Chakra Meditations & Tones

Chakra Meditations & Tones
Dudley & Dean Evenson with Beth Quist

“Experiencing this meditation is perfect for the beginner and the advanced. The first eight tracks are instructional and provide the listener with a meditation experience at the same time. The melodic sounds of the chakra tones of the second eight tracks are delightful! Truly calming and peaceful. I highly recommend this sound experience!”
    ~ Margaret Ann Lembo, Owner The Crystal Garden & author of Chakra Awakening

The first half hour of the album is spoken by Dudley Evenson, whose soothing voice leads the guided affirmations for each chakra – concluding with a track for balancing all the chakras.  The second half hour is comprised of musical toning with the chakras and features Beth Quist whose beautiful vocalizations of the chakras reflect the essence of each energy center.

For more than three decades, Dudley and Dean Evenson have immersed themselves in the exploration of healing through music.  They have traveled to temples, interviewed healers and worked with masterful musicians around the world.  On this progressive path, they have developed an understanding of the multi-dimensional uses of music.  Their album “Chakra Meditations & Tones” reveals the basic steps of healing through sound on a journey through your chakras, body, spirit and mind.

These award-winning sound healing pioneers have created this beautiful album as an effective tool for energizing and balancing the chakras. The album is designed to be listened to frequently and is arranged so that one can add their own tones to the sound track. It is ideal for meditation, healing, yoga and overall relaxation.  Liner notes explain the chakra system.

The Hindustani Scale (Sa Re Ga ma Pa Dha Ni Sa) and the Sanskrit Seed Sounds of Bija mantra (Lam Vam Ram Yam Ham Sham Aum) are used along with the vowel tones (UH, OO, OH, AH, EYE, AYE, EEE) to evoke deep inner peace and set the ground for the rhythms and tones of this mind calming, meditative, body healing, musical album.

Dream Space Album Cover

Dean Evenson’s DREAM SPACE Provides Deep Relaxation

DREAM SPACE, by Dean Evenson (Soundings of the Planet) — Flutist Dean Evenson is well known for his beautiful, spacious music, in which peace and serenity mingle with nature and soft melodies. With Dream Space, Evenson and friends (Dudley Evenson on harp, Tibetan bowls and tamboura, Phil Heaven on viola) present an atmosphere that is meant to be transcendent and otherworldly. Evenson’s flutes wander through the recording with haunting grace, while flowing keyboard ambience, dotted with Tibetan bowl tones and cosmic effects, gives the feeling of floating through space. The strings of heaven and the harp of Dudley further add an enchanting accent to the music when they make an appearance. The music also incorporates the Earth Resonance Frequency (ERF) at 7.83 Hz, which entrains the brain to a state between alpha and theta for maximum meditative potential. This is certainly Dean Evenson’s most ambient album to date, providing the potential for deeper states of relaxation than ever before. Reviewed in THE EDGE

4 Earth by Dean Evenson

Dean’s New Release “4 Earth” is ‘au naturel’

Dean Evenson is an award-winning sound healing pioneer known for combining his beautiful flute music with the sounds of nature. Now, for the first time, he is releasing 4 Earth: Natural Sounds of Ocean, Stream, River, Pond,  an album of just natural sounds drawn from four interconnected eco-systems and the flow of water between them. The gentle sounds of water in its many forms are a supportive background for meditation, healing, relaxation and even as a sleep aid. From ocean waves deep with whale song to snowmelt streams, waterfalls and the calling of eagles, the Earth makes its statement. In a time when people are increasingly disconnected from nature, this album is a soothing balm for the soul. Contains Earth Resonance Frequency for deeper relaxation.
