Recently I’ve discovered a new path to peace: the musical creations of Dr. Jeffrey Thompson. Dr. Thompson is a scientist and musician who experiments with sound and its effect upon the body–particularly the ways in which sound frequencies, built into musical soundtracks, can entrain brainwaves and trigger various health benefits. By using certain frequencies, often combined with beautiful music and soothing sounds from nature, we can encourage our minds, and then our bodies, to enter into deeper states of peace and connection. I have found that this music creates a lovely atmosphere when used as background music, but it is even more effective upon one’s mental, physical and emotional state when played through headphones and used during meditation or even sleep.
Here are a few of my favorites:
I hope you will enjoy this music as much as I do! And if you’d like, please leave any comments or musical suggestions of your own below.
*These CDs (and many others by Dr. Thompson) are also available on iTunes.
