Brainwave Curious? & PlantWave (C4NM)

Join Joshua W Bruner for a unique meditative listening experience at C4NM where we’ll practice ambient listening techniques while drifting to soundscapes created with an Electroencephalophone (EEG) and various virtual instruments. He’ll be joined by the founder of PlantWave (MidiSprout), Joe Patitucci, who will also be generating ambient music in collaboration with plants and discussing the new updates in store for the PlantWave device. https://www.kickstarter.com/projects/datagarden/plantwave

Research into how our brain processes sound suggests that music has a profound effect on brain function. Sonic techniques using pink noise, auditory beat stimulation, and nature sounds offer us inexpensive stress relief, improved sleep, sharper memory recall, and relief from pain and depression.

During this event we’ll learn about how we can use bioambient music to help shape our consciousness and improve our overall health and wellbeing. Sound has been guiding humans into meditative states since the beginning of our existence and continues to influence our past, present, and future self.

Joshua teaches classes at Anchor Meditation Studio in San Francisco with a focus on guiding listeners into relaxed states of being through the power of biologically timed sound frequencies, vibroacoustics, neurofeedback, and plant biofeedback.

Brainwave Curious?

Wednesday 7/17 7:30pm
We’ll get up close and personal with each of our brainwave states and learn how they shape the way we interact with the world. We’ll also explore modern sonic entrainment techniques such as binaural beats, monaural beats, and isochronic tones to understand why they're neurologically exciting for humanity. By becoming more familiar with these brain frequencies we can shape our consciousness and visit profound meditative states with more ease. Lastly, we'll discuss what’s to gain by looking into the mirror of our own minds with modern neurofeedback meditation devices like the Muse headband. Join us in this experiential and adventurous meditation class!
