“Music is not just a literate activity. It’s a potent communication system that is embedded in the wild and connects all the life on the planet...Experience this world as a musical place.” Patricia Gray, Researcher of BioMusic at UNCG
We are nature, we are of the same elements. The natural harmony that we see in plants, trees, and flowers is the same beauty that exists in us. Use nature as a mirror to remember this.
Do you know how it feels to go on a hike or to be completely surrounded by nature? Immersions like this allow us to feel more refreshed, energized, and harmonically in-tune. Plants are our allies when it comes to creating sacred sanctuary space. They are natural healers and when we allow them to be a part of our daily lives, we see great benefit. When we dial into their slower rhythm and peaceful state, we experience a deepened sense of well-being and serenity.
Gentle Earth Sound Therapy offers an immersion in the natural world. We illustrate and help you explore the fundamental tenant that all life is connected by providing a firsthand sensory experience of plant life through Bioacoustics. One of the wonderful ways that plants communicate is through the variation of electromagnetic fields - or biorhythms, produced by the neurobiological activity that takes place between their roots and leaves. These fields are highly dynamic, constantly changing and adapting to everything that happens in the environment; variations in sunlight, air movement, the presence and quality of water, and also in response to interactions with people.
Via two sensory pads placed on the leaves of our studio plants (think miniature stethoscope) we monitor the fluctuations of electrical conductivity on the leaf surface. These variations are then graphed as a wave and translated into pitch messages or notes that are routed to play instruments. In short, we turn a plants’ biorhythm into music! When we encounter a plant as a musician, we can connect to nature in a way like never before allowing for deeper insight into ourselves and the world around us. We invite you to touch nature, rather than feeling separate from it. Add this interactive experience to any of the integrative modalities that Gentle Earth Sound Therapy offers.
