About SoundSelf:  Use your voice to generate a hypnotic world of light, color, and sound.

Now, more than ever, the stresses of daily life grind us down. A strong meditation practice helps us feel more at peace and ready to meet the world.  But those very stresses make it difficult to form a practice. The constant pressure distracts the monkey brain, and we drift into anxiety instead of stillness. SoundSelf induces a meditative state.  SoundSelf will gently lull you into meditation by engaging you in a centuries-old practice called "toning."  You'll breathe deeply and exhale in long extended tones, SoundSelf will produce audio/video feedback to shift you into meditation. Relax and let go.
