There are so many ways to show up compassionately in this world. At CA, we often talk of 3-D compassion:¬†compassion for ourselves, compassion for others and compassion for the earth. And often I want to clone myself so I can be in two places at one time, maximizing my compassion ūüôā. I know that just leads to more frustration. So this week I give you (and me) permission to choose¬†1 of the 3-D areas of compassion. CA has two wonderful offerings this Thursday. Read below and decide if one speaks to you. And take a walk in nature, just to round things out.

Jonathan Adams describes how frequency, vibration and meditation can affect the way you think and feel. Did you know that, brainwaves and our thoughts themselves create frequency waves and are measured in “hertz”, just like sound waves? Sound therapy can help to encourage alpha and theta brainwaves which can lead to deep states of relaxation and creative insight. Learn how sound therapy can help to decrease stress, anxiety and more, while increasing mental well being and our ability to be compassionate with ourselves and others.

Studies have shown that focusing on objective feelings of compassion can cause brain waves to begin to function in a rhythmic, coherent and more harmonious way. As the mind focuses on this compassionate state the brain also creates more ‚Äúgamma‚ÄĚ brainwaves. Sound and sound therapy can also help to guide the mind toward specific brainwave states. Join us as we explore these relationships between sound, meditation and compassion.

Check out Adams’ TEDx presentation.
