--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.
