BUFFALO, NY, July 03, 2014 /24-7PressRelease/ -- Over 35 years ago, in an era where many Jews were being influenced by the Transcendental Meditation (TM) movement, The Lubavitcher Rebbe an advocate of Sound Healing, spoke out about the importance of creating a meditation format that Jewish people can benefit from without dabbling in Eastern Religious practices and roots. Although his focus was on observant Jews, there is and has been a need for neutral and medically focused sound healing, for people that is religiously neutral. In response to the Rebbe's unheeded call, Wallen has created a unique set of sound therapy recordings called NOGA Sound Solutions, Vol. 1.
"The Rebbe spoke about meditation as medication," said Wallen, he was telling us how helpful meditation is. This was back in the 70's, before MRI's existed. Today the positive effect is even visible on brain scans. If the Rebbe saw the need for people to disconnect from all of the stimuli back in the '70s, before laptops, smartphones, social media, texting, etc., how much more so is it critical for our mental, emotional and physical well-being, now?!"
The Rebbe's vision, coupled with an ever-growing need in today's society for people to learn to unwind and unplug from the constant bombardment of 21st century stimuli, renowned Chabad speaker and psychotherapist Rus Devorah Wallen, LCSW is making headway to finally disseminate the Rebbe's wish. Drawing on her musical background, her 25 years of professional therapeutic experience, and her extensive knowledge of sound healing and meditation
The album uses researched-based techniques that observant Jews, as well as people from all backgrounds and religious practices, will be comfortable using. It is designed to help individuals learn to take time out from the stress and pressures of today's world. "I've been developing relaxation recordings for the past 15 years for private use with my clients and students," said Wallen, "and I've seen that healing audio is one of the most useful tools in my arsenal."
The NOGA Sound Solutions CD provides simple, meditations and relaxation exercises. There will be over 20 recordings, including safe place guided imagery; body scan; progressive muscle relaxation (PMR); basic beginner's meditations; a children's meditation; and a longer, more advanced meditation. These recordings will also be available with additional sound healing tracks (such as nature sounds and more), so individuals can personalize their practice.
Wallen said, "Listeners will experience improvement of mood and energy, a decrease in anxiety, and even an enhanced immune response. By doing even 5-10 minutes a day, one will begin to feel benefit within a short time. The recordings will enable people to help nurture and heal themselves as they learn to take a time out. By listening to these recordings, people have the opportunity to practice an act of self-compassion that I hope they will embrace!"
Wallen has taken a unique approach to this project, by launching an Indiegogo Campaign, with the goal of raising awareness and completing production of this very important work. You can get more information and pre-order the album at (http://bit.ly/1mxeFfL)
