Woodstock Chimes releases chimes for meditation

Company offers growing assortment of products for meditation movement

SHOKAN, N.Y. – Woodstock Chimes, a leading manufacturer of musically tuned windchimes, offers an ever growing array of products suitable for meditation practice, something that the company says has picked up steam in recent years.

“As a professional musician, I have long been aware of the connection between sound and health,” says Garry Kvistad, founder and owner of Woodstock Chimes and a GRAMMY® Award-winning musician. “The sound of our chimes, bells and gongs is achieved through precise, ancient methods, which result in a high degree of purity. Calming background music can play an integral role in meditation. There are even optimal notes and frequencies for this.

The Woodstock Meditation Chime is one of three products in the Woodstock Chimes Soloist Series. Each chime in the series includes a bonus CD of original music, which aims to focus the mind through meditative improvisation. This chime is tuned to a scale that is heard in some of the music of southern India and is made using cherry finish ash wood and eight silver aluminum tubes. The bonus CD includes original music by composer and meditation practitioner Art Lindemanis and Kvistad, written to harmonize with the chime’s “solo” performance. It measures 39 inches in overall length.

The Healing Gong (HG) is a bronze and black hand-hammered bull’s-eye gong, measuring 10 inches in diameter. It hangs from a three-piece wooden top made of black and cherry finish ash wood and measures 30 inches in overall length. Handcrafted with traditional methods in use for thousands of years, this gong is designed so it can be played by hand or by the wind. Woodstock Chimes releases chimes for meditation

The Zenergy Chimes can be purchased with one, two, three or five tuned rods. Each Zenergy Chime includes a mallet. Sounding multiple rods at the same time produces a pulsating acoustical phenomenon known as “beating,” which can further enhance meditation.

Developed in partnership with jazz legend Jack DeJohnette and John Beaulieu, Ph.D., a world-renowned sound therapist, the Awakening Bell is intended to be used for sound healing and relaxation. The long sound duration of the bell naturally puts the listener into a Theta state, a relaxed state characterized by deep calm. Its sound, at the speed of 512 vibrations per second, is known to resonate with an area of the brain that helps control stress and induces a sense of well-being. It can be played by tapping or rubbing, like a Tibetan singing bowl.
