Of Sound Mind and Body: Music and Vibrational Healing (1992)

Available worldwide

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.

Deepak Chopra, Rupert Sheldrake, Jill Purce, Don Campbell, Bernie Siegel, John Beaulieu, Kay Gardner, Steven Halpern, Jonathan Goldman, Therese Schroeder-Sheker, Barbara Crowe, Ray Lynch, Iasos, Robert Gass

Many years ago I suffered great loss in my life. I saw a program on TV about First Nations people who sing and chant and move to drums. I tried it and I really did feel some release of my pain I should have kept it up, I might have healed sooner.. I will move away a bit from lectures and reading words and start making my own sound with love in my heart .

This was a very well-made documentary with excellent choices for acoustic samples of various traditions and very soothing background scores throughout the film including end-credits. However, the silence with regard to the importance of Sufi music as a spiritual and musical tradition is 'deafening'. While it may be that Rumi and Sufi spirituality was lesser known in the West when the film was made, it is nonetheless a tradition steeped in musical healing for hundreds of years. Many nice samples can be found on Youtube such as this one: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=7GBpjlITnHU

I love to delve into newness. Newness for me. A new way of looking at myself in the world, within. I was intrigued by the many different sounds and the composer explanations. Some of it was over my head yet I realized it resonated with my soul.
Thanks for this. I will watch it again.

I thought I knew about this, but the film filled in as many blanks as it uncovered! Thanks for this gem!

I loved this film. It was so engaging and emotionally evocative as described with so much power in the musical sounds that I absolutely changed my mood in the end to feeling so calm and relaxed fantastically. This film inspired me to continue on with my own filmmaking project talking to people about how important music is and how Music Moves Us all.
