Episode III: Autumné is designed to take you deep into a full-spectrum sonic meditation, composed at 432hz. For an initial exposure, try the hi-rez audio file on some quality speakers with a subwoofer, or on really good headphones. Close your eyes and drop into the otherworld. I infused this Episode with deep and lush fall sounds, and the mood of the changing of the seasons from autumn to winter into to hibernation, peace and quiet. Autumn brings inspiration for change and transformation. I recorded violin, vocals, and incorporated electronic production on synths, deep bass frequencies, muted heartbeat drums and sound effects. I also recorded sound effects from the hills of northern California: crunching leaves, waving grass, and wind textures and bird songs.
Episode III is 10 minutes long--perfect for a #take10 meditation, a little background music for studying/writing, or chilling out at the end of your day. The deep bass frequencies ground you and the textures tie you into the inspiring autumn emotions of change and transformation. You know that you've meditated exactly 10 minutes when the track is up (no need for a timer, or for your brain to worry that you've sat too long or too little.)
Try this for a week: meditating to Episode III: Autumné every morning (or evening) for 10 minutes. If you have breathing techniques or deep relaxation tricks you normally use, bring those into play, and let your mind melt away on sound. And see how you feel.
New to meditation? Here's some further guidance to get you started:
1. Carve out 10 minutes of your morning. Choose a comfortable seat with feet flat on the floor.
2. Get ready. Put your headphones on, close your eyes, and take a few deep breaths. Relax.
3. Press play on Episode III: Autumné and relax into the sound frequencies. Bring your awareness to your breath and the music. After your sound journey, take a few more deep breaths, gently open your eyes, and see how you feel.
Thank you for joining me on this DEEP journey. In the autumn, leaves fall from trees effortlessly--and so allow yourself to let go of whatever you can shed right now, with very little effort.
