the shaman’s drum and silva ultra mind

Interesting hypothesis – binaural more effective than isochronic.I imagine shamanic drumming to produce theta waves would be isochronic. And I know the Silva Method beat is a simple beat at the alpha rhythm with nothing binaural.

But then we have some good binaural programs as well – The Monroe Institute comes to mind.

The advantage of isochronic is you can just blast a radio outside the tank and still get entrained. I know. The Silva Method beat is freely available and the 2nd strongest meditation technique I’ve done in the tank.

The number one technique I did today but will not mention anything about for at 6 more days as I work with it more and more.

Hi Bobby,

Here are two brands of underwater earphones and cases that I have used.

Here is an opensource binaural beats generator program to create specific frequencies (I have not used it)

This is the most exhaustive list of frequencies and their effects on the body that I have come across.

Although I haven’t experimented with them, isochronic tones are said to produce the same effect as a binaural beat, but without the need for isolating the ears, it simply uses a beat that plays out in the body as a frequency. In my undereducated opinion, it seems that binaural beats would be more effective because it is creating the effect with a more enhanced structure, but this is only my guess.


Thanks for your very interesting reply, Kane. I spoke with the dentist who is the facial nerve specialist here in Phoenix. He was the one who was finally able to diagnose what was happening. He said the stimulus activation (I don’t want to label it “pain”, because that is an association I do NOT want to make)  was NOT connected to head and neck position or relaxation. So, I am very interested in what you can come up with on rhythms/pulses for brain distraction or calming or whatever we should call it.

Of course, then I will have to find a way to hear it. The float center I used has a factory installed digital system and I do not think I can bring in my own CD. I  want to build my own outdoor open float pool (Phoenix, AZ), now that I know floating is not effecting my nerves on a body-positioning level. So, how do you think I could listen? Are there underwater I-Phones now? (yeah, I can Google that question, but I’d like to know others experiences).
