For example, using his years of experience as a clinician, John has been able to eloquently and brilliantly tie together theoretical concepts from systems theory, music, and hypnosis, concluding that the still point in music, the trance state in hypnosis, and the chaotic attractor in systems theory are all one and the same. This is a remarkable observation!
On page 21 he states: "An attractor is a region within an oscillating field that pulls everything towards it. It is an attractor that allows us to shift from one energy field to another. In the healing arts, attractors are called still points. The key to shifting from one mental/physical pattern to another is still point. Dr. Milton Erickson, M.D.,....called the state of trance "neutral" which is another term for still point. He believed that for a person to change, they must first go into a trance. The practitioner could then guide them into a new life pattern using suggestions. Once a system enters still point, a change in pattern involves reorganizing around a new tone. In hypnosis, the practitioner offers the new pattern through verbal suggestions. In tuning fork work, the new pattern is introduced through the audible tone of the tuning forks. In hypnosis, the practitioner uses different verbal methods to induce a still point.Read more ›
By way of background...I am an energy bodyworker, trained in, (among other things) Shiatsu, Healing Touch, and kinesiology.
First of all, this is not a 'how-to' book, far from it. It is a book where the author writes everything he knows about sound and music and the anechoic chamber.
And, the DVD is centered on his personal reactions and experience which are not of interest and not helpful in learning to use tuning forks. For example, he often says, "I like to" use this tuning fork or combine two, or... He does not say the result or outcome of the action. He does not give the outcome for the few examples he does give, or describe the client's reaction. Did using the tuning forks make any difference? I cannot tell. I think he does mention that people 'bliss out' on occasion. He does not give specific instructions for placing the tuning fork. And, his experiences in the anechoic chamber are useless.
There are many better instruction books and DVD's which can be found with a little research. Many tuning fork sites give written instructions and even have videos on their sites at no charge, so save your money.
I am left with the feeling of the old expression about a man who, when asked the time, tells you how to make a watch. I have heard useless information, and I still do not know the time.
Someone mentioned the beautiful illustrations by his son the photographer. It happens that I am a photographer (trained in the military), and I must say I am struck by the way the photographer captured the flowering plant growing from his father's hand in the portrait on the back cover...no wonder he's frowning.
