The Healing Nature of Sound -
80 Minutes, VHS, $30
Highlights of Swiss scientist, Dr. Hans Jenny's pioneering experiments
showing how audible sound can excite such diverse substances
as lycopodium powder, iron filings, water, glycerin and turpentine
into life-like, flowing forms. These patterns reflect a variety
of forms found throughout nature, and viewing their dynamics
elicits an intuitive understanding of the invisible forces which
underlie natural processes, from the movements of amoebae to
the formation of galaxies.
In the second part of this program Jonathan Goldman, top-selling
New Age author (Healing Sounds) and musician (Chakra Chants CD),
interviews British physician, Dr. Peter Guy Manners, who developed
a therapeutic device based on the principles of Cymatics. In
Part Three, Dr. Manners demonstrates the Cymatic Applicator,
which resonates body tissue with audible sound.

This film details Dr. Jenny's experiments using audible frequencies
to create complex flowing patterns in lycopodium powder. Different
frequencies generate circulatory patterns which closely resemble
sun spots and solar flares, or the formation and rotation of
spiral galaxies. Unusual three-dimensional formations arise which
seem to defy gravity and laws of motion, but all adhere strictly
to the dynamics of the generating tone.
This program also shows how a semi-liquid paste creates intricate
and elaborate geomorphic patterns as it solidifies under the
effect of vibration. The correlation with actual geological phenomena
is striking, and provides a basis for understanding how oscillation
is involved in the realm of the earth sciences.
