 'Sound Meditation in a Nut Shell'

A sound meditation is a form of sound therapy where gongs, singing bowls and other instruments are played in a therapeutic way. It produces a resonance and subtle rhythm throughout the body. It's complex harmonics create an acoustic ocean of sound waves and energy flow, which can be experienced as a form of meditation and relaxation.

All you have to do is to lie comfortably and close your eyes and relax. Bring along a comfortable mat to lie on for 30 minutes, blanket, cushion, eye pillow (there are 16 available for your usage) and dress comfortably.

I will begin softly, increasing the volume as the session progresses. There is no fixed rhythm therefore the brain is unable to follow. Sound therapy works through entrainment, which is the law of physics. Entrainment occurs when two or more oscillating bodies lock into phase so that they vibrate in harmony with one another.

Theta brainwaves frequencies are most often where the sound meditation will take you. Theta waves occur during dreaming sleep - or REM (rapid eye movement) sleep, and also during deep meditation. It is helpful for people suffering from insomnia, stress, tension and general anxiety.

  • “Since the human body is over seventy percent water and since sound travels five times more efficiently through water than through air, sound frequency stimulation directly into the body is a highly efficient means for total body stimulation, especially at the cellular level. Direct stimulation of living cellular tissue using sound frequency vibration has shown marked cellular metabolism and therefore a possible mobilisation of a cellular healing response”. - Jeffrey Thompson, Director of the Centre for Neuro-acoustic Research, California Institute for Human Science.Speakers/Performers

After a continuous of playing, I start to wind down and play gently fading away to nothing. I recommend to take it easy for the rest of the day and drink plenty of water.
