21st Century Radio Host Dr. Zohara Hieronimus sits down with co-authors Jonathan and Andi Goldman to discuss all the things sound healing. 30 years ago Jonathan wrote the classic Healing Sounds: The Power of Harmonics, published by Healing Arts Press. Does his guidebook still apply? How can harmonics be used in healing? How can humming lead to better health and happiness? How do intention and gratitude effect how we use sound every day? We delve into these questions and much more.
About Healing Sounds:
Sharing many easy-to-follow sound healing exercises, such as “Vowels as Mantras” and “Overtoning,” Goldman explains in detail how to perform vocal harmonics--a form of overtone chanting--and experience their transformative and healing powers. He shows how harmonics can be used as sonic yoga for meditation and deep relaxation as well as to enhance energy and resonate the chakras, the energy centers of the body.
In their book The Humming Effect the Goldmans reveal that humming is one of the simplest and yet most profound sounds we can make. If you have a voice and can speak, you can hum. Research has shown humming to be much more than a self-soothing sound: it affects us on a physical level, reducing stress, inducing calmness, and enhancing sleep as well as lowering heart rate and blood pressure and producing powerful neurochemicals such as oxytocin, the “love” hormone.
In this guide to conscious humming, Jonathan and Andi Goldman show that you do not need to be a musician or singer to benefit from sound healing practices—all you need to do is hum.
Providing a self-healing method accessible to all, the authors reveal that, even if you have no musical ability, we are all sound healers.
