Gongs are one of man's oldest therapeutic instruments and are believed to have a profound effect on the nervous system. They are reported to bring about relaxed and meditative states, aid in pain control, and decrease negative thought patterns, addictive behaviors, and depression. Many people use gong therapy every day to 'raise their vibration', which improves the quality of their thoughts and actions, and helps restore a state of inner balance.

In which Paul reads from "We Are All Very Anxious: Six Theses on Anxiety and Why It is Effectively Preventing Militancy, and One Possible Strategy for Overcoming It," and engages in conversation with a number of callers. This zine, recently acquired by your host for a modest two dollars at the Portland Zine Symposium, is attributed to "The Institute for Precarious Consciousness," with an afterword from the CrimethInc. Workers' Collective. Despite the somewhat whimsical nature of the title and this description, Paul finds this a very stimulating and provacative piece, well worth reading and discussing further. You can find it online by googling the title. Also check out the http://www.crimethinc.com website. 54:30 minutes (74.85 MB)
I had a very interesting talk with Douglas Bingley and Dianne Fouts about Higher Brain Living, a new process to activate the "Higher Brain" or Pre-Frontal Cortex, from which we can live with much less stress and far more creativity.
Douglas Bingley originally trained and worked as a LMT 23 years ago, became a breath work facilitator in re-birthing, then a certified teacher and practitioner of Still-point Breath-work and Aramaic forgiveness process under Dr. Michael Ryce. Doug was trained by Steven Thayer as an Integrated Energy Therapy Master facilitator, and added that work to his skill set. He most recently became aware of Higher Brain Living® , a revolutionary new personal empowerment technique developed and refined over 30 years by Dr. Michael Cotton. 63:24 minutes (58.05 MB)
