"OCEAN OF BLISS sets a new gold standard in the Nature and Music genre, sure to appeal to long-time and new fans.The predictable melody and chord progressions of most familiar music keeps you subconsciously mentally analyzing where the music is going in the future.This keeps you in a constant state of stress!My music, on the other hand, is composed in ''the gap between thoughts'', which allows you to relax in the present moment.The mindful music on OCEAN of BLISS engages your innate 'relaxation response' in a way that most music does not.Anyone who has been to the beach on a fairly calm day has experienced the hypnotic effect of the sound of the surf rolling in. I call this Mother Nature's Organic Brainwave Entrainment (OBE).At the beach, we shift into a deep alpha state of about 8 cycles per second (Hertz, or Hz). This is also the fundamental frequency of the Earth's electro-magnetic 'brainwave', known as the Schumann Resonance.The alpha state is associated with feelings of relaxation, well-being, harmony with the world, inner peace and bliss.Like the ocean, you may notice that my music often rises and falls in sync with the rhythm of the waves. This creates a serendipitous synergy that is excellent for massage, studying and even falling asleep.My Rhodes Mark 7 electric piano is not a synthesizer. It produces tones like crystal singing bowls or tuning forks, but played by a keyboard. It's my signature sound, and I am the only sound healer who features this wonderful healing instrument."
