Perhaps some of you may have heard of the concept that healing music is delivered not by sound but by the space and silence in synergy with the sound. Or perhaps been shared a you tube video entitled : Scalus Interuptus. If you have, then you‘ve heard of Steven Halpern. Indeed, his time has finally come. A 2013 Grammy nomination for the Best New Age Album for hiswork entitled, "Deep Alpha". The CD , DEEP ALPHA: Brainwave Entrainment for Deep Meditation and Healing features the healing tones of the legendary Rhodes Mark 7 electric piano and subtle sustained harmonies. Behind the pleasant ambient music on DEEP ALPHA, Halpern’s scientifically-researched Aural-Sync™ brainwave synchronization tones gently guide one’s brain into a DEEP ALPHA state of 8 Hz (8 cycles per second), which naturally synchronizes with the fundamental harmonics of the earth itself. Simply by listening, one becomes naturally and almost immediately relaxed, rejuvenated and empowered for optimal healing and creativity.

An interview with
Dr. Magda Havas Magda Havas is Associate Professor of Environmental & Resource Studies at Trent University where she teaches and does research on the biological effects of environmental contaminants. Dr. Havas received her Ph.D. from the University of Toronto, completed Post-Doctoral research at Cornell University, and taught at the University of Toronto before going to Trent University in Peterborough, Canada.
Dr. Havas’s research since the 1990s is concerned with the biological effects of electromagnetic pollution including radio frequency radiation, electromagnetic fields, dirty electricity, andground current. She works with diabetics as well as with individuals who have multiple sclerosis, tinnitus, chronic fatigue, fibromyalgia and those who are electrically hypersensitive. She also conducts research on sick building syndrome as it relates to power quality in schools. Her most recent paper (October 22, 2010), documents definitive evidence that radiation from a cordless phone, common in many homes, causes heart arrhythmia and tachycardia (rapid heart rate) and alters the sympathetic and parasympathetic nervous system similar to a “fight-or-flight” stress response.
WILLIAM HENRY is an investigative mythologist, author, radio talk show host, seeker and teacher. In 2007 he is celebrating his 10th anniversary as a self-published author of 14 books and numerous DVD presentations. He has specialized in synthesizing myth and cutting edge modern science to reveal a startling but undeniable pattern of fact – that throughout history and across widely diverse cultures, there is an absolutely seamless traditionof the existence of gates to the stars, which have been preserved in the art and myths of each era and place. Beings that came from the light of the vastness of the Milky Way, and beyond, did so through these gatewaysand left the secrets of a Way to the Stars for us to discover. In his temple-quests in Egypt, France, Scotland and America William uncovered and followed a visual code of this Way to the Stars in ancient art. What he discovered and brought to the world’s attention is truly amazing. The symbolism used by the ancients to depict their gods traveling the stars matches that used by modern science to symbolize wormholes. William Henry’s breakthrough research on stargates in ancient art, myth and texts has been documented in his books and DVD programs. Hundreds of thousands of listeners hear him regularly as the co-host of Whitley Strieber’s Dreamland. He’s also a regular contributor on “Coast to Coast am” with George Noory.
