Loving-Kindness Meditation and the Gamma Wave – A Marriage of Ancient Tradition and Modern Science
Of all the brainwave frequencies displayed by the human brain, perhaps the most fascinating is the Gamma wave, around 40 Hertz. When in a Gamma state, the brain seems capable of remarkable synergy, exhibiting a high level of holistic functioning that unites multiple senses, perceptions, and memories. In short, we become almost super-human. Interestingly, this state is commonly observed in experienced Tibetan monks engaging in a “loving-kindness” meditation. As we shall see, Gamma waves are not the only benefit of this practice.Is Location Important in Meditation?

In this article, we look at the emotional dimension of a later evolutionary structure – the subcortical region inherited from early mammals – and suggest practical ways to keep that little critter inside us happy.Getting Into the Rhythm of Binaural Beats With Brainwave Entrainment
The whole building trembled from the reverberations as the Japanese drummers of Kodo reached new crescendos. The traditional opera goers at New York’s Lincoln Center were engaged but not a toe was tapping. The rhythmic beats of the drums had lulled the crowd into a hypnotic trance. Drums have been altering states since ancient shamanic tribes began dancing on the earth, but the binaural beats behind this phenomenon have solely been observed consciously lately by modern man.
