Your Body Is a Cathedral: How Sound Heals

Posted By Gaiam Staff On July 30, 2012 @ 4:43 pm In Health & Wellness, Yoga | No Comments

Sound can be used for good, and sound can be used for ill, says Suzanne Sterling [1], a performing artist known for her joyful chanting [2] at yoga [3] festivals and other gatherings around the world. (Some examples of using sound for good are sonograms or sound waves being used to destroy tumors.) You can harness the power of sound [4] to create healing inside the body. To do that, Sterling says, you must learn to keep sound within the body [5] — to turn your body into a cathedral that resonates harmonic, restorative health [6].

Watch this video and go out into the world using sound for good!
