"One of the best pieces of ethnomusicological research of the last ten years. Roseman shows just how central musical ideas and practices are to a way of knowing and imagining the world, to a way of transforming ordinary experiences, and to penetrating belief systems more broadly."—Steven Feld, University of Texas, Austin "An exciting contribution to interpretive medical anthropology. Moving analytically between Temiar cultural constrictions of illness and health, and the humanely organized sounds of healing ceremonies, Roseman explicates the culural logic whereby aesthetic configurations participate in a comprehensive, therapeutically effective pattern of reality. This author has brocaded medical anthropology with ethnomusicology, producing a shimmering postmodern ethnographic tapestry of great subtlety and strength."—Barbara Tedlock, SUNY, Buffalo

The Mystery Schools of Egypt, Greece, and Rome understood that vibration is the fundamental active force in the universe and developed specific chants and tones for healing the mind, body, and spirit and achieving altered states of consciousness. Overtone chanting--also called vocal harmonics--is the ability of the human voice to create two or more notes at the same time. Healing Sounds explains how to perform vocal harmonics and experience their transformative and curative powers. An internationally recognized master teacher, the author provides diverse examples of sound healing systems incorporating both mystical and medical traditions--from Tibetan monks' use of tantric harmonics to Dr. Alfred Tomatis' use of Gregorian chanting--and their capacity to affect us on all levels. With many easy-to-follow exercises, Healing Sounds is the first book to show from both the scientific and spiritual viewpoints how to use the transformative power of sound for healing on physical, emotional, mental, and spiritual levels.
Like its sister volume Embryonic Breathing: The Taoist Method of Opening the Dan Tian, the information in this book is quite extensive and, due to its compactness, more readily accessible. The full implications of practicing the Six Secret Words has far-reaching effects towards a person's health, longevity, and spiritual development. Sound therapies have been used in almost every culture throughout history, even in present-day Western medicine, but none have been quite as profound as those found in ancient Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM). The use of sound in Chinese spiritual practices goes back deep into antiquity, and in many cases finding its roots in ancient India. This book provides three distinct sections. The first section goes over the particulars of the Six Healing Sounds attributed to the Han dynasty physician Hua Tuo, the second deals with the Six Qi as presented by Li Qingyun, the 250-Year-Old Man (1678-1933), and the third deals with the effects created by the vibration of the sounds, the Six Gentle Thunder Movements as taught in the Yellow Court Scripture.

Healing Sounds is a valuable resource book for therapists, teachers, and anyone who wishes to understand the inherent forces of the sounds we use in speech.
