How to Calm a Sensitive Sensory System


Easily overwhelmed. Highly sensitive. Hyper-sensitive.

Does this describe you or your child? In this video, I show you how I calm a sensitive sensory system using muted tones and variable drumming rhythms at about 8 beats-per-second.

Alpha or Theta State for Meditation: Which is better?


Conduct an experiment to see if you prefer alpha or theta tempo drumming for your meditations. In this video, I play my gonga drum at 8 beats-per-second to drive your brain into the low end of the alpha state. Then I play rhythms at 5 1/2 beats-per-second to facilitate low-mid theta.

Focus Your Brain With Complex Drumming Rhythms


In this video, I play my Gonga drum at about 8 beats-per-second to focus your brain. Though these rhythms use the same tempo as the Calm for Anxiety rhythms of my last video, their complex structure will focus your nervous system – a sharp contrast from the musically-variable rhythms needed to calm anxiety.

In this video, I play my Gonga drum at about 7 beats-per-second to lift your mood. I draw from ancient drumming rhythms based on ceremonial archetypes used around the world.

Calm Your Anxiety


This is a classic REI track. It is played at roughly 8 bps (beats per second) and will sink you into an alpha state of consciousness, a relaxed-alert state. Not entirely in 4/4 time, the shifting rhythms and varying time signatures are an intrinsic component of REI content.
