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. • Over 25,000 copies of first editions sold in 6 languages. • 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.

Please receive it with my blessing, and bring it into your life. Let it support you to become kind and strong and clear and awake."—Tenzin Wangyal Rinpoche One of the world's oldest unbroken spiritual traditions is the Bön Buddhist tradition of Tibet.

What if sound could be used to heal and transform? Now Sound Healing pioneer Jonathan Goldman reveals how it can! Through practical information and exercises, you'll see how the amazing power of sound functions as personal vibrational therapy for enhancement of mind, body, and spirit. This book provides a basic understanding of the principles of using sound as a healing modality, and how it may be used to restore balance. It combines the ancient wisdom of how sound can heal and transform, with the modern understanding of the science of sound, where quantum physicists echo the revelations of th
The true nature of our minds is enlightened and peaceful, as the depth of the ocean is calm and clear. But when we mentally grasp and emotionally cling to our wants and worries with all our energy, we lose our own enlightened freedom and healing power, only to gain stress and exhaustion, suffering and overexcitement, like the turbulent waves rolling on the surface of the ocean. Our minds possess the power to heal pain and stress, and to blossom into peace and joy, by loosening the clinging attitudes that Buddhists call "grasping at self." If we apply the mind's healing power, we can heal not only our mental and emotional afflictions, but physical problems also. This book is an invitation to awaken the healing power of mind through inspiring images and sounds, mindful movements, positive perceptions, soothing feelings, trusting confidence, and the realization of openness. The healing principle on which these exercises are based is the universal nature and omnipresent power envisioned in Mahayana Buddhism. Yet for healing, we don't have to be believers in any particular faith. We can heal body and mind simply by being what we truly are, and by allowing our own natural healing qualities to manifest: a peaceful and open mind, a loving and positive attitude, and warm, joyful energy in a state of balance and harmony.
"Sacred Sounds" reveals to today's seekers how to tap into the magical and healing aspects of voice, resonance and music that, on a metaphysical level, have been used to induce altered states of consciousness, open new levels of awareness, stimulate intuition and increase creativity.
In 1981, French musician/composer and acupuncturist Fabien Maman conducted a revolutionary sound/cellular experiment, documenting for the first time under a microscope, the impacts of acoustic sound on human cells. This research changed the landscape of vibrational sound healing as we know it today. Websters' Dictionary (English), sites Maman as the founding father of vibrational sound therapy. His colleagues call him a visionary before his time. 2011 marks the 30th anniversary of Maman's sound/cellular experiment. In commemoration of this anniversary, Fabien Maman has now written The Tao of Sound: Acoustic Sound Healing for the 21st Century. This book is an encyclopedia of Maman's more than 30 years of research and practical application, creating more than 30 techniques to heal the body, mind and spirit using acoustic sound, color and chi movement®. Fabien Maman is the man who created the now famous technique of using tuning forks and color lights on the acupuncture meridians to heal the body, mind and spirit. Each evolutionary technique is grounded in sound and cellular research, as well as the Classical traditions of music theory, mathematics, Chinese medicine, aikido, Kototama and astrology. The Tao of Sound will become the quintessential Encyclopedia for Sound Healing. It is everything you ever wanted to know about Fabien Maman's sound research and sound protocols from Star to Cell - linking the human body, organs, meridians, chakras and subtle energy fields with the 5 elements of nature, 8 directions of the Bagwa, the Kaballa and the stars and beyond. And it is backed by his 100 brilliant color photographs of human cells under the influence of acoustic sound! It is also a manifesto for acoustic sound - challenging all who enter the world of vibrational sound healing, to do so softly... with no electronic nor electric sounds... but returning, once again, to the healing power of pure overtones and harmonics that can only be found in the five elements and the nature....

Healing Mantras is the practical, how-to guide that makes the strengths and benefits of mantras available to everyone. The transformative power of sound has been passed down to the present from the sages of India, the classical scientists of ancient Greece, and the medieval monks of Europe. Mantras, sounds, and chants have inspired, comforted, and mended the lives of individuals, religious orders, and even entire cultures. Even though the science and discipline of chanting and formal prayer are practiced in every religion around the world, this is the first time that ancient Sanskrit mantras have been explained and adapted to Western needs. One of the few Western experts in Hindu and Buddhist mantras, Thomas Ashley-Farrand has practiced mantra-based spiritual disciplines for twenty-five years.
