In this video I play rhythms in the mid-theta range to connect you to your creative genius. I also demonstrate that you don’t need an expensive drum to experience the profound effects of drumming. Meditation starts at 1:30.
In this video, I compare binaural beats to drumming for brainwave entrainment and describe why drumming is more effective (and versatile). I also play a meditation to demonstrate how entraining the brain to the alpha state works with drumming (starts at 12:04).
I’ve been honored to work with Sounds True over the last 10 years – one of my favorite publishers – where I created 8 CDs and 2 audio programs. That honor continues as I talk about drum healing and REI with founder Tami Simon on her podcast, Insights at the Edge.
From Sounds True:
In this episode of Insights at the Edge, Sounds True founder Tami Simon speaks with Jeff about the concept of brain entrainment through rhythm and how it has deep roots in tribal ceremony. They talk about the therapeutic application of this music for anxiety, ADHD, autism, and mood disorders, and explain the difference between rhythmic entrainment and “neuro beat” recordings. Finally, Jeff offers two excerpts of his music for calming and the exploration of deep meditative states.
Here is a throwback to my first blog video. I show how I create REI rhythms that directly impact a listener’s behavior. I dissect a rhythm in 21/16 time that I use to stop a hand-flapping behavior in individuals with autism.
