MARSHA BENTAMI - SOUND BATH MEDITATION
"Sound in a space affects us profoundly. It changes our heart rate, breathing, hormone secretion, brain waves. It affects our emotions and our cognition.
Sound affects us physiologically, psychologically, cognitively, and behaviorally all the time. The sound around us is affecting us even though we're not conscious of it." Julian Treasure.
"The vibrational frequency of two objects in contact will frequently fall into sync. When the frequencies are the same, it is called ‘resonance’. But when a vibrational body of a stronger resonance influences another in its field, leading the beat, it is called entrainment. Practices across the world incorporate sound entrainment to harmonize our internal frequencies.
Healing practices such as Sound Meditations, use the energy of sound to influence matter. Sometimes the things we can’t see, such as light or sound waves, can impact matter, such as our bodies in the most remarkable ways." Anna O'Faolan
"If we accept that sound is vibration & we know that vibration touches every part of our physical being, then we understand that sound is "heard" not only through our ears but through every cell in our body. The sound of our voices, entrained with the sound of the singing bowl permeates our entire being. Our pulse rate slows & our breath is restored to it's normal rhythm. We enter a state of consciousness that allows us to witness our lives from a calmer more meditative perspective." Dr Mitchell L. Gaynor.
