  Music for concentration

The Sound Health Series is based upon clinical investigations into psychoacoustics- the study of the effect of music and sound on the human nervous system. Sound Health recordings are designed to improved ear and brain function while providing a delightful listening experience.

We are often asked "What makes these recordings different and effective?" The answer, simply, is ABT's unique combination of science and art. Scientific research demonstrates what many people already know: certain music helps to accelerate learning, focus attention, and enhance health. Accessing three decades of clinical experience, ABT has identified components of music and sound that produce physical and mental states conducive to specific activities.

The music of the Sound Health Series has been re-arranged according to proven techniques. Although the melodies may seem familiar, all the music has been meticulously re-structured in vibrant new recordings to maximize effectiveness for your well-being. ABT's skillful blending of art and science results in beautiful soundtracks that enhance health, learning, and productivity.

Advanced Brain Technologies (ABT) creates music and sound programs for those seeking therapeutic, educational, and self-improvement benefits. Collaborating with leaders in neuro-development, education, music, and psychoacoustics, ABT produces innovative brain-based products and technologies. ABT, in association with the Center for Psychoacoustic Research, is pioneering the development of sound programs for specific uses.

  Being in control

This book is not only for children with problems, its comprehensive contents are very sound, for children and for many adults also. Its colorful and the graphics are warm and friendly. Its positive message on all the pages, is something I would hope my children will reflect and act on everyday. The issues covered are not that comprehensive in themselves, but there again at this small cost. I think
the author has done a lot of research and relayed great sensitivity and caring. I would recommend this inexpensive book be part of every child's library.
Well done.

  Yoga Beats the Blues: Boost Your Mood, Energy, and Concentration With Easy 5, 10, and 15-Minute Yoga Routines

Yoga is well known for its ability to calm nerves while it creates a fit body. In Yoga Beats the Blues, fitness writer and yoga instructor Donna Raskin offers 20-minute routines that alleviate anxiety and depression while improving memory and concentration.
Fully illustrated, this book makes it easy for even a beginner to achieve a relaxed, happy state of mind.

You'll learn how to breathe your way through a crisis at work, the simple stretches that can help you undo nervousness, and the best way to calm down after a difficult conversation.

I picked this up at the bookstore, mainly because I was looking for a beginner's guide to yoga, and this seemed to fit the bill. The routines are simple and I really like the author's reassuring tone. The fact that the routines can also be done in as little as 5 minutes is also a big plus.
 

  Concentration a Guide to Mental Mastery

In the late 1960's and early 70's there was a phrase that was made popular which went, "Tell it the way it is." It came about as a result of the falsehoods which society was being inundated with from all sides of life. People, and especially the young people of that time, were tired of being lied to. In this book, published over four decades ago, Mouni Sadhu "tells it the way it is" in regard to the art and discipline of meditation. He pulls no punches and does not try to sugar coat the cold, hard facts about the development of the ability to concentrate and its necessity in being able to meditate properly.
Mouni Sadhu is the religious name taken by a Westerner who studied with Sri Ramana Maharshi, a famous and much beloved Indian spiritual teacher who passed away at the mid-point of the twentieth century. The word "mouni" means "silent" and "sadhu" refers to a wandering holy man of the Hindu faith. Though the author had tried many paths on the route to self-realization, it wasn't until he came upon his Indian teacher Sri Ramana that he managed to successfully break through the ego's hard exterior and into the infinity of being. He is therefore a bona fide spokesman for the truths which he recollects in this book.

Written in a simple and easily understandable style, Concentration is a classic among books on the art of meditation. Published, as it was, before our fascination with things "New Age," it dispels many of the myths and misconceptions that have arisen and been promoted out of that movement. And for this reason alone, for the preservation of the truth, it is worth its weight in gold.

First and foremost among the myths it dispels is the idea that developing concentration is really of no consequence in the practical application of the art of meditation, as some so-called New Age gurus would have people believe. This is like saying that for an automobile to function properly it doesn't need gasoline! Without the ability to concentrate, our efforts at meditation will result only in going nowhere, in spinning our wheels in an unending rut.

Concentration is the cornerstone upon which our ability to engage ourselves in true meditation is based. Without its proper development it is as though we are in a car without a steering wheel. We have no way of directing ourselves toward our ultimate goal.

A second myth that is dealt with, which has been promoted in recent years, is that it is not important to be able to develop within oneself the ability to quiet the mind of all extraneous thoughts. This is the subject of Chapter Fourteen wherein is given a method of beginning to develop this ability to quiet the mind. In his usual straightforward way, Mouni Sadhu states quite unequivocally, "The key to success in this study is just the losing of interest in uncontrolled thinking. With that key you may open the golden gate, from which you expect so much. Without the key, there is no purpose in even beginning the exercises."

Mouni Sadhu gives a powerful presentation of all the aspects leading up to the attainment of the ability to concentrate, structuring the book into four sections. The first seven chapters deal with the definition, method, use, and roll of concentration in a spiritual search. The next seven chapters cover the psychological preliminaries and the keys to successful use of the techniques (which themselves are outlined in the third section of seven chapters) for developing concentration. The last chapter, Twenty-Two, deals with what he calls "guided intuitional knowledge, also called the wisdom of the Self, which is the ultimate aim of concentration." Here, whether you are a beginner or an old hand in working with the mind, is a compendium of inspiring information in the practical experience of the higher states of consciousness, useful in helping one to corroborate one's own experience with someone who has been there.

In this slender book, Mouni Sadhu manages to cover a great deal of important ground for the person interested in developing his mental faculties. Though he states at the outset that such abilities are not easily won, he does encourage the reader to follow his own inclinations regarding the level of commitment he is willing to make. He stresses not getting ahead of oneself, but to take it one step at a time. This is all one need do to have success with these exercises.
