The Mystery Schools of Egypt, Greece, and Rome understood that vibration is the fundamental active force in the universe and developed specific chants and tones for healing the mind, body, and spirit and achieving altered states of consciousness. Overtone chanting--also called vocal harmonics--is the ability of the human voice to create two or more notes at the same time. Healing Sounds explains how to perform vocal harmonics and experience their transformative and curative powers.
An internationally recognized master teacher, the author provides diverse examples of sound healing systems incorporating both mystical and medical traditions--from Tibetan monks' use of tantric harmonics to Dr. Alfred Tomatis' use of Gregorian chanting--and their capacity to affect us on all levels. With many easy-to-follow exercises, Healing Sounds is the first book to show from both the scientific and spiritual viewpoints how to use the transformative power of sound for healing on physical, emotional, mental, and spiritual levels.
"Healing Sounds is a great gift for humankind. It is of benefit now and for the future."
"The creator of Dolphin Dreams and Chakra Chants recordings examines the purest form of therapeutic sound—harmonics—in his latest book, Healing Sounds. . . . His personal revelations and direct writing style make this an exceptional introduction to a fascinating field."
"Gives a glimpse into the incredible potential of vocal harmonics and toning as a tool for self-health and transformation."

Posted May 26, 2009
I play a wind instrument and I am always trying to improve my playing, and I found that this book offers additional insight into sound, production of sound, and effects of sound through world exploration of these topics. What also made this book entertaining is the advanced nature of it since it was first published around 1949 (pre-1960s!), and by reading this one also gets a sense of the deeper hippie feeling of healing that probably existed in the USA in the 1960s if that was before one's time. I bought this a few years ago, it is a 2002 edition, but the cover is different (Buddha/Chakra image of some sort on the cover). It is the type of book that one keeps, and reflects on its contents now and then. This is not a flake new age book, but rather steps toward advancements in sound healing as a bonfide natural medicine.Was this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback.
