Mesmerizing Sounds

Some of you may have heard of or run across the YouTube videos of ASMR, which stands for autonomous sensory meridian response.  If you haven't, go search it on you tube and check it out.  It is a good sample of how sounds can create a strong relaxation response or what some even describe as a tingling sensation in the body.

On this Thursday (see post below), I will be conducting a Sound Bath using different harmonic instruments that help to put your mind/body/spirit into a relaxation response.  When we get out of our head and busy mind, good things begin to happen as we start to feel more centered.  Here is a link for a two and half minute sample of mesmerizing sounds from four Burmese Whirling Gongs.  I hope you will enjoy them!



Remember, if you would like to experience a Sound Bath, check out the post listed below this one about my event on this Thursday, starting at 7 pm at The Soul Purpose in Swansea Ma.

Introduction to Sound Therapy


Last weekend I dusted off my public speaking skills and ventured outside of my psychotherapy office to present to healers, coaches and therapists at the Autumn Energy Conference in Worcester, Ma.  My topic was "Introduction To Sound Therapy."  Kind of like a Wine tasting event, everyone got a sampling of different harmonic instruments (didgeridoo, Himalayan Singing Bowls, flutes, drums and even a indigenous rattle).

If you haven't experienced a group Sound Meditation or commonly referred to as Sound Bath (and you are into stress reduction and personal transformation), then you are in for a treat!  After my talk, everyone settled in, got comfortable and experienced my facilitation of a 30 minute Sound Meditation.

I have upped my sound game since attending Gong Camp hosted by Dr. Mitch Nur in October.   Two gongs and three Burmese Whirling Gong (bells) found there way into my car and heading back home to Massachusetts.  These additions to my extensive singing bowl collection have really got me excited and have added great depth and quality to the Sound Bath experience.   The feedback was very positive and reported results even surprised me in some instances.

Here is a link to the Autumn Energy Conference Sound Bath I performed in October.  To get the full effect, a good pair of headphones are helpful. Click here for the The Sound Bath.

I will be looking for more opportunities to facilitate Sound Meditation experiences with my new ensemble of bronze harmonic instruments.

You may be wonder how all of this sound stuff works.  I could talk about brainwave entrainment, hemisyncronicity, shifting your nervous system into a rest and digest parasympathetic state and even more brain nerd stuff (which I really love).  But...

Sometimes a metaphor can communicate in terms that are easier to understand.  Imagine that your energy can be compared to a single string on a guitar.  When it is out of tune it doesn't sound or feel good.  When you turn the knob to tighten or loosen the string you can almost feel your body relax as it drop into the right note.  Imagine that our mind/body/spirit is similar to that guitar string.  When it is to tight with stress/anxiety or to loose with little energy or even depression, your energy is out of alignment or out of tune.

Sound Therapy works with your energetic tuning knob to get flow and your internal frequency back into a harmonic state.   Of course this isn't magic and sometimes people get immediate results and for others it can take many sessions to get the outcomes they are seeking (depending on the problem and circumstances).

You might be getting the impression that I bang on a drum or playing singing bowls in all of my session.  But that isn't the case.  In my counseling practice, I customize the therapy in collaboration with each individual.  So often that means each session look very different depending upon what folk are looking for and what is needed for that moment.  Sound Therapy is one of many tools that I can use to help clients find relief from their symptoms and move forward to a place of growth and thriving.
