Dr. Joseph Michael Levry is an author, composer, international speaker, producer of sacred music and dedicated teacher. In his work, Dr. Levry pursues his vision of providing humanity with tools for a healthy lifestyle, peace and happiness. His student base includes people from all backgrounds, age groups and spiritual orientations. The Santa Monica Chamber of Commerce commended Dr. Levry as a “Global Visionary” and “Local Leader” for both his international and local contributions to community.
Dr. Levry is realizing his life’s vision of reviving the primordial heart and spirit of humankind with a pure and effective body of knowledge that is referred to as Divine Spiritual Wisdom. He can be heard saying in many of his classes, courses and events, “It is our job to give hope to the hopeless, faith to the faithless and love to those without love.” Dr. Levry passionately devotes his life to presenting science and spirituality from a unified perspective that allows humanity to navigate the fluctuations of life through an expanded understanding of the immutable mathematical laws of nature through which the Divine operates. His early upbringing and educational background prepared him both in the mathematical sciences and in metaphysics, in essence, providing him with a sound understanding as to the fundamental questions concerning the nature of reality. He holds both a bachelor’s and master’s degree in Industrial Engineering from Polytechnic Institute in New York City, was groomed in early childhood by a pristine lineage of Rose-Croix Kabbalists as to the laws of metaphysics, and was awarded a Doctor of Philosophy (PhD) in Metaphysical Science from the Institute of Metaphysical Humanistic Science. Physics, quantum physics and metaphysics, alchemy and chemistry provide the theoretical framework for the mechanisms at work within Naam Yoga and the Harmonyum Healing System that Dr. Levry developed.
“It doesn’t matter how powerful you are. It doesn’t matter how
much money you have. It doesn’t matter how beautiful you
are. What matters is how much of a difference you can make in
other people’s lives. How many hearts can you open?”Dr. Joseph Michael Levry
Founder of Naam Yoga and Shakti Naam Yoga
In 2006, after decades of travelling, studying, exploring and implementing practices within various mystical traditions and yogic sciences, Dr. Levry merged what he observed to be the most healing and therapeutic applications for lasting health and wellbeing under the single discipline of Naam Yoga. This powerful form of yoga is a carefully selected treasury of the world’s finest healing arts and metaphysical principles, and a symbol of Dr. Levry’s lifelong mission to provide humanity with the purest, most sophisticated tools for self-healing. The discovery, documentation and preservation of ancient wisdom is generally classified as a branch of anthropology. Scholarship, spiritual mastery, ongoing exposure to authentic saints and guardians of spiritual wisdom and decades of experience and observation are necessary to successfully apply historical wisdom to the modern condition of humanity. Dr. Levry, through the keen lens of his academic and spiritual background, continually breathes new life into these vast and arcane traditions, rendering Naam Yoga a living body of knowledge. Naam Yoga represents the merging of Divine Spiritual Wisdom, various forms of Kundalini Yoga and Chinese medical philosophy. Additionally, in 2011, Dr. Levry officially merged the practice of Sukshma Vyayama, a rare and secret practice stemming from the Himalayas, with Naam to form what is known as Shakti Naam Yoga. This cohesive and intricate practice contains threads of wisdom deriving from several traditions dating as far back as Patanjali who is said to have written the Yoga Sutras and is considered to be the father of yoga. Historically, the Chinese and Indian civilizations traded technology and culture and their respective medicine and philosophies bear striking similarities. Divine Spiritual Wisdom, the mathematics of spirituality, was carried through Egypt, Arabia, Greece, Rome, Europe, Latin and North America and across the world. The merging of these major world traditions, through the practice of Shakti Naam Yoga, is a major historic achievement and provides an opportunity for the recognition that light and wisdom was held universally throughout the world by all peoples.
Founder of the Harmonyum Healing System
Dr. Levry is the founder of the Harmonyum Healing System, the psychotherapeutic application of Divine Spiritual Wisdom, also known as Bio-Metaphyscial Medicine. It is a transcendental healing system that addresses the innate relationship of the body and the mind. When there is an imbalance in the emotional or mental patterns, physical imbalance often follows. Harmonyum is a spiritual answer that addresses the unseen root of physical problems, awakening the self-healing capacity within an individual. Harmonyum can help one give up addictions by addressing the underlying roots of emotional and mental imbalances and has been effectively applied in addiction rehabilitation centers. As Christina Pabers PhD, L.Ac states in a treatise on the Harmonyum Healing System, “Harmonyum employs the ancient art of utilizing the acupuncture meridians via the body’s electromagnetic field.” The metaphysical medicine of Harmonyum which supports the brain and neuroendocrine system is one of the historical and outstanding contributions Dr. Levry has made to society.
Healing and Research Centers
In 2001 Dr. Levry founded Universal Force Healing Center in New York City, a 501©(3) not-for-profit organization dedicated to offering self-healing modalities to the public. In 2011 Dr. Levry redirected his efforts to Santa Monica and opened Naam Yoga LA, which became the new international headquarters for Naam Yoga. It is also a 501(c)3 not-for-profit organization whose mission resonates with Dr. Levry’s vision of empowering people to improve their lives. Under Dr. Levry’s direction, Naam Yoga LA’s outreach program, which is known as Giving Naam, has served over 60,000 individuals and held over 9,200 community outreach classes in the last four years, all offered for free, or by donation, in the area of Santa Monica alone. Both Naam Yoga LA and Giving Naam have been commended by the mayor of Santa Monica, Pam O’Connor, as a positive contribution to the city and Naam Yoga LA has been featured on Good Day LA.

Divine Spiritual Wisdom
Dr. Levry has personally consulted with more than 90,000 people, traveling extensively around the world for more than three decades. In addition to leading corporate lectures, retreats and consultations on how to apply Divine Spiritual Wisdom to business, he also serves local and international students. His efforts are inspiring new generations of Naam Yogis to share within their communities the knowledge which has transformed their own lives, resulting in the creation of over 10 Naam Yoga centers worldwide dedicated to making the self-healing technology of Divine Spiritual Wisdom readily available in their regions. This precious information was once only available to a select few. However, Dr. Levry believes that the time has come for people from all walks of life, all spiritual affiliations, and all ages to have free access to this timeless and pure technology. He has masterfully organized and refined a previously complex body of mystical knowledge into practical topics that are relevant to modern-day concerns such as healing disease, overcoming life-challenges, fertility, love relationships, financial wellbeing, mental and hormonal balance, graceful aging, stress reduction and physical fitness to name a few. This information is being offered through various trainings in response to the increased interest of a rapidly growing worldwide community. Trainings are available in Naam Yoga, Shakti Naam Yoga, the Harmonyum Healing System and the Divine Spiritual Wisdom of Birth & Beyond. Dr. Levry began hosting and developing these trainings in 2006 in the U.S., Europe and Latin America.
Superclasses for Peace
To date, Dr. Levry has led four Naam Yoga “superclasses” in Mexico City. In accordance with his philanthropic mission, these classes are dedicated to peace and held free of charge and are open to people from all walks of life. This tradition began in 2011 in Zocalo Square where Dr. Levry led the first class bringing together an estimated 12,000 people. He led the second event in 2012 at the Revolution Monument where the number of participants grew to 15,000. The third superclass took place in 2014 at the Angel of Independence and drew over 21,000 people. In the latest class on November 29th, 2015, an estimated combined number of 100,000 people attended in-person and online, making it the largest gathering of its kind in history. Dr. Levry holds that when a certain number of people come together in meditation, chanting Naam and holding the vision of peace, the impact is squared by the number of people present. This concept is supported by The Institute of the Noetic Sciences which states that by aligning the thinking of the square root of one percent of the population (roughly 8,000 people), mass consciousness can then be affected. Mexico City, inspired by the positive results of these superclasses, requested Naam Yoga classes be taught to the general public for free once a week.
Courses and Lectures
For over three decades Dr. Levry has lectured extensively in Europe (Czech Republic, England, France, Germany, Portugal, Spain, Sweden, Switzerland), in America (Alabama, Arizona, California, Georgia, Hawaii, Massachusetts, Miami, Minnesota, New Mexico, New York, Texas), in Latin America (Brazil and Mexico), Canada, Israel, Japan, New Zealand and West Indies.

Dr. Levry’s work is a testament to the core principles of Universal Kabbalah that he teaches. His teachings describe the inseparable relationship between all of nature and the individual through set mathematical formulas which describe the cycles of nature and how to master them. They offer a comprehensive model for the physiology of the brain, nervous and endocrine system and cardiovascular system supplemented by a complimentary model of psychology. They present a practical paradigm that enhances our understanding of the biology of nature and the structure of the universe. Historically, this body of wisdom represented the early archetypes of modern-day physics and chemistry. Dr. Levry presents a thorough curriculum that pairs intellectual understanding with ideals that promote happiness and psychological wellness. Compassion, service and positive thinking, actions, behaviors, language and perception are some of the essential practical tools contained therein. Dr. Levry holds that Universal Kabbalah is a practical philosophy dedicated to the beneficent evolution of humankind. He reminds his students that it is how many hearts one has touched and how many people one has uplifted through the course of a life time that brings lasting contentment.
“There is no wound of mind, heart, spirit & body
whether past or present, that cannot
be healed with unconditional Love.“Dr. Joseph Michael Levry
The Merging of Ancient Yogic Science with Kabbalah
The combining of ancient yogic science with Kabbalah is a major historical achievement: for the first time in history, Eastern yogic science is being paired with a Western mystical tradition. Not only has Dr. Levry brought these two systems together, he has simplified the Kabbalah from its previously intricate language so that it may be easily understood and applied to modern day life in a practical way.
The Advancement of Sound Meditation
Dr. Levry is a pioneer in the therapeutic application of mantra meditation coupled with healing music. His compositions are constructed using the ancient principles of psychotherapeutic mathematics. They present a practical application of the Golden Ratio, or Golden Proportion considered by many to be the most pleasing of all harmonic divisions found on Earth, for self-healing. In September 2015 at the International Scientific Meditation Conference 2015, results from the first significant study on sound meditation revealed that selections from Dr. Levry’s healing CDs were clinically shown to have an exceptionally positive impact in pain reduction in children being treated for cancer at Memorial Sloan Kettering Cancer Center in New York City. To date, Dr. Levry has produced over 40 different compilation healing meditation CDs that are being used by people from all walks of life to maintain elevated states of health and wellbeing.
Superclasses for Peace
Dr. Levry has led four global Naam Yoga Superclasses in Mexico City. These massive global meditation classes are free public events dedicated to peace. The first one took place in Zocalo Square in 2011 bringing together 12,000 people. The second class occurred in 2012 at the Revolution Monument and was attended by 15,000 people and the third class took place at the Angel of Independence in 2014 and had an unprecedented 21,000 people in attendance on-site. The fourth class, held at the Angel of Independence, made history with an estimated combined total of 100,000 people attending in-person and online via livestream simulcast on November 29, 2015. Leading media outlets from around the world from Asia to Europe to North and South America covered these historical events dedicated to peace, among them CNN, Fox News, Der Spiegel, Televisa, Der Tagesanzeiger, Vanguard and Reforma Corazon De Mexico. The Superclasses were also livestreamed. It is estimated that over thirty million people were able to follow these events thanks to this media coverage.

noise has never done any good.”Dr. Joseph Michael Levry
Travels and Exposure
Early Years Dr. Levry first encountered yoga at the age of 14 through his older sister who had begun a formal practice of Hatha yoga in France. He began to study the subject and while travelling in India, Asia, Israel and the West Indies, received training in several spiritual disciplines.

The massive content that is the fabric of this body of educational material is evidence of Dr. Levry’s life-long commitment to education, mentorship and research. Ten extensive certification courses and lifestyle programs emphasize scientific exploration into human anatomy, physiology, neurology and endocrinology and integrate those with the Eastern and Occidental metaphysical philosophy perspective of the body. Subjects range from fertility and prenatal health to optimization of the brain and nervous system, and extensive physical and spiritual applications pertaining to total wellness and specific health challenges. This extensively developed curriculum, in addition to his six books translated into multiple languages, serve as the primary knowledge base for students. In the field of music Dr. Levry has produced over 40 CDs comprised of mathematically produced healing vibrations which have been the subject of countless testimonials for their help in areas of health, family, psychological well-being and career advancement.
Dr. Joseph Michael Levry is the author of six books. They describe the practical application of Divine Spiritual Wisdom and offer self-healing techniques and meditations from Naam Yoga and Shakti Naam Yoga in addition to covering topics such as improved love relationships, natural healing remedies and insight into the true nature of disease and how to effect a lasting cure.

Dr. Levry selects mantras, based on the findings of his extensive research, that are particularly efficacious for the challenges of this age, in the production of his 37 sacred music CD series. These are masterfully crafted spiritual tools that link mantra to breath in powerful healing ratios (using the primordial mathematical laws of Divine Spiritual Wisdom) known to recalibrate the nervous system and promote the birth of new neurons in the brain (neurogenesis). They induce profound internal shifts that allow us to open our hearts and view life from an elevated perspective. Disease, emotional imbalance, financial challenges, stress, anxiety, mental imbalance and depression are a few of the common challenges these CDs can help to alleviate. For thousands of years, saints and sages have recommended the use of mantra (Naam) as a form of “mind medicine.” Indeed, they possessed the scientific understanding of the sacred permutation of sound through which mantra helps to transmute unhealthy patterns inhabiting the deep recesses of our consciousness. In essence, there are eighty-four reflex points in the upper palate that are massaged during chanting meditation which in turn stimulates the hypothalamus and then the pineal and pituitary glands, promoting the secretion of chemicals such as serotonin which are associated with feelings of wellbeing, peace and security. Today Dr. Levry’s creative work has yielded more than 153 tracks meant to enhance one’s overall wellbeing.
