The Power of Sound
Sound is universally used as a gateway to meditation and religious ceremony. It shapes our reality and transforms the way we feel. Hearing is the first sense developed in utero and the last sense we lose. Listening is hard wired to many different layers of the brain. Sound can be a powerful alternative medicine, helping to unify our body, mind and spirit and promoting healing. Sound, applied correctly, stimulates the parasympathetic nervous system inviting a deep state of relaxation. Sound brings us back to the present, helping to make the incomprehensible comprehensible, serving as our roadmap to personal well being.
The harmonics of the metals of the Tibetan bells, of the gongs, combined with the wood of the kalimba, and the Japanese flute, with the ocean drum, the voice, the terracotta of the udu are some of the sounds that I use in my sound journeys as a bridge for self awareness and self discovery, as well as to promote harmony of body, mind and spirit.
