Now, thanks in large part to his efforts, it has become mainstream medicine. Dozens of studies have since shown the benefits of what he termed Mindfulness-Based Stress Reduction (MBSR) in treating cardiovascular disease, depression, addictions, chronic pain and many other conditions. Kabat-Zinn has authored a new book, Mindfulness for Beginners that aims to introduce meditation to first-timers.
Binaural beats To experience the binaural beats illusion it is best to listen to this file with headphones on moderate to weak volume – the sound should be easily heard, but not loud. Note that the sound appears to pulsate.
We experience binaural beats when we hear two different frequencies, one in each ear. The binaural beat is defined as the difference between the two pitches. For example, if you hear a 200Hz sound in one ear and a 190Hz sound in the other you’ll hear a 10Hz binaural beat because 200 - 190 = 10. Think of a binaural beat as an auditory artifact.
