Dr. Joseph Michael Levry is a scholar, composer, author and international speaker, whose universal message brings together the spiritual healing traditions of the East and West. An engineer by training, Dr. Levry earned both his Bachelor’s and Master’s degree of Science in Industrial Engineering at the Polytechnic Institute of New York and also holds a Doctor of Philosophy in Metaphysical Science. As a scholar, Dr. Levry seamlessly joins ancient eastern wisdom, mysticism, and healing practices such as meditation, breath work and yoga, with revelatory western science, mathematics, modern medicine and metaphysics. Through his music, lectures and writings, Dr. Levry has changed the lives of hundreds of thousands of people with his unifying message of harnessing the deep healing power of unconditional love, global peace and embracing service to others. Dr. Levry led more than 3,000 brilliant young minds from over 80 countries as a keynote speaker at the United Nations headquarters in New York City, during the IMUNA’s 46th annual National High School Model United Nations Conference. He was commended by the Santa Monica Chamber of Commerce as a “Global Visionary” and “Local Leader” for both his international and local contributions to the community. Dr. Levry was featured by CNN as an authentic voice and top influencer amongst stars like Jay-Z and Beyonce, Sean “Diddy” Combs and Common for setting the agenda for global culture and leading the health and wellness movement, particularly in the black community. CNN host and commentator, Van Jones, highlighted Dr. Levry among prominent world figures working to improve the state of physical and mental health during the Covid-19 crisis and beyond. Dr. Levry was a guest speaker at the #MAYDAY 2020 synchronized meditation and prayer event, alongside Reverend Michael Beckwith, Tony Robbins, Deepak Chopra, Marianne Williamson, Martin Luther King Jr. III, Sadhguru and other spiritual leaders, artists and influencers. Dr. Levry is the leader of the #LoveHeals Movement, a global broadcast and healing meditation event dedicated to positively shifting human consciousness by harnessing the healing power of unconditional love. Thousands of people from around the world joined Dr. Levry, Reverend Michael Beckwith, Shelley Zalis, Carolyn Murphy, Kelly Rutherford, Toño Esquinca, along with other thought leaders, artists and influencers for the inaugural online event. Grammy Award winning Swedish singer, Lisa Ekdahl, and award winning Russian singer and songwriter, Katya Lel, also took part in the global movement and added their vocals to the original Love Heals song, produced and performed by Davina Leone. Katya Lel and Dr. Levry collaborated on the award-winning album, Vibrations of Love. Dr. Levry addressed a high level group of entrepreneurs at the February 2021 mastermind with Carlos Master Munoz, speaking about how the business leader of the 21st century must rely upon inner wisdom and spiritual principles while possessing the qualities of integrity, vision, authenticity and a high level of consciousness in order to apply intuitive intelligence to solve business problems and avoid costly mistakes. From leading massive Global Gatherings for Peace and Healing, to ground-breaking work in music scientifically acknowledged to heal, to empowering youth from elementary to university levels with impactful programs and transformational lectures world-wide, Dr. Levry is putting into action a universal message of healing and peace for today’s world.
In a recent study, neuroscientists at Memorial Sloan Kettering Cancer Center in New York City, have used selections from Dr. Levry’s Healing Beyond Medicine music series to reduce pain in children undergoing cancer treatment. These pilot findings were published in the Journal of Pediatric Oncology and Hematology, and an additional grant was issued for continued study. The results of this research were first presented by Dr. Mahiuddin Ahmed at a 2018 East Hampton New York event led by Dr. Levry, and graciously hosted by actress and supermodel Carolyn Murphy and celebrity hair colorist Michael Canalé. The event was also attended by actor and UN Environment Goodwill Ambassador, Adrian Grenier and ONDA founder, Luca Del Bono (BELLA Magazine, Times Square Chronicles).
Over the past eight years Dr. Levry has led hundreds of thousands of people around the world in massive Global Gatherings for Peace and Healing Superclasses. Since the first superclass in 2011, attendance has grown exponentially: 12,000 people participated in 2011 (Zócalo, Fox News, Vanguardia, Spirit Voyage); 15,000 people in 2012 (Revolution Monument, Reuters, LA Yoga, Spiegel, Tages Anzeiger, ITN, Namaskar: A Voice for the Yoga Community of Asia); 21,000 people in 2014 (Angel of Independence,); and 100,000 people, in-person and online, participated in 2015 (Angel of Independence, LA Yoga, Vanguardia, Santa Monica Mirror). The most recent event held in Zócalo Square in Mexico City on November 26th, 2017 united 318,000 people in person and around the world via an internationally televised uninterrupted Broadcast by Televisa (Yoga Journal, Yoga Journal Singapore, Huffington Post). The Government of Mèxico City was so moved by the “positive result of the people who attended”, that free weekly yoga classes are now offered every Sunday at the Angel of Independence Monument. The Global Gatherings for Peace and Healing superclasses aim to contribute to peace and healing through the power of global community, positive human intention and focused meditation.
Dr. Levry’s vast body of educational material is evidence of his 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. Dr. Levry is the CEO and founder of Rootlight, Inc., a publishing and production company. He is also the creator of Naam Yoga and the Harmonyum Healing System (The Luxonomist). On October 24, 2014, the mayor of Santa Monica, Pam O’Connor, in an official commendation from the City of Santa Monica, recognized Naam Yoga LA founded by Dr. Levry, for its positive contribution to the welfare of the community through its community classes providing personalized care and vital healing to individuals affected by cancer, autism/ASD, diabetes and other health concerns (See Commendation in the Contributions section). Dr. Levry’s extensively developed curriculum, in addition to his seven books translated into multiple languages, serve as the primary knowledge base for students. In the field of music Dr. Levry has produced over 45 albums comprised of mathematically produced healing vibrations which have been the subject of countless testimonials. He has personally consulted over 90,000 people in areas of health, family, psychological well-being and career advancement.

Scientific Breakthrough in Music and Cancer Research
Neuroscientists at the Memorial Sloan Kettering Cancer Center in New York City have used music from the Healing Beyond Medicine Music series created by Dr. Joseph Michael Levry to reduce pain in children being treated for a rare form of cancer, subsequently reducing the need for larger doses of medication during treatment. These pilot findings were so substantial that the study was published in the Journal of Pediatric Oncology and Hematology and an additional grant was issued for continued study. As mentioned above, the results of this extraordinary research were first presented at a 2018 East Hampton New York event at The Ross School led by Dr. Levry, and graciously hosted by actress and supermodel Carolyn Murphy and celebrity hair colorist Michael Canalé. The event was also attended by actor and UN Environment Goodwill Ambassador, Adrian Grenier and ONDA founder, Luca Del Bono (BELLA New York Magazine, Times Square Chronicles).
Mahuiddin Ahmed PhD, shared the results of this research on the power of sound meditation:
“In a small pilot study at Memorial Sloan Kettering Cancer Center, my colleague Dr. Sonia Sequeira and I have shown that the sound meditation found in Naam can be used to provide acute pain relief in children undergoing experimental cancer treatments and to significantly reduce the need for pain medication. With these encouraging results, we now have a grant from the hospital to conduct a first of its kind randomized controlled trial to see how these same techniques can affect pain, anxiety and outcome for pediatric patients undergoing major surgeries as part of their cancer care.”
One of the tracks used in the study contains an ancient combination of healing sounds precisely arranged with the therapeutic melody of Pachelbel’s Canon. The classical Canon was discovered to have a perfectly symmetrical geometric pattern by Alissa Crans, associate professor of mathematics at Loyola Marymount University, for which she won the National Merten M. Hasse Prize1. Fascinatingly, this type of symmetry can be found in nature, from the shape of a snowflake, to the body of a starfish and even in the conformation of DNA molecules during protein synthesis. Furthermore, according to a study conducted at the Monash University in Australia, the simple act of listening to Pachelbel’s Canon completely prevented increases in anxiety, blood pressure, and heart rate in the midst of being exposed to cognitive stressors2. Preliminary findings based on the work of Dr. Goldberger of Harvard Medical School also suggest that patients’ heart rhythms became more organized and improved after listening to this healing melody3. What is unique is that Dr. Levry’s unique musical formula magnifies the healing benefits of Pachelbel’s Canon using sacred words and melodic elements, that contain mathematically defined tones and meter, thereby creating a totally new musical combination that directly supports the healing process in a very powerful way.

Scientists from Sloan-Kettering Institute are studying the health benefits of sound meditation on a global scale
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.
“Spirituality must be used as an instrument for greater good. The best way
to express our spirituality is by serving others and making a difference
in the world. Spirituality is about helping others, more than just
getting ahead ourselves. When someone falls apart we must extend
a helping hand, along with our kindness, our compassion, and our
unconditional love. Our spiritual practice must cause us to
become a burning candle which lights the path for others. We
must go beyond the illusion of separateness so as to realize
that we are all interconnected. Whatever our beliefs, we must seek
to be instruments of love, peace and light, so that we may be a
force for good in this world.”
Founder of Naam Yoga and Shakti Naam Yoga
Naam Yoga (Naam) was founded in 2006 by Dr. Levry as a universal system for self-healing that could be practiced and enjoyed by all ages and fitness levels. After years of extensive research and continuous exposure to many ancient mystical traditions and yogic sciences, Dr. Levry united what he felt to be the most efficacious and therapeutic tools for self-healing under the single practice of Naam. The word Naam itself is synonymous with divine sound current. More than just a style of yoga, Naam is the manifestation of Dr. Levry’s lifelong desire to make true and lasting tools for self-healing easily accessible to people from all walks of life. In 2011, Dr. Levry merged a rare and secret practice of Himalayan origin, called Sukshma Vyayama, with Naam to form what is known today as Shakti Naam. The deep healing wisdom found within Shakti Naam dates as far back as Patanjali who is said to have written the Yoga Sutras and is considered to be the father of yoga. Another core component of Shakti Naam is mystical Kabbalah, known as the “mathematics of spirituality”. The merging of major world traditions, through the practice of Shakti Naam, is a major historic achievement as it 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 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. On October 24, 2014, the mayor of Santa Monica, Pam O’Connor, in an official commendation from the City of Santa Monica, recognized Naam Yoga LA founded by Dr. Levry, for its positive contribution to the welfare of the community through its community classes providing personalized care and vital healing to individuals affected by cancer, autism/ASD, diabetes and other health concerns. Under Dr. Levry’s direction, Naam LA’s outreach program, which is known as Giving Naam, has served over 20,350 individuals through community outreach classes in the last seven years, all offered for free, or by donation, in the area of Santa Monica alone.
At the United Nations headquarters in New York City, as part of IMUNA’s 46th annual National High School Model United Nations Conference (#NHSMUN), Dr. Joseph Michael Levry led more than 3,000 brilliant young minds from over 80 countries in a series of captivating and engaging lectures, giving the leaders of tomorrow practical tools for success, energy management and confidence. As a keynote speaker, Dr. Levry shared empowering wisdom to help these gifted students make a positive difference in their communities. He emphasized the power of service and lighting the path for others, as a way of brightening one’s own path in life. These inspiring words resonated deeply with the youth who are eager to face the world’s challenges as they prepare to serve the world through their unique talents and aspirations.
This is in alignment with NHSMUN’s approach of challenging its delegates to experience the power of generosity and service in problem solving by becoming involved in service-learning projects both before and during the global conferences. As part of the event, the United Nations exposes students to government and international affairs experts, UN humanitarian program directors and celebrity advocates. It invites students to discover their future as true global citizens, by giving them an unparalleled opportunity to experience the theory and practice of international relations and global issue-solving through its intensive guided simulation platform. Not only is the NHSMUN the world’s premier model UN conference, it is the largest national high school conference in the world.
Dr. Levry Lectures at The University of the Western Cape in Cape Town, South Africa
During a recent retreat led by Dr. Levry in Cape Town, South Africa, which brought together hundreds of students worldwide, participants were pleased to include in their retreat a visit to students at the University of the Western Cape where a lecture, “Spiritual Technology for the Brain and For Real Life”, was given by Dr. Levry. The University of the Western Cape has a history of creative struggle against oppression, discrimination and disadvantage. This unique lecture was geared toward sharing tools and techniques with university students to help them successfully manage issues faced by young people today such as information overload, high suicide rates, feelings of isolation caused by social media, stress, depression and even drug misuse. The lecture room was brimming with over 300 in attendance. Students learned movements to reduce stress and depression, practiced breathwork to improve memory, focus and clarity, and were shown techniques to build self-confidence. The class in the Western Cape was so well-received by university officials and students alike that other universities around the world and in the United States are opening their doors to welcome similar presentations in their respective areas.
The Profound and Far Reaching Healing Impact of the Prayer of Love, Peace and Light by Dr. Levry Upon Children
It gives the heart joy to see a third grade class from a children’s group home in Colombia doing the prayer of Love Peace and Light. Dr. Levry’s beloved student, Dana Abraham, has written a book called “In The Arms Of The Grandmother Tree,” which contains the Prayer of Love, Peace and Light. The book has already traveled around the world and is also being utilized in foster care and children’s and teen group homes, low-performing elementary schools, domestic violence shelters and community centers to help children connect with their inner voices to heal themselves and thrive in our changing world. “In The Arms Of The Grandmother Tree” is a philanthropic project intended to make the book accessible to children globally. Below is footage of children in an orphanage in Colombia reciting the Prayer of Love, Peace and Light from her book, with the help of their teacher who has created a deeply moving meditation to accompany the prayer in Spanish. Next to it is footage of beautiful school children in Uganda learning the Prayer of Love, Peace and Light from Erin Toppenberg, another devoted student of Dr. Levry, who was instrumental in helping “In the Arms of the Grandmother Tree” reach international audiences. Erin is the Director and one of the co-founders of The Waterbearers, whose campaigns have helped to fund clean water initiatives through strategic partners in 26 countries, impacting hundreds of thousands of lives.

Global Gatherings for Peace and Healing led by Dr. Levry
Born out of his lifelong desire to provide people from all walks of life with authentic tools for self-healing and to make a difference in the lives of others, Dr. Levry has implemented annual Global Gatherings for Peace and Healing, also known as Naam Yoga Superclasses for Peace. While Naam Yoga has helped thousands of people to heal personally on an individual level, the Global Gatherings for Peace and Healing offer Naam Yoga to all of humanity in the service of world peace and global healing. These massive global meditation classes are free public events dedicated to peace.
The sixth and most recent Global Gathering for Peace and Healing took place on November 26th, 2017, where 318,000 people united in the massive Zócalo square of Mexico City, online around the globe, and via live television broadcast, to pray for love, peace and light and healing for the entire world. The seed for the first global gathering was planted in 2010 and the events have continued to build, flourish and attract an ever-increasing amount of participants and media exposure each year. The second superclass took place in Zocalo Square in 2011 bringing together 12,000 people. The third superclass occurred in 2012 at the Revolution Monument and was attended by 15,000 people and the fourth class took place at the Angel of Independence in 2014 and had an unprecedented 21,000 people in attendance on-site. In the fifth 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.
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, Huffington Post, Der Tagesanzeiger, Vanguard and Reforma Corazon De Mexico. 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. The government of 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.

The 2017 Global Gathering for Peace and Healing (Naam Yoga Superclass) united over 318,000 people in person, online, and via live television broadcast in the historic and massive Zocalo Square of Mexico City. This is the largest Global Gathering for Peace and Healing to date. These global events use the universal healing technology of Naam Yoga, combining Naam or mantra meditation that uses harmony, rhythm and breath in precise mathematical formulas designed to recalibrate the body, open the heart and unite all participants for one intention-peace.
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.
Divine Spiritual Alchemy Retreat with Dr. Levry in Israel and Praying for Peace at the Wailing Wall (click to view highlights)
Dr. Levry’s work is a testament to the core principles of Divine Spiritual Wisdom 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 Divine Spiritual Wisdom 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.“
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 music was 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 45 different compilation healing meditation albums that are being used by people from all walks of life to maintain elevated states of health and wellbeing.
Global Gatherings for Peace and Healing (Naam Yoga Superclasses for Peace)
True to his vision for global healing and world peace, Dr. Levry implemented Global Gatherings for Peace and Healing, massive global meditations that unite people from every walk of life for one intention-peace.

Dr. Joseph Michael Levry In His Own Words
We invite you to watch this beautiful film, which tells the story of Naam, from its origins in the East to its present renaissance in the West, and the hope it carries for all mankind. This mini-documentary was selected to premiere at the Rincón International Film Festival, the largest and most celebrated film festival in Puerto Rico – now in its 11th year!
Dr. Joseph Michael Levry is the author of seven 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.

Healing Beyond Medicine Music Series
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 over 45 sacred music albums 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.
