“We must be STILL and STILL MOVING…” — T.S Eliot

PRIMARY GOALS & BENEFITS

It is not the intention of this program to compete with the countless exercise and yoga videos that promote strength, flexibility, endurance, balance, etc. For the most effective way to achieve these particular goals, please see Intuitive Yoga: The Original Method (page coming soon). Though these are also some of the direct benefits of doing Rhythm Therapy and Movement Medicine, they are strictly secondary to the primary goals and purpose – which is for the express purpose of ACTIVATING MILLIONS of BRAIN CELLS & NEURONAL PATHWAYS, BALANCING the R/L HEMISPHERES of the Brain, achieving a QUIET MIND, WHOLE-BRAIN LEARNING, total SENSORI-MOTOR MASTERY, and MEDITATION through Movement – plus any of the following practical benefits:

  • To instantly disengage the internal dialogue in order to achieve a quiet mind or inner silence ‚the primary pre-requisite to shifting into alternative modes of perception or heightened states of awareness. That is, the ability to experience or interpret sensory data without the use of the usual influence, interventions or interpretations of the rational or thinking mind
  • Strengthen the powers of concentration, discipline, will, intent and conscious attention (as opposed to the usual UN-conscious attention we function with in everyday life). Conscious attention is not simply total concentration, but it is distinguishable as having the awareness of an objective observer, what is known as ‘witness consciousness’ in yoga, mindfulness in Zen and the ‘second attention’ of Shamanism.
  • Promote physical and mental states of well-being
  • Cultivate, store and re-distribute ENERGY in the body
  • Restore balance to the autonomic nervous system, helping us break the habits ‘hurry-worry’ and always being in the stress response (‘fight or flight’ – making it a novel and fun way to accomplish STRESS & DEPRESSION MANAGEMENT
  • ACTIVATES millions of the countless brain cells that lie IN-active or dormant
  • to facilitate consciousness and heightened awareness
  • to repattern & reprogram our neuro-muscular system by creating new sensori-motor pathways & revamping the older inefficient ones that are causing musculo-skeletal dysfunction, pain and inefficiency of movement
  • Enhance and regain our sensori-motor control, balance and coordination by using our kinesthetic senses to their limits – then going beyond that limit.
  • Rhythm Therapy is an ideal and rapid track system for facilitating WHOLE BRAIN learning & functioning by balancing and integrating: (a) the right with the left hemispheres of the brain, and the linear and logical with the intuitive and psychic functions of the mind, (b) the frontal lobes (focus and concentration), (c) the newer brain functions (cerebral cortex and abstract thought) with the instinctive functions of the old brain (midbrain and brainstem).
  • Rhythm Therapy and Muscle Brain Integration is also the ideal preventative and remedial measure for clumsiness, poor balance & coordination, dyslexia, Attention Deficit Syndromes, poor memory, mental decline and other learning disabilities and physical developmental challenges in both children and adults

BENEFITS & MODUS OPERANDI

As the basic level patterns are mastered, one proceeds to more advanced levels of exercises by adding other dimensions of difficulty to the exercises to ensure the sensori-motor system is always fully engaged, and the internal dialogue dis-engaged. Forcing both brain and body (sensori-motor system) to retain full cognizance and control of the unique movements simultaneously allows one to achieve a state of inner silence more easily and quickly than in sitting or still meditation (especially for Westerners). The TOTAL ATTENTION required in order to perform such an activity forces the brain into a mandatory state of non-thinking and the body into a state of corporal perception where the usual thinking process has no place or function! Meditative states of balanced awareness occur spontaneously when the mind is made clear and the body energized.

The IMMEDIATE EFFECTS and the RAPID RESULTS of performing Rhythm Therapy and Movement Medicine speaks for itself, as you shall see (or feel). The effectiveness of the movements is not measured by the time spent or the sheer number of repetitions, but by the feeling created. On a practical level, as with any true meditation, the aim is to carry any feeling of silent balanced awareness, mental clarity, energy, joy, relaxation or state of well being achieved during Rhythm Therapy into all our everyday activities.

IMMEDIATE EFFECTS

Partially learned in the dream state – a place where much of the humanity’s guidance and advancement in knowledge has revealed itself – Rhythm Therapy is a specialized form of Movement Meditation, a modern application of ancient technologies along the lines of Sufi Dervish dancing, Tai Chi, Qigong, Yoga and Shamanism. Rhythm Therapy is a unique art and science of performing specific patterns of rhythmic whole-body movements with precision, and grace, and done with the specific intent to engage ones total attention sufficiently to shut out all outside distractions and allow one to focus ones attention within.

Such focused and conscious attention on the movements, rhythm and breath serves to curtail the usual thinking process (ie: the internal dialogue), offsetting the restrictions and limitations imposed by language, verbalization and conceptualized thinking. One can thereby attain sufficient inner silence, stillness and relaxation to achieve all the DIRECT BENEFITS of MEDITATION (as listed below), as well as the added benefits of whole-brain learning, sensori-motor re-patterning and neuro-muscular reeducation. These added benefits cannot be accomplished via still or sitting meditation, only through intricate rhythmic patterns done with precision and awareness in movement.

Muscle Brain Testimonials
  • I use your mind medicine all the time! So awesome!!! I love how people get so focused when they are trying to movements for the first time.

  • Hello Tone, I would just like to thank you for making your Muscle-Brain Integration DVD’s. I have Volume 1 and it is truly amazing. The benefits are, as you said, immediate. I have shared your techniques with some family members and they were equally impressed and are now hooked! I can personally attest to an improvement in my concentration at work, an increase in my memory, coordination and of course numerous other benefits. I still practice sitting meditation but your techniques immediately put me in the “Zone” and they are much more fun! I’m still learning all of the Geo-metrical Hand jives but would like to order the rest of your more advanced levels. Thank you in advance. read more

  • Hey Tone, I’ve watched the first DVD, Hand Jives vol 1, twice and think I am starting to get the HANG of it. I’m already noticing the benefits of feeling MORE BALANCED & FOCUSED!! I have to say this is one of the most impressive therapies that I’ve come across in a while. Thanks for sharing such delightful and insightful ‘Muscle-Brain Integration’ techniques. I will let you know how it goes as I go further and deepen my practice. One thing I notice for sure is that while I’m sleeping I’m practicing in my dream state and the next day I get better at the exercises. Thanks again, and it was a pleasure to meet you. I love the Whirlin-Dervish Muscle-Brain video. Thanks for sharing! VERY IMPRESSIVE!!!  :)))) read more

  • Whether it’s between nations or mind and body, integration seems to be a key factor in health. Using this DVD, produced by a physical therapist, in a few short minutes I was able to integrate a bilateral movement I had been working on for years with no success. This information is a perfect complement for anyone seeking mind-body integration by increasing hemispheric balance in the brain.

  • Tone, you are amazing. I can see now what you were talking about. I had no clue my brain was so dis-integrated (and I am a yogi, a dancer, ice skater and an artist). Thank you for your creativity and genius. Wow, I feel honored to know you. Blessings, good luck, keep creating, it is awesome.

  • IMPECCABILITY begins with a single act that has to be DELIBERATE, PRECISE and SUSTAINED. If that act is repeated long enough one acquires a sense of UNBENDING INTENT which can be applied to ANYTHING else. If that is accomplished the road is clear. One thing will lead to another until the warrior realizes his full potential!

Left Brain or Right Brain?
left brain or right brain

HERE IS YOUR FIRST RIGHT/LEFT BRAIN TEST

Is the doll spinning clockwise or counter-clockwise???

Is she bouncing on her right leg or her left leg???

Are you absolutely sure? If so, keep looking!

If she spins right & bounces on left leg you are left brain dominant.

If she spins left & bounces on right leg you are right brain dominant.

If she SWITCHES legs or directions more than once, seek psychiatric help immediately!! Better yet! Just balance your brain through Rhythm Therapy & Muscle-Brain Integration and save$$$! .

It’s FUNNER, QUICKER, CHEAPER and far more EFFECTIVE! Shrinks shrink … Muscle Brain EXPANDS!

5.12.2016 - SEIDÄ PASS @ Dun Aengus Rattenberg (Tirol - Herz der Alpen / Austria) More "Perchten" Videos: facebook.com/seidaepass 👍 🔥 SEIDÄ PASS - Tankcore from Tirol – Austria 🔥 (German & Spanish description below) Since 1999 we, as one of many traditional “Perchten” groups in our region of Tyrol (Western Austria), chase away the evil “winter ghosts”. We do so every year on the 5th and 6th of December with the so called “Perchtenlauf”. It’s an ancient tradition and has developed over the decades but the ideology remains the same. The name of this tradition most likely derives from the legend figure “Perchta”. Our group consists of 25 people: One "Hex" (=witch), multiple "Läufer" (=runners) and plenty of "Tamperer" (=drummers) who are smashing on old car gas canisters. As mentioned we keep the tradition but try to mix it with creative new rhythms. A good show while having a lot of fun are the most important elements of our yearly “Hexentanz” (=dancing witch) events, up to 10 shows in 2 days. This Video shows one of them! Keep on sharing to show the world how we roll in Tirol! 🙂 🔥 All multimedia content (c) SEIDÄ PASS and its respective authors.

Dezember auf den Straßen von Brixlegg, Kramsach, Rattenberg und Umgebung unterwegs um im Rahmen eines alten Brauchtums - den sogenannten "Perchtenlauf" - die bösen Wintergeister zu vertreiben. Der Name leitet sich am ehesten von der Sagengestalt "Perchta" ab. Unsere 25-köpfige Gruppe besteht aus einer "Hexe", mehreren "Läufern" in Fellgewändern und einer Vielzahl von "Tamperern", welche auf alten Autokanistern lautstarke Trommelklänge erzeugen. Tradition, kreative Rythmen, Spaß und ein gewisser Showfaktor werden bei unseren "Hexentänzen" jedes Jahr erneut zum Ausdruck gebracht! Teilt es weiterhin und zeigt der Welt wie’s läuft bei uns in Tirol! 🙂 🔥 🔥🔥 SPANISH 🔥🔥 🔥 SEIDÄ PASS - Tankcore de Tirol / Austria 🔥 Desde 1999, nosotros como uno de los varios grupos tradicionales "Perchten" de la región de Tyrol (Austria Occidental), ahuyentamos a los malvados "Fantasmas del invierno". Realizamos esto todos los años en los días 5 y 6 de diciembre con el llamado "Perchtenlauf". Es una antigua tradición que ha evolucionadoa través de los años, pero manteniendo la misma ideología. El nombre de esta tradición deriva de la leyenda llamada "Pertcha". Nuestro grupo esta formado por 25 personas: Un "Hex" (=Brujo), múltiples "Läufer" (=Corredores) y varios "Tamperer" (=Bateristas) que van golpeando viejos tanques de gasolina. Como antes mencionamos tratamos de mantener la tradición, pero tratamos de mezclarla con nuevos ritmos creativos. Un buen show mientras pasamos un momento divertido son los elementos mas importantes de nuestro evento anual "Hexentanz" (=Brujo danzante), realizamos hasta 10 presentaciones en 2 días. Es video muestra una de ellas. Sigan compartiendo para mostrarle al mundo como nos divertimos en Tirol! 🙂 🔥
