Curious? Read on for more information…
In a nutshell, MindPlace systems use light and sound pulses at specific frequencies, to stimulate your brain waves and move you into different states of consciousness.
For instance, you can listen to a session designed to slow your brainwaves down from an ultra alert state (such as Beta), to lower frequency Theta brainwaves that are associated with meditation and relaxation. You can read more about this technology here.
All you have to do is choose one of the 50 or more pre-programmed sessions, put on the headphones and ganzframes (Ganz Feld effect frames), sit back, relax and let your mind follow the frequencies. Just listen to a session a day (which can be as short as 5 minutes or as long as 45 minutes), and before you know it, you’ll be feeling the benefits. The more you use it, the better you’ll feel. It really is that easy!
It truly is a revolution for the beginning meditator to experience a depth of relaxation that, without a MindPlace system, would usually take many years of meditation practice to achieve.
There is ample evidence demonstrating the effectiveness of light and sound systems to induce states of relaxation – you can read more about the research here.
At the Calm Store, we sell two models of MindPlace products – the Limina and the Kasina. The Limina has been designed to be a more affordable sound and light system. The Kasina is MindPlace’s best selling, fully featured system, and includes a built in mp3 player.
All units come with a two year warranty (one year for the Ganzframes). MindPlace products are designed to be user friendly, but should you need additional support, extensive online resources are available here.
MindPlace have been designing meditation aids since 1988, longer than any other company. They have a well-earned reputation for producing very high quality, user-friendly products at the best possible price.
Just one word of caution – these systems are NOT suitable for everyone. They should not be used by people with brain or neurological disorders (e.g., epilepsy) which may be triggered or aggravated by rapid light fluctuations. They should not be used by people taking certain types of medications and should not be used by children. You can read the full medical disclaimer here.
It is also important to note that MindPlace products are not intended for use in the diagnosis, treatment or cure of any physical or mental condition or dysfunction.
