The creative & Healing Force of Sound
“The effect of sound is more complex, multidimensional, and influential to life than can be comprehended by even the greatest scientific minds. As mathematicians, theoretical physicists, astrophysicists, acoustic scientists, and healers continue their passionate pursuit—analyzing sound at the quantum, local, and cosmic level with the aid of supercomputers—we will begin to piece this intricate puzzle together.”
“We were invited to sit quietly in meditation with about twenty monks, who began a guttural chant, reciting the Om Mani Padme Hum mantra—repeated over and over. The deep rhythmical tones conducted through my muscles and bones shifted me into a mystical state as the mantra, which is said to contain all of the Buddha’s teachings, sonically entranced my mind and body…. As I closed my eyes, I felt a detachment from time. It seemed as though we were traveling in a different dimension with the monks, sensing oneness and compassion for the planet and its inhabitants.”
“I am fortunate to have the option of using quartz-crystal bowls or antique Tibetan hammered (multi-metal) singing bowls. The crystal bowls have a purer-toned clearing and energizing feel,whereas the metal bowls possess greater character and an inherent wisdom from over a century of use.”
