In this episode we will learn how sound waves and tones can have a profound affect on your mental health and well-being, assist with meditation , and relieve anxiety. A new hand-held meditation partner name N.O.W.was developed as a personal short cut or secret passage around the traffic jam of your thinking mind …..a direct route that gets you back to your essential self much more quickly than years of meditative practice. technologies of sound help people transcend the anxiety and strife caused by the mind’s propensity toward judgment––of people, places and things. We help people experience the benefits of a non-judgmental awareness of the “is-ness” of the present moment without the need to mentally learn new principles. They are thus better able to respond to the challenges and opportunities in their lives with the clarity of awakened presence, rather than from emotion-laden judgmental reactivity I have a conversation with Michael Joly he is the founder of solu, the maker of the n.o.w. Tone Therapy meditation device. Prior to solu Michael designed a range of professional and consumer audio products for motion picture sound, home theatre and recording studio use. He has long immersed himself in the study of metaphysics and is focused on the intersection of sound, listening and consciousness. He believes the heart must lead the mind; in that race, he says he’s neck and neck––with his heart pulling ahead. Find out more at
