Soundings Music Helps Troops and Vets Relax

A few years ago Dean Evenson and I were privileged to be invited to present our music and sound healing workshop at Walter Reed Army Medical Center to help returning combat troops and those suffering from PTSD and wounds of war.

To support the visit we created a Relaxation Basic Training Guide that would help soldiers with the daunting task of unlearning their fight or flight syndrome and learn a new skill – relaxation.  Since we know how much music can help the relaxation process, we were glad to provide tools for people to unwind from their intensive military experience and begin to calm down their instincts and prepare to live in a world without the stresses of war.  In essence we were teaching them the yoga of sound and how to use breath, toning and affirmations to change their mental state and allow the body to calm down.  For years we had heard the phrase – Support the Troops – and although our motto is Peace Through Music and we have always been opposed to war in general, we still wanted to help those who are called upon to fight.  The challenge for many is the Post Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD) that often appears after combat.  This can be an issue for anyone who has experienced a traumatic event (accident, loss, death of a loved one) so the information we compiled is relevant for those who haven’t been in war.

So if you or anyone you know is in need of overcoming PTSD or any stress related situation – you can click here to download the Relaxation Basic Training Manual.  And if you are interested – these are the CDs the chaplain would hand out to the wounded soldiers at Walter Reed – Sound Healing, Healing Waters, Healing Dreams, Eagle River, and Ocean Dreams.  We also created a DVD called Eagle River that was specifically designed to help those suffering from the stresses of war.

And don’t forget, I am giving away a free mp3 download for those who comment on my blog.  Thanks for sharing.

 

World Sound Healing Day February 14, 2014

World Sound Healing Day

What if enough people set an intention for love to prevail and they all decided to take a moment on one day of the year to send out a tone representing their commitment to love – do you think it would make a difference?  Well, in case you want to be part of a worldwide experiment testing the LOVE FREQUENCY in action, you might want to join a great many of us who are choosing to send out the great AH tone of the heart chakra with the intention of sending out love to the whole planet.  This will be on Valentine’s Day when so many are considering love in all its facets.  Our good friends Jonathan Goldman and Andi Goldman have been sponsoring this planetary toning for many years. You can learn more from their new video and actually participate in creating a live group sound on their website on February 14th.  Whether you go through the process and listen in with others or just find a quiet space in your own home to sit and make the Ah tone, please consider joining this powerful sound healing experience of elevating the frequency of love on the planet.  Not much to lose and much to possibly gain.

Join thousands throughout the planet for the 12th Annual World Sound Healing Day on Friday, February 14, 2014.  At 12 noon (local time in your time zone) sound forth for 5 minutes with the ‘Ah’ tone created and projected with the energy of compassion and love, sending a sonic valentine to Gaia, our Mother Earth.

At that time, you can also go to the Temple of Sacred Sound to enhance the vibratory effect as we sound together for Global Harmonization, planetary peace and healing,  If you cannot tone at noon, sounding any time during the day will help create positive shift and change for our planet on World Sound Healing Day.

The purpose of World Sound Healing Day is to:

  1. Heal Our Planet!
  2. Heal Our Waters!
  3. Raise Our Consciousness!
