Kenyon's Acoustic Brain Research, founded in 1983, has made intriguing discoveries about the effects of sound and music on the brain. In performance, Kenyon creates a diverse aural experience using bells, drums, a “singing bowl”, and his own vocal prowess to recreate animal and nature sounds. The results can either be therapeutic of baffling, depending on one's approach to the subject; indeed, Songs of the New Earth will likely polarize viewers into those who believe that Kenyon is bringing a profound new dimension to out understanding of the hunan experience, and those who think he is a New Age kook. The latter camp will find high-grade ammo in Kenyon's talk of encounters with aliens during his meditation spells and his repeated visions of whales in flights (both of which are visualized here in animation). On the flip side, however, Kenyon is an articulate advocate of the importance of sound in achieving a body-min-spirit balance, and his integration of contemporary sonic research with ancient traditions (Tibetan Buddhism, shamanism, Egyptian alchemy, etc.) is often fascinating. Bottom line: if viewers approach Kenyon with an open mind on some topics and grain of salt on others, they may fin themselves both entertained and enlightened. DVD extras include additional teachings by Kenyon, and a guide to overtone chanting. Recommended.\"\u003cstrong\u003e - Video Librarian\u003cbr\u003e\u003c\/strong\u003e\u003c\/span\u003e\u003c\/p\u003e\n\u003cdiv\u003e\u003c\/div\u003e","published_at":"2014-10-28T11:03:00-07:00","created_at":"2014-10-10T12:44:27-07:00","vendor":"Ward Serrill","type":"DVD","tags":[],"price":3999,"price_min":3999,"price_max":25000,"available":true,"price_varies":true,"compare_at_price":null,"compare_at_price_min":0,"compare_at_price_max":0,"compare_at_price_varies":false,"variants":[{"id":974835268,"title":"University and College (With PPR)","option1":"University and College (With PPR)","option2":null,"option3":null,"sku":"SNE-U","requires_shipping":true,"taxable":false,"featured_image":null,"available":true,"name":"Song of the New Earth -

Kenyon's Acoustic Brain Research, founded in 1983, has made intriguing discoveries about the effects of sound and music on the brain. In performance, Kenyon creates a diverse aural experience using bells, drums, a “singing bowl”, and his own vocal prowess to recreate animal and nature sounds. The results can either be therapeutic of baffling, depending on one's approach to the subject; indeed, Songs of the New Earth will likely polarize viewers into those who believe that Kenyon is bringing a profound new dimension to out understanding of the hunan experience, and those who think he is a New Age kook. The latter camp will find high-grade ammo in Kenyon's talk of encounters with aliens during his meditation spells and his repeated visions of whales in flights (both of which are visualized here in animation). On the flip side, however, Kenyon is an articulate advocate of the importance of sound in achieving a body-min-spirit balance, and his integration of contemporary sonic research with ancient traditions (Tibetan Buddhism, shamanism, Egyptian alchemy, etc.) is often fascinating. Bottom line: if viewers approach Kenyon with an open mind on some topics and grain of salt on others, they may fin themselves both entertained and enlightened. DVD extras include additional teachings by Kenyon, and a guide to overtone chanting. Recommended.\"\u003cstrong\u003e - Video Librarian\u003cbr\u003e\u003c\/strong\u003e\u003c\/span\u003e\u003c\/p\u003e\n\u003cdiv\u003e\u003c\/div\u003e"}
