Early morning in the Anza-Borrego Desert and the sound of the didgeridoo mixes easily with the song of birds. Troy Page plays Desert Meditation.
Focusing on my breath and the sound of the instrument helps free my mind. I invite you to meditate with me in the vast desert landscape.
The Didgeridoo is sometimes called the Voice of Earth as the broad harmonics produced resonate within an ancient universal tone. Enjoy the beautiful landscape and let the healing sound wash over you.
Desert Meditation is a solo didgeridoo performance recorded by Troy Page in March 2012. An HD free sound healing video recorded in the Anza-Borrego Desert in California.
You can purchase copies of the audio on his Bandcamp page.
The didgeridoo (or didjeridu) is an unusual and ancient music instrument that (possibly) originated in northern Australia. There the Yolngu people call it the yidaki or yiraki. It is sometimes described as a natural wooden trumpet or drone-pipe and has been called The Voice of the Earth.
Traditionally, the didgeridoo was played as an accompaniment to ceremonial dancing and singing and for the surviving Aboriginal groups of northern Australia, the didgeridoo is still an integral part of ceremonial life.
This instrument is a powerful tool for sound healing. Listeners easily enter deep meditative brainwave states of theta and delta, which have the highest healing potential. The benefits reported include relief of joint, muscular and skeletal related pain as well as accelerated healing of bone trauma.
Anza-Borrego Desert State Park (ABDSP) is located within the Colorado Desert of southern California. The park takes its name from 18th century Spanish explorer Juan Bautista de Anza and borrego, the Spanish word for sheep.
At 600,000 acres (240,000 ha) ABDSP is the largest state park in California and the second largest in the United States. The region is of international importance for it’s almost unbroken fossil record including many unique species. Over 550 types of fossil plants and animals, from microscopic plant pollen to mammoth skeletons have been recorded.
