Description

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 Soundsexplains 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 Soundsis 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.

MUSIC / HEALING "The creator of Dolphin Dreams and Chakra Chants recordings examines the purest form of therapeutic sound--harmonics--in his latest book, Healing Sounds. . . .His personal revelations and direct writing style make this an exceptional introduction to a fascinating field." --Whole Life Times Healing Sounds is the first book to express the scientific and spiritual viewpoints about how to use the transformative power of sound for healing on physical, emotional, mental, and spiritual levels. The Mystery Schools of Egypt, Greece, and Rome understood that vibration is the fundamental active force in the universe, and they 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, an innovative work in the field of sound healing and vibrational medicine, explains how to perform these 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. Practical exercises demonstrate how to use sound in healing and meditation, such as "Vowels as Mantras" and "Overtoning," techniques pioneered by the author and utilized worldwide. JONATHAN GOLDMAN is director of the Sound Healers Association, president of Spirit Music, and has over twenty years experience in sound therapy. He is the author of Shifting Frequencies and The Lost Chord and has created numerous albums including the first studio recordings of the Dalai Lama's Gyume Tibetan monks, the first recording featuring dolphin sounds, and the award-winning Chakra Chants, 1999 Visionary Album of the Year.
