Sound Transformation: A Sensual-Scientific Look into the Mysterious Power of Sounds

In the conscious use of sounds, amazing inner transformations often occur, which have a positive effect on the way we live our lives. Especially at the border between sound and silence an effortless contact with deep layers of our being is possible, which can lead to new life feelings, insights and realizations. It is precisely the reduction of information, the freedom from concepts and the inner order of the sound signals which contribute to this. Why this is so can actually be understood by means of psychoacoustic and neuropsychological observations. The art of sound transformation thus combines scientific knowledge, sensual experience and spiritual wisdom. This results in a great supportive potential for many psychosomatic disorders, such as depression or anxiety disorders, which is why sounds are also used in various forms in therapeutic and consciousness-altering processes and contribute significantly to their success. The lecture offers a multifaceted journey into the mysterious power of sounds.
