Echoes of Equinox

It's been a while since I have written - apologies for the space and quietness! Welcome September! The light is stunning and I can see a definite change in the season. A time of abundance and harvest. Bright berries shine in the hedgerows, crab apples, conkers and hazelnuts start to fall from the trees and apples ripen in the orchards. The reason we have a long school summer holiday was originally to give children time off school to work 6-8 weeks in the fields. September would have seen our ancestors and their children busy working to get in the rest of the harvest, root crops, drying herbs making cider and preserving seeds for next year. This is a great time to take stock in order to prepare for winter and bring your life back into balance. What do you need to do more and what do you need to do less of? I've had a lovely few months dotting about the place giving and receiving good vibrations! Big thanks to Yoga Haven for such a wonderful afternoon. Boy was it hot in there but as soon as the amazing Yin yoga began I managed to get to grips with it heat and truly relax. What an amazing warm up/cool down before the sound bath. Lovely group of people, great space and I look forward to returning!     Up next...

The Science Behind Healing With Sound

By Kathryn Drury Wagner https://upliftconnect.com/science-behind-healing-sound/?utm_source=facebook&utm_medium=link&utm_campaign=uplift   In the realm of healing techniques, sound work inhabits a curious space. It has been used for thousands of years—think of overtone chanting from Central Asia, for example—yet, it’s also on the frontiers of modern neuroscience. Joshua Leeds, the author of The Power of Sound and an expert in the field of psychoacoustics, the study of the effects of sound on the human nervous system, explains how sound works by: …creating a frequency and vibration for someone that’s conducive for him or her to heal. Sound healing is trending up. It’s like where yoga was 15 years ago. People are realizing that sound is a viable medium to address distress, enhance learning, even work with an autistic child. Sound like overtone chanting has been used for thousands of years for healing. Brain-wave Entrainment Much of the current work is based on the early 70s research of biophysicist Gerald Oster. Oster showed that when a tone is played in one ear and a slightly different tone is played in the other ear, the difference causes the brain to create a third, internal tone, called a binaural beat. The theory is that this syncs the brain waves in both hemispheres, a process dubbed “brain-wave entrainment”. Carol Moore, marketing director of Monroe Products, which makes Hemi-Sync verbal meditations and music that contain embedded binaural beats, says: When the brain is in synchronicity, there’s more focus. Our sleep titles help drop you into the deep delta waves. Electrical activity in the brain gets slowed down. Brain-wave entrainment is when sound syncs the brain waves in both hemispheres. Recovery from Serious Illness Some of the products are designed to help people recover from a stroke or surgery, deal with chronic pain, or become more relaxed while undergoing chemotherapy. You might envision the drugs as a love potion, rather than poison. She describes it as creating a state where you can say, ‘This is coming into my body to heal me, not to do damage to me’. Sound can be used to help people recover from serious medical conditions. The Synchronicity of Sound Brain-wave entrainment isn’t without its skeptics, but some research supports it. In 2008, the journal Alternative Therapies in Health and Medicine published a review of 20 studies of brain-wave entrainment and patient outcomes. The conclusion was that brain-wave entrainment is an effective tool to use on cognitive functioning deficits, stress, pain, headaches, and premenstrual syndrome. The studies also suggest that sound work can help with behavioral problems. Bill Harris, who...
