Gamma meditation is definitely worth mentioning. Gamma and Hypergamma sound wave meditation fits nicely into the brain improvement program.

Researchers at the University of California in San Diego discovered a brainwave pattern that hadn't been seen before. The frequency of this newly discovered brainwave, called GAMMA, was measured at 40 Hz (cycles per second). The researchers discovered that this new Gamma brainwave pattern was associated with a neurological phenomenon call binding. This is the process by which the brain gathers and integrates the information that arrives from all of our senses, binding them into a coherent whole. This synchronizes and coordinates all of our conscious perception, helping us to clarify the information and make sense of the world around us.

More recently, Richard Davidson, a neuroscientist at the University of Wisconsin-Madison's new W.M. Keck Laboratory for Functional Brain Imaging and Behavior, tested, through the cooperation of the Dalai Lama, the brain patterns of a group of Tibetan monks while they were in states of deep meditation. For this study, the monks were asked to meditate on the idea of "loving compassion."

Results showed the brainwaves activated in the brains of the monks were significantly different waves than those of the control group. Most importantly, the electrodes measured large amounts of Gamma waves in the monks, and found that the movement of these waves through the brain was better organized and coordinated than in the control group.

In additional Gamma studies, mental activities such as focus, memory, and learning have been associated with this same kind of neural activity in monks. Gamma waves found in monks have also been associated with the knitting together of disparate brain circuits, associated with states of higher mental activity and heightened awareness.

What this all means is that this newly discovered brainwave pattern -Gamma- is associated with several powerful states of consciousness including:

Deep Meditation, heightened perception and mental acuity, a sense of connection with the world around you, deepened compassion and loving kindness, enhanced self-awareness and clarity of mind.

CDs were created, specifically, around the Gamma wave input theory. They were designed by Dr. Jeffrey Thompson. The products are: "GAMMA MEDITATION SYSTEM" which focuses around the 40 Hz and a new product called "GAMMA MEDITATION SYSTEM 2.0" using an increased frequency of 100 Hz. The increase frequency is called Hypergamma and is associated with the benefits including:

Greater self-healing, awareness, focus, and understanding, more interconnectedness with nature and humanity, a higher perspective of your life and its purpose, removal of barriers to your personal transformation, an awakening of your inherent source of insight and inspiration, and deeper feelings of love and joy.

I often switch between using both Gamma CDs for about a half hour after I use HOLOSYNC. So, when combining both Gamma and HOLOSYNC, which takes about an hour, I get the most awesome mind workout you could ever imagine! HIGHLY RECOMMENDED! Of course, I train my mind longer than the minimal hour per day. Prior to training my mind, I couldn't have known where I was headed on my journey of life. Meditation has expanded my life to unknown and unseen territories. I am so happy to be able to help you on your journey of Brain Improvement and Life Improvement.

Also, in the product selection, you will find the headphones I use. They aren't the top of the line but are more than adequate for the range of soundwaves and they also block outside noise. I also recommend the portable CD player and its charger. It has a headphone jack and it can be set on continuous replay.

I do want to mention here that downloaded soundwave CDs to an MP3 player or I-tunes are NOT effective. Something is lost in the conversion. So keep that in mind.

We have a variety of product options in our Brain Store. You may find other products that will help you with your specific needs.
