The Science Behind Healing With Sound

Sounding The Sun

The month of May has brought us yet more colour, sunshine, warmth, and growth. We may not have felt it but we have already evolved and continue to do so through the fear, confusion and fog. As we try to navigate through our new existence, our lives having changed for ever, there are beautiful shoots of green hope bursting up through the cracks of the concrete. Take note of these shoots, open your heart to the kindness of strangers and expand your mind to the incredible possibilities for the future. As we enter into the Gemini phase it rules the brain and nervous system. Take some time to focus on brain heath through learning and creativity as well as physical exercise. Set aside time for meditation and head to nature for absorbing inspiration. Trust your instincts, not the media. Trust your own health and be your own doctor when possible. Trust our Mother Earth and all her abundance to provide, feed and heal. Have faith we WILL get through this, together, with strength, learning, understanding and love. News I hope you are all keeping well, safe and healthy, on all levels of being! Hopefully some of you have managed to enjoy my online sound bath sessions. If you are not on Facebook, all the sound baths are uploaded here to my website so you can still enjoy from the comfort of your own home at any time. As I have stumbled through the world of online streaming, with slips, trips and a thumping heart, I have now bitten the bullet and invested in a posh mic! This will enable me, fingers crossed, to stream with ease, calm and great sound! The next Sound Bath live stream will be from my Edan Sound Facebook page on Friday 22nd May, 8:30-9:30pm. It is best listened to through head/earphones, lying or sitting down in a quiet cosy space. I am offering my online sound bath sessions for FREE. However, being self employed things are precarious especially with all public work cancelled for the foreseeable future. If you would like to make a donation for the session/s I would be eternally grateful. You can do this via paypal: paypal.me/edansound   Zoom Singing Bowl Workshop: I am planning on running a 2hr online singing bowl and voice healing workshop (date tbc). This will be run through Zoom and will include singing bowl techniques, how to use them therapeutically on yourself or others and how we can use our greatest tool, our voice, to...

Isolation Sound Sessions

Whilst we are in the midst of transitioning to new ways of being and under social distancing restrictions, I hope you will be able to enjoy some sound healing from your homes. When we are all in dire need the stress relief and healing, please make the most of these sessions. They are best experienced through head/earphones, lying or sitting down, in a quiet warm place, without disturbances. I am streaming these sessions for free but I would be incredibly grateful for any donations offered. Like many, I am self employed and my income has come to a sudden halt without much guarantee of any government support. If you would like to show your appreciation, you can do so via paypal: paypal.me/edansound   [embed]https://youtu.be/YT7nWDEL5R0[/embed] [embed]https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=viA4kvjY3wI[/embed] [embed]https://youtu.be/nIN8KYV9eHw[/embed] [embed]https://youtu.be/1wrhVo7Ln6c[/embed] [embed]https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=bsI5B-MjF1M[/embed]...

CHANGE IS UPON US

EMBRACE THE CHANGE In today's world, humanity is facing a critical point. The current conjunction between Saturn and Pluto will effect the rest of our year. At these sort of major astrological moments, there are often very significant events happening in history. When Saturn & Pluto come together, these events are often to do with containment, control and constriction. We are entering a major transition in the history of humankind and our planet. We are just at the beginning of an extraordinary shift from what we knew as our old lives. Things have been incredibly tough for many, with sacrifices made and loved ones lost. This is global. We are in this together. And my deepest heartfelt thoughts go out to those on the front lines and those really suffering. Those without roofs over their heads, without food, without loved ones or without protection. Amongst this heavy fog of isolation, there is also a beautiful blossoming of pockets of community coming together. We are already beginning to live differently, making bread, sewing seeds, walking, riding bikes, perhaps talking to our neighbours for the first time, becoming less reliant on convenience, appreciating what we had and reflecting on what we love, need, want and what we are happy to let go of. And when we finally stop, with nowhere to run to, or activities to continually distract us, we will eventually come to meet ourselves. Our hearts have to open. Can we use this time to deeply connect with ourselves and who we are? In this space, isolation and time, can we learn to love ourselves and connect with the land and ultimately all other beings across the globe? This is a rare opportunity to dig deep. To respond to things, even if they're incredibly difficult, as if we have chosen them. If we can connect with gratitude to all we have in our lives, use our defenses to fight fear rather than using them to fight ourselves and others, perhaps we can reach a place of peace and healing? Adapting will give us the energy to plow forward with positivity in the possibility of new found opportunities, ways of living, ways of connecting with others. We are each being called to do our part and sacrifice or “make sacred” for the good of the whole, as we seed the Aquarian vision for our collective future. We are being called to cultivate our inner gardens, our own inner resources, and our abilities...

Don’t Call It ‘Healing’

https://medium.com/@iamninunina/the-problem-with-misusing-the-term-healing-c12e5d83a5cb   Don’t Call It ‘Healing’ Leila Antakly Dec 22, 2019 · 8 min read Photo by Tobias Wenning Konstantin is a gong master based in Ibiza who goes by the artistic name Kosma Solarius. He was born in 1972 in the Bavarian Forest, and is a mix of German and Greek roots. I interview this legend on Ninu Nina, and we discuss in great detail his background, how he grew up with music and later on as a teen ager how he became more and more interested in how to create and produce sound. We discuss his inspirations and life in Ibiza and the turning point in his life in the late 80’s when he booked the Star Sounds Orchestra, a legendary psychedelic trance live act, where he discovered and heard a set of symphonic planet gongs on a stage for the first time. Through research he found out that these instruments had a special way of being tuned to the orbital frequency of the planets of our solar system. From that point on he would always produce music tuned to planet frequencies. We interview Konstantin again but this time we get a little deeper with the magic of gongs. Science & the Magic of the Gongs Konstantin: I was very lucky to meet Jens ( Star Sounds Orchestra), because he is the father of planet gongs. He had the initial idea to tune symphonic gongs to planetary sounds, which they had experimented with already. Steve was the first musician ever to compose a planetary tuned music track, working together with the Swiss mathematician Hans Cousto, who discovered the so called cosmic-octave calculations, in which the time a planet needs to travel around the sun gets translated into a sound frequency. Turns out, that each planet has a very unique tuning and this was a very big discovery, that these tunings are the soul of music. If you take for example a guitar, and tune one string slightly up and down, but within the same key, you will realize, that each new tuning has a different character to it. So, the same key, but just slight changes of tuning seem to make a big difference. This is how the idea was born to use these gongs for gong meditations. In fact, these gongs were the first instruments ever to be tuned to natural frequencies and four of my gongs are from this very first series of planet gongs. I like to...

Welcome 2020!!!

As we begin a new decade it is time to begin a fresh direction. All too often the vision we have seems unattainable, far from our current reality. It can seem like an enormous task but a small shift in our trajectory can lead to a big difference in destination. This year, 2020=2+0+2+0 vibrates to the energy of the number 4, reminding us to send down our roots and anchor ourselves in our wisdom and in the land. Four is the builder, the organiser, and the law maker, and provides an opportunity for a new year in which we can build new systems for the future. Its time to transform old worn-out systems and situations and create new foundations for the new circumstances in which we find ourselves and from which a new future can unfold. This year learn to live in the right relationship with yourself, each other and the Earth. This will create a solid foundation for whatever happens next.   2019 saw the beginnings of a number of very exciting projects! I had the absolute eye-opening pleasure of working in Bristol Prison at the end of this year. An incredibly humbling day which went so well that I will be returning this month. An absolute honour to be part of my friends essential project; RiseUP   Using my voice more and singing with some utterly beautiful women has given me much healing and strength. Our very ad-hoc, non public and non performing group has ended up making 2 public appearances and 2020 will see us gathering for more vocal therapy to soothe our souls and bond our bones. Deepest thanks to my Singing Sistren.   I'm looking forward to starting my monthly sound bath sessions at Sense Touchbase Pears in Selly Oak this month! This may suit people that live closer to Touchbase than Birmingham Buddhist Centre and if you don't manage to get in quick enough with the Buddhist Centre sessions its a great overflow session! They will be held on a Wednesday evening, 5:30pm-6:30pm. For more info or to book your place please contact Sense Touchbase Pears directly.       Don't forget my February Imbolc Sound Bath with Aya Zebrowska on Sunday 23rd Feb! Very e xcited to be collaborating with this wonderful sound worker of a woman for the first time. This is a special 2hr session that includes the creation of a group medicine wheel followed by a 1.5hr sound bath. NOT TO BE MISSED! To book your place please email me directly.     Womens...
