Once you experience the Zen Timepiece's progressive tones, you'll never want to meditate any other way.
New research indicates chanting and meditation help enhance mind/body health and balance. A study by the University of California-San Diego, the Alzheimer’s Prevention Foundation International, and the Amen Clinic of Newport Beach, California, found that Kirtan Kriya, a simple twelve minute Kundalini yoga meditation, increased oxygen delivery, blood flow, and energy in the brain, while improving neurotransmitter (chemical messengers of the brain that communicate with the body) function.
Kirtan Kriya involves chanting the Sanskrit words ‘Sa’ (meaning birth or cosmos), ‘Ta’ (life), ‘Na’ (completion), and ‘Ma’ (signifying rebirth). Here’s how to practice it: Repeat ‘Sa Ta Na Ma’ with your eyes closed while sitting with a straight spine; focus your mental energy on the area between your eyebrows. For two minutes, chant in your normal speaking voice; for the following three minutes, whisper. For the next three minutes, chant silently. Then reverse the order; whispering for two minutes and chanting the mantra aloud for two minutes. Enjoy your enlightenment!
It's exquisite sounds summon your consciousness out of your meditative state with a series of subtle gongs.
Use our unique “Zen Clock” which functions as a Yoga & Meditation Timer. It features a long-resonating acoustic chime that brings your meditation or yoga session to a gradual close, preserving the environment of stillness while also acting as an effective time signal. Our Yoga Timer & Clock can be programmed to chime at the end of the meditation or yoga session or periodically throughout the session as a kind of sonic yantra. The beauty and functionality of the Zen Clock/Timer makes it a meditation tool that can actually help you “make time” for meditation in your life. Bring yourself back to balance.
