Quick links:Six Healing Sounds Video and Music CD
Elixir - Music for Moving and Still Meditation
Blurring Boundaries - Erhu Excursions
Using musically timed intervals as an aid to signal inhalation and exhalation, this unique music program is designed to both facilitate learning, and to deepen the practice, of the ancient six healing sounds qigong practice. For each sound, Ying has created meditation music centered around the chordal tonality of the sound. You may purchase the instructional DVD or accompanying music CD separately, or both at a discounted rate.
Instructional DVD: Video Preview
An approximate 1.5 hr video, this DVD includes the following sections:
DVD menu links are provided for each of the above sections, and a video sub-menu provides links to instruction for each sound as well as a "key point summary" for quick review of proper methods for vocalizing each sound.
Note: The methods for vocalizing each sound are in accordance with a national conference, held in 2003 in China, in which historians and qigong experts determined standard methods for Six Healing Sounds practice. The instructional DVD is highly recommended for those not familiar with the standard vocalization, facial structure, and exhalation imagery.
Six Healing Sounds Music CD:
For those wishing to practice anywhere you can play music,* this CD contains the "follow me" music program only. The CD contains 7 tracks, including an approximate 4 minute beginning meditation followed by each of the sounds in order: Xu, He, Hu, Si, Chui, and Xi. The tracks are uninterrupted by pause, but each track is individually accessible with your audio player track search function.
Note: The music CD does not contain instruction and is intended for those who are familiar with the standard methods for vocalization, facial structure, and exhalation imagery. Though no instruction is provided, inhalation/exhalation intervals should be fairly obvious after listening to the music.
