Music and meditation are two of the greatest tools to quiet a racing mind, and when you combine them — a practice called sound meditation — the calming effect is amplified. 

I recently went to the studio of Alexandre Tannous, a therapist, ethnomusicologist, and sound researcher, to experience sound meditation (a.k.a, sound bathing) for the first time. He played various instruments during the experience: gongs, Tibetan singing bowls, bells, etc. — and the effect totally blew my mind. Watch the full video (above) to see what happened.
