Mindfulness Meditation & Yoga Tools

Sound therapy or meditation is a form of focused awareness. It can use a range of sounds including Tibetan singing bowls, crystal singing bowls, gongs, Ting-shas (tiny cymbals), dorges (bells), didgeridoos, and other small bells.

Be sure to check out the Apps on the References page for more sound therapy tools.

1. Assume a comfortable seat. 

2. Close your eyes and concentrate on an external sound. For example, ambient alpha wave music, the sound of a rushing brook, your neighbors, the lawn mower, your children in the next room, traffic outside, the garbage collectors, etc. 

3. After you’ve mastered listening to the external sound, start to focus on listening to your body and mind. 

4. Eventually, you’ll hear the sound that has no vibration: the sound of the universe — the OM.
