#048: 25 Years of Holosync Meditation

October 08, 2014

In Episode #48, Jesse interviews Bill Harris, meditation guru, founder of The Centerpointe Research Institute, and creator of Holosync Audio Technology. Bill tells us how we can gain more self-awareness in order to exercise choice in our lives, and how Holosync Technology can get us on the fast track to deep-level meditation.

We also get a sneak peek at the U.S. Military’s plans to make soldiers smarter and learn that – from a neurological standpoint – a mother’s love for her child and her dog aren’t so different.

  1. Andy says:

    Any Positive effect ?

    1. Jesse Lawler says:

      I’ve gotten the Holosync materials and have listened to their first track for about 5 of the last 7 days… It asks for 30 days on the first part of the program, and I’m going to basically do that “as recommended” before really evaluating. I’m not expecting to (necessarily) hover while sitting in a perfect lotus overnight.

      (And no, that hasn’t happened yet.)

  2. Cyrus says:

    It’s been 5 months. What’s your evaluation of Holosync now?

    1. Jesse Lawler says:

      Hi Cyrus — I find myself using it sometimes, but honestly a 30-minute session still “feels” a bit long for me most of the time, and I definitely didn’t follow the “once daily for 30 days” protocol that was recommended at the beginning. (Good for any habit-forming behavior, meditative or otherwise.) I do like the way it sounds… and find the experience to be a relaxing one — but how could it not be? Overall, I guess I remain lukewarm on meditation in general. I want to like it more than I do, but I’m not giving it the time/effort it deserves in order to see real benefits. (I’m like the person who wants to get skinny but keeps buying Oreos.)

  3. Freddie says:

    Hi Rhiannan. Bill Harris is an interesting guy, and The Holosync Solution is POWERFUL. I’m now on Awakening level 3 and my mind has never been clearer. Yes, it’s expensive but man is it good. When I move to a new level I can barely stay awake for a week into it… amazing what sounds can do to the brain and mind. It’s like novocaine!

  4. ben nguyen says:

    Does he contradict himself when he says that Holosync started after studying 2 pieces of research (14:09), yet he also says that he started when he was handed a tape with a crude version of Holosync (20:35)?

    It would have been interesting to hear how Holosync works.. and if other competitors (ex. Lifeflow) are using the same technology or doing something different.

    Finally, I wonder if there’s any merit to those gadgets that shine light into the ear/brain (ex. Valkee/Human Charger). Supposedly, it can fast track the time it takes to adjust your circadian rhythm. Dr. Satchin Panda should know more about this.

    1. Jesse Lawler says:

      Thanks for the tip on Dr. Panda, Ben. 🙂
