Process stress and anxiety
A sound meditation is a chance to recover from the stress of a fast-paced life in the Information Age.
The experience offers a temporary departure from sensory stimulus, where participants are alone with their body and mind, free to reflect. A mindful approach to sound meditation can lead to states of tranquility and emotional self-healing.
Creative thought and Problem-Solving
The sound bath experience can guide listeners into hypnagogia, a natural mental state between sleep and wakefulness.
Humans tend to make creative associations in hypnagogia, which can lead to realizations and innovative problem-solving. Many well-known artists and authors have used ideas and visions from this mental state as inspiration.
Mary Shelley, the author of "Frankenstein", renowned painter Salvador Dali, and inventor Thomas Edison all cited hypnagogia as inspiration for their work.
Deep Rest and sleep
Ambient sound can help facilitate sleep. Some listeners will nap within a sound bath, moving past hypnagogia and into deeper states of rest.
