The Third Ear

“Let your eye catch the sound; then you will finally understand.”
– Zen Monk Tozan, 9th Century

Whether it is Gregorian Chant, Mozart or an Indian Raga, music and sound have been tools for healing and worship in all cultures and throughout the ages. It is
only recently, however, that we have become able to maximise its power through new technologies, among which are the tools developed by Alfred Tomatis.

Chanting, singing; any vocal exercises, while using the Electronic Ear and a microphone, can have an uplifting effect. We can write a programme for you based on the initial listening test. Those who are interested in experimenting with vocal exercises that they already know, and perhaps combining them with what we offer, are also more than welcome to bring their own music.

These active sessions – exploring your own voice from within – are always alternated, combined with periods of listening passively while drawing, painting, or simply relaxing.

Most protocols contain a lot of Gregorian Chant, preferably the ones that Tomatis himself recorded in his favourite monastry in France. These chants do not have a fixed metre and follow the natural rhythm of breath. In addition to a charging effect on the cerebral cortex, listening t these chants has a strong calming effect on our heart rate. An ideal basis for going deeper, in case you want to meditate during your session.
