Dr. Kurt “Kailash” Bruder (Ph.D., M.Ed.) is communication scholar-teacher, trained psychotherapist, and sincere devotee. Unique among chant leaders and spiritual teachers for his penetrating insight into human motivation, interaction, and personal growth, Kailash is the author/recording artist of Following Sound into Silence: Chanting Your Way Beyond Ego into Bliss (2008, Hay House). Non-sectarian, intellectually satisfying, and exquisitely illustrated, this groundbreaking guide to devotional chanting is accompanied by a CD of 15 authentic mantras set to gorgeous music. This is the "one-stop resource" for chanters, "a beautifully designed and carefully written guide to Kirtan, Sound Yoga, and Mantra Practice" (David Newman/Durga Das). Steven Rosen, author of The Yoga of Kirtan, says that this book/CD "may be the standard work on this subject for years, if not centuries."
