Brainwave entrainment

Brainwave entrainment

Brainwave entrainment is a method to stimulate the brain's electrical response to rhythmic sensory stimulation, such as pulsating light or sound.

Introduction of monaural or binaural beats with relatively small differentials induces specific brainwave states; such as meditation, relaxation, trance, sleep induction. Higher differential beats could enhance focus and raise brain activity.

The Octave and the Perfect fifth

The Octave and the Perfect fifth

An Octave and a Perfect Fifth are the most consonant combinations of tones I focus on.

Gongs and singing bowls can change your life!

Gongs and singing bowls can change your life!

I was IGNITED!  What followed was the arrival into my life of several bronze, nickel/silver, and titanium gongs plus several Himalayan healing singing bowls. Just as the entry of the power of gongs into my life had been completely unexpected, so was the rapidly kindled passion for searching to solve the mysterious drawing power of Himalayan singing bowls. 

Several of each of these transformative instruments came into my life just as a friend was dying with cancer.
