About Brainwave Wellness

Recognizing the energetic aspect of the body is vital for managing wellness. Brainwave technology guides us toward a new paradigm for understanding the full dimensionality of being human, which moves healthcare a step forward in personalized treatment. Featured here are new applications, technologies, and practices that stimulate body energy, opening channels of knowledge yet to be explored.

Brainwave Music

Currently, researchers and practitioners are exploring the effect of sound on the body. In earlier times the music of the spheres was a popular concept introducing the idea that the motion of planets and other entities in the cosmos produce music at varying frequencies, which can be heard either consciously or unconsciously.

The harmonious rhythms of this music were said to influence human activity making babies smile when they hear the harmonic rhythms.  The choreography of T’ai Chi Ch’uan is designed to be spherical, and energy created from the movement is  referred to as Qi.

In 1994 a bio-recliner was being tested at the Human Performance Institute of the Loma Linda University Rehabilitation Center in California. The chair was designed to input music through sensors located at key places in the chair for interaction with the physical body. Varying styles of music would be played, and the reactions of a person in the chair were monitored and analyzed.  At the Special Interest Group for Computer Graphics and Interactive Techniques (SIGGRAPH) Conference that year, an exhibit for The Edge Exhibition made the chair available for conference attendees.  Additionally, a brainwave interface system was used to monitor brainwave frequencies, amplitudes, and coherence to analyze ...

Brainwave Music Album

Original tracks on the Brainwave Morphing Virtual Album by Paras Kaul are brainwave-generated music compositions with voiceovers in some of the compositions. Alyson Krayer is the drummer on the PeaceStreams track. These audio tracks were composed  as a virtual music album that addresses life changes with transformations that lead us from chaos and stress to peace and calmness. In a broader sense the transformation refers to the transition that occurs as war evolves to peace. On an individual level, the album suggests the personal transformation that occurs when we calm chaotic brainwaves to low frequency alpha and theta coherent brainwaves.

The “Brain On Om” concludes the album, ending with low frequency, coherent brainwave music. Before producing the brainwave music for the album, Kaul spent two days fasting and meditating in order to focus her attention and basically tune her brainwave activity to frequencies she felt were ideal for the compositions. Though Kaul has no formal background in music, she has studied music composition and produced brainwave music with well-known composers,  Steve Antosca and Mark Applebaum. More recently she has studied with Glenn E. Smith and adds brainwave music ...

Brainwave Gaming

Prototypes for brainwave games developed by Paras Kaul utilize the Interactive Brainwave Visual Analyzer (IBVA), a biofeedback interface system to the computer. Using IBVA and applications in Apple Inc.’s OS X operating system, three-dimensional gaming environments can be developed that facilitate neurological learning and healing. Neurological game design combines multimedia with brainwave data to accelerate learning by training the brain to function with coherent, low frequency neural activity, thus expanding perception and activating capabilities, such as nonverbal communication and self-healing.

  • Meditation Appears to Cause Changes in Brain’s Gray Matter

    US News: Health Day News

    The meditation group participants spent an average of 27 minutes a day doing mindfulness meditation exercises. The MRI scans taken after the eight-week program revealed increased gray matter density in the hippocampus (important for learning and memory) and in structures associated with compassion and self-awareness.

  • The Brain Trainers

    by Dan Hurley Neuroscience Reporter

    Unlike traditional tutoring services that seek to help students master a subject, brain training purports to enhance comprehension and the ability to analyze and mentally manipulate concepts, images, sounds and instructions. In a word, it seeks to make students smarter.

  • Brainwave Morphing Abstract

    Abstract for Brainwave Morphing and Qigong for Rehabilitation Workshop

    Brainwave morphing is a process that combines multimedia, gaming, and interactive brainwave technology for biofeedback analysis. Similar to a conductor leading an orchestra, morphing trains the mind to direct the brain’s performance to respond to positive thought. Qigong enhances the mind’s direction for the brain to emit low frequency alpha and theta brainwaves with increased coherence between left and right hemispheres. Brainwave morphing entrains the brain for low frequency coherence, which accelerates learning and self-healing, thus valuable for rehabilitation, such as trauma recovery.

  • APRIL 28, 2018 FREE EVENT: MEADOWLARK BOTANICAL GARDENS, VIENNA, VA
    10:00am-1:00pm

    On the last Saturday of April each year at 10 am, tens of thousands, in 100s of cities, spanning 80 nations, join together to celebrate World Tai Chi & Qigong Day. Come be a part of this global event. See demonstrations, Mini-Classes, Healing Garden and hear students from the George Mason University Healing Arts Ensemble who will add the sound of quartz crystal singing bowls and drums! The event is free and ends with a free lunch for all.

    Peaceable Dragon and Meadowlark Botanical Gardens invite you to watch demonstrations of various forms of internal arts including Taijiquan (Tai Chi) and Qigong (Chi Kung). Following the demonstrations, you may participate in mini-classes taught by some of the area’s leading instructors from a variety of schools and disciplines. Also, visit our “Healing Garden” and explore Chinese Medicine, Massage, Reiki and other types of wellness therapies. Come and join the fun! Peaceable Dragon is a community of instructors and students of Qigong, Taijiquan, Yoga, Aikido, Reiki and other internal arts, who share a desire to improve their physical, mental and spiritual health.

  • Paras Kaul will be presenting brainwave wellness and new media at the Torpedo Factory in Alexandria. Using EEG and brainwave interactive media, the degree of coherence between the brain’s right and left hemispheres provides a representation of an individual’s energetic condition. Disciplines that incorporate meditative practices lower brainwave frequencies, which stimulates the flow of energy in the body. Combining new media and stillness practices has the potential to accelerate learning processes and expand human consciousness, thus facilitating the evolutionary process.

    The DC SIGGRAPH (Special Interest Group for Computer Graphics and Interactive Techniques) has partnered with the Torpedo Factory to feature presentations related to technology and new media.
