In November 2008 Byron Metcalf and Mark Seelig generously gave of their time and talents to perform to a very appreciative crowd at our annual Kenosis Spirit Keepers Benefit Concert. If you were there you’d need no introduction to their work that takes you into another realm entirely. I’d like to revisit the reviews I gave at that time so that new readers are also aware.
Music by Byron Metcalf, Mark Seelig and Steve Roach
Byron Metcalf is an international recording artist who happens to live in my area. I had the good fortune to sample Nada Terma in his studio with all its high-quality sound technology — and the effect was memorable. The music itself was mesmerizing. What was so surprising were the vibrations it produced in my body, and the field surrounding it—that took me even deeper into the experience. Something totally unexpected.
I confess that I have about a 30 year-old sound system and no headset. So I was skeptical that the music would produce anywhere near the same result in my own home, but I was wrong. It was close in comparison and different segments of the CD generated energy movement focused in separate energy centers in my body.
Nada Terma is an immersion in mysticism through sound and vibration. The merging of ambient music, Tibetan-like toning and bansuri flute has an undulating quality that delivers the listener to a threshold. So that, when the gentle drumming finally appears, it’s a vehicle that delivers you into a sacred inner landscape. And then its rising insistence keeps you there.
Just as a writer or artist must embody their subject in order to convey it masterfully, it’s evident that Metcalf, Seelig and Roach have experienced deep states of consciousness themselves. We are fortunate that, through their grasp of these inner realms and trance music, we can be guided to such a place ourselves.
Nada Terma is translated as: discovering spiritual treasures through the world of sound—and it is that.
By Byron Metcalf (with Steve Roach)
Byron released this systematic learning program that draws on his many years of consciousness research. It’s meant to open spaces of the heart and create connections that allow deeper living. It’s a unique combination of Byron’s music, guided exercises and Hemi-Sync® pioneered by Robert Monroe which creates whole brain states. The 4-CD package with instructional materials builds upon itself to take you from discovering your heart connection…to working with your energy field…all the way to shamanic journeying and ecstatic breathwork. Additional materials are available to download online.
If you want to move beyond merely listening to Byron’s music into exploring the wider reaches of consciousness through the guidance of a very experienced teacher—and do it in your own home—this is an excellent way to go.
The Shaman’s Heart Program, Nada Terma…and more are all available now through Byron’s music website.
