Of Sound Mind and Body: Music and Vibrational Healing (1992)
Winner of the Hartley Film Award through the Institute of Noetic sciences, this engaging and emotionally evocative program demonstrates the power of sound to transform mood, mind and matter! It artfully portrays how we live in a vast ocean of sound that is continually bathing us with subtle sensations and subconscious impressions. In the most touching segment, we vividly witness how patients and staff are enlivened by the healing power of music during therapeutic sessions at Rainbow Babies and Children's Hospital and at an Alzheimer's facility.
This 72-minute video includes chapters on the power of the human voice; Cymatics (how sound structures matter into coherent geometric patterns); the emotional and spiritual effects of music; and interviews, demonstrations and performances by leading musicians, authors and sound health practitioners. For example, Deepak Chopra discusses and demonstrates several of the archetypal primordial sounds (not just the mantra, "Aum"), and biologist Rupert Sheldrake elucidates on the unique vibrational "fingerprint" of every living organism.
