Shyam-ji will elucidate the basic grammar of Chakra Psychology and teach us how to use flowing note melodies precisely to "tune" our chakras to enhance our health and accelerate our spiritual growth.
> The chakras are, according to the ancient teachings of India's Yogis and Ayurvedic Physicians, the subtle energy centres of the body. They can also be viewed as seven minds, each with its own desires. The flow of energy through our chakras and the body's main channels has a tremendous effect on our health and personality. Sound was one of the primary tools used by the yogic tradition to unblock and harmonise the chakras, and it developed into an extraordinarily sophisticated art. Shyam-ji Bhatnagar is the one of the great Naada Yogis (ie a master of the use of sound for healing and spiritual cultivation) working in the west.
Inspired by the ancient wisdom of the Chakras, Shyam-ji Bhatnagar developed Chakra PsychologyÏ and InnerTuningÏ Therapy. This profound insight into the role of Chakra Rhythms on the human psyche, led Shyam-ji to design a simple seven-step programme that attunes the individual with the cosmic flow of energy through the Chakras. The main tool for InnerTuningÏ is the use of sound. Because of its sacred nature, sound not only has therapeutic value but also spiritually elevates the individual. Using the precise sounds of InnerTuningÏ, hundreds of practitioners have learned to overcome the debilitating effects of a variety of negative emotions including anger, anxiety, fears, feelings of inferiority, insomnia, etc.
