The Somadome is your personal sanctuary, a tool for transcendence. It uses light and binaural beats for meditation that leads to deep relaxation and calm.
The Science of Somadome
Binaural Beat Meditation
Somadome uses binaural beats to achieve beneficial states associated with your session goals.
Sound Influences Mood
Sounds have been used to heal for centuries. Tibetan monks have used singing bowls, gongs, and other instruments to help access meditative states for thousands of years. Binaural beats, as they are known today, were discovered in 1839 by physicist Heinrich Wilhelm Dove. While you may not have heard of binaural beats, most will relate to the idea that sound can impact feelings. Listening to a song with a slow tempo one may begin to feel sad, melancholy. Turn up the volume on a fast paced song one may feel excited, upbeat. Binaural beat meditation leverages the understanding of frequencies to promote wellbeing.
How it Works
When the right and the left ear hear sounds at different frequencies, the brain produces a third beat. This “binaural beat” is the difference in frequencies between what has been heard. This middle-ground frequency that your brain produces is completely inaudible and helps to guide your mind into natural brainwave states.
The brainwaves that are produced by the binaural beats are the same brainwaves experienced naturally throughout the day and night. Each of the five brainwave states are associated with different healing benefits
The binaural beats used during each meditation track have been carefully selected to maximize healing benefits.
Somadome provides a feeling of infinite space and illuminates in a spectrum of colour to promote healing.
Colour Affects us at Cellular Level
Colours have been used to heal for centuries. Ancient Egyptians used colour to treat ailments. Leonardo da Vinci proclaimed that you can increase the power of meditation ten-fold by meditating under the gentle rays of violet. Most of us can relate to the idea that colour can impact feelings. Wearing a red sweater one may feel bold, energetic. Walking into a light blue room, one may feel calm, serene. Colour therapy leverages this understanding to promote wellbeing.
How it Works
Colours create electrical impulses in our brains, which stimulate hormonal and biochemical processes in our bodies. Different colours cause different hormonal, or chemical reactions, in our body. Colour therapy then utilises different colour to promote needed mental and physical benefits.
The colours of the dome have been carefully selected to complement the goal of the Somadome session.
