How Sound Enters My Body

Sunday, January 9, 2011 by Michelle

I was at a 'sound and healing' event some time ago, and the person leading it asked, "Where and how do you experience sound in your body?" That's an odd question, I thought. Intrigued, I began to really pay attention to how and where sounds are felt in my body. I discovered that deeply resonant sounds, like when a large group of people chant "OM", are felt as a pleasant vibration deep in my chest. And the chime of a small gong, I wrote the haiku below to describe what it's like for me.

The little gong chimes
Small fish swim through my belly
Generating peace

Where do you experience sound in your body?
