Many cultures recognize the importance of music and sound as healing power.
In the ancient civilization of India, the Orient, Africa, Europe, and among the Aboriginals and Amerindians, the practice of using sound to heal and achieve balance from within has existed for years.
The Australian Aboriginals and Native shamanists use vocal toning and repetitive sound vibration with instruments created from nature in sacred ceremony to adjust any imbalance of spirit.
The Tibetans still use bells, chimes, bowls and chanting as the foundation for their spiritual practice. In Bali, Indonesia, the echoing, gamelong, gong and drum are used in ceremonies to uplift and send messages.
Ascendant Books carries a great selection of crystal bowls, chimes, bells, sound therapy cds and books to assist people in practicing this healing art.
