Customize your sound environment for a better quality of life • Shows how to use music and sound to reduce stress, enhance learning, and improve performance • Provides detailed guidelines for musicians and health care professionals • Includes a new 75-minute CD of psychoacoustically designed classical music What we hear, and how we process it, has a far greater impact on our daily living than we realize. From the womb to the moment we die we are surrounded by sound, and what we hear can either energize or deplete our nervous systems. It is no exaggeration to say that what goes into our ears can harm us or heal us. Joshua Leeds--a pioneer in the application of music for health, learning, and productivity--explains how sound can be a powerful ally. He explores chronic sensory overload and how auditory dysfunction often results in difficulties with learning and social interactions. He offers innovative techniques designed to invigorate auditory skills and provide balanced sonic environments. In this revised and updated edition of The Power of Sound, Leeds includes current research, extensive resources, analysis of the maturing field of soundwork and a look at the effect of sound on animals. He also provides a new 75-minute CD of psycho­acoustically designed classical music for a direct experience of the effect of simplified sound on the nervous system. With new information on how to use music and sound for enhanced health and productivity, The Power of Sound provides readers with practical solutions for vital and sustained well-being.

The first book to explain from both scientific and spiritual perspectives the healing and transformative powers of harmonics. • Includes practical exercises demonstrating how to use sound in healing and meditation, including "Vowels as Mantras" and "Overtoning". • Describes how harmonics can be used as "sonic yoga" for meditation and deep relaxation to enhance energy. • Author won 1999 Visionary Awards for Best Healing-Meditation Album. The Mystery Schools of Egypt, Greece, and Rome understood that vibration is the fundamental active force in the universe and developed specific chants and tones for healing the mind, body, and spirit and achieving altered states of consciousness. Overtone chanting--also called vocal harmonics--is the ability of the human voice to create two or more notes at the same time. Healing Sounds explains how to perform vocal harmonics and experience their transformative and curative powers. An internationally recognized master teacher, the author provides diverse examples of sound healing systems incorporating both mystical and medical traditions--from Tibetan monks' use of tantric harmonics to Dr. Alfred Tomatis' use of Gregorian chanting--and their capacity to affect us on all levels. With many easy-to-follow exercises, Healing Sounds is the first book to show from both the scientific and spiritual viewpoints how to use the transformative power of sound for healing on physical, emotional, mental, and spiritual levels.

From a leading neuroscientist and practitioner of Ayurvedic medicine, rigorous scientific investigation of sound as energy frequency, showing readers how to use its powers for healing and wellness. Why does a baby’s cry instantaneously flood a mother’s body with a myriad of stress hormones? How can a song on the radio stir up powerful emotions, from joy to anger, regret to desire? Why does sound itself evoke such primal and deeply felt feelings? A vibration that travels through air, water and solids, sound is produced by all matter, and is a fundamental part of every species’ survival. But there is a hidden power within sound that has yet to be investigated by modern medicine. Sound Medicine takes readers on a journey through the structure of the mouth, ears, and brain to understand how sound is translated from acoustic vibrations into meaningful neurological impulses. Renowned neuroscientist and Aryuvedic expert Dr. Kulreet Chaudrahy explains how different types of sound impact the human body and brain uniquely, and explores the physiological effects of sound vibration, from altering mood to healing disease. Blending ancient wisdom and modern science, Dr. Choudry traces the history of sound therapy and the use of specific mantras from ancient Aryuvedic texts, to explain the biology of sound as frequency and its therapeutic applications for common ailments. Sound Medicine offers practical, step-by-step lessons for using music and mantras, whether you’re a beginner or searching for a more advanced practice. Bringing together Vedic mythology and medical therapy, this marriage of the ancient mantras and modern neuroscience can help you heal—and keep you well in body, mind, and spirit.

Since 1991, Dr. Mitchell Gaynor has been achieving remarkable results by integrating music, vocalization, breathing, and meditation techniques in his work with patients. In The Healing Power of Sound, he presents his sound-based techniques for self-healing—techniques that anyone can use, whether faced with a life-threatening disease or simply seeking relief from the stresses of daily life. Numerous studies have demonstrated the health benefits of music: it can lower blood pressure and heart and respiratory rates; reduce cardiac complications; increase the immune response; and boost our natural opiates. Gaynor shows how, when integrated as part of a mind-body-spirit approach to wellness, music can play a significant part in maintaining a healthy lifestyle or in healing serious disease. The Healing Power of Sound includes twelve exercises involving breathing, meditation, and "toning"—using pure vocal sound to resolve tension, release emotion, and spur the healing process—that can be used by anyone to improve health and quality of life.

Partner with Heaven to Release the Sound of Breakthrough! The sound of the roar of the Lion of the Tribe of Judah is being released upon this generation. It will change and restore everything it touches right down to the core structure or subatomic level. Every generation from the beginning of time also contained its own sound. Once released, the Roar of the Lord shattered the opposition, unfroze the inhabitants of the land, and turned hearts of stone into flesh and blood. That sound created breakthrough, which enabled the transformation of the regions in which they lived, revealing the intentions and purposes of God. Now, in our time, a generation must arise and wake up from its slumber to release the fresh new sound of heaven. —Jeff Jansen As you learn to recognize and release the Furious Sound of Glory, you will witness the power of Heaven break into your life—transforming impossible situations, overturning injustice, healing disease, delivering the oppressed, and creating an atmosphere for personal revival and corporate awakening! “[The Furious Sound of Glory] will surely be used as a textbook for a hungry generation looking for instruction on how to shape the course of world history.” —Bill Johnson, author of When Heaven Invades Earth “…This book will help unleash Heaven on Earth through the Spirit of Revival.” —James W. Goll, author of The Seer “...a clarion call for radical revivalists to rise up in this epic transition and take our rightful place on earth.” —Kris Vallotton, author of School of the Prophets

Both science and spirituality agree that every particle of matter, every phenomenon we experience, is a form of resonance or vibration. The human voice is quite literally a mouthpiece of this truth; there is no form of expression more personal, more tied to our identities, than our voices. With simple inspirational exercises, this book by renowned voice teacher Chloe Goodchild gives readers the tools to guide them in a process of sound healing and soul communication that is guaranteed to open the heart and restore forgiveness, compassion, and interconnectedness between individuals and in their communities. At the heart of every human journey exists the longing to feel at home in one's self and in the world. In a unique response to meet this longing, Chloe Goodchild invites you on a compelling adventure of self-discovery and creative fulfillment through a direct experience of your own authentic voice--the voice of your personal authority, the song of your soul. Going beyond traditional vocal training guides, this book will appeal to anyone wishing to encounter themselves at a primal level through the medium of the voice.
